Amsterdam airport Schiphol put on partial lockdown amid ‘plane hijacking’ scare (PHOTOS) Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport was partially locked down, as armed police converge on a parked airplane. An entire section of departure gates were sealed off.


Dutch gendarmerie announced on Wednesday evening that they were investigating a “suspicious situation” aboard a plane at the Netherlands’ main airport. As armed officers descended on the plane, the airport’s ‘D’ departure gates were cordoned off with police tape and travelers left stranded.

Photos shared on social media supposedly show the departure area completely empty and closed behind police tape.

Though rumors of a potential hijacking or hostage situation spread, the gendarmerie announced shortly afterwards that all passengers and crew aboard the pane had been safely evacuated. The airline, Air Europa, then stated that the hijacking alarm had been triggered by mistake, and that “nothing has happened.”
