American Airlines announced that they will no longer sell Amsterdam tickets due to increased chaos in airports. The decision has been taken by the airport Schiphol themselves. This decision is however a temporary one but it is thought to severely impact passenger movement. On July 4, 42 KLM flights are returning empty as returning tickets are not available.

The proposal has been put forward by Schiphol on 29 June. The Schiphol airport has been regarded as the fourth busiest airport during the pandemic period.  The peak dates from the summer on both sides will be honoured. Existing tickets or those sold earlier will be considered but customers will not be able to book new ones.

Approximately two-thirds of the airports globally are expecting travel disruptions. The Dutch hub has been struggling hugely with passenger management lately. The increase in the number of customers and the unavailability of the pilots has pushed the management to be very difficult. However, this blow will hit badly the customers who are going home. The flights will be available for the passengers to go but the return flights will be unavailable.

Presently, American Airlines offers two flights a day. These are Philadelphia International (PHL) from Schiphol (AMS), and a daily service to Dallas/Forth Worth International (DFW). The airline is preferred by many passengers, travelling to America and Europe, each week 3633 seats are sold to Amsterdam each week.
