Schiphol Airport on lockdown as plane ‘hijacked by three men with knives’

“The captain onboard the flight is reported to have pressed the ‘hijack’ button on the plane, security sources have told Dutch media.

Various gates are closed at the airport and passengers are being kept at a distance.

“There is a suspicious situation and that’s all I can say,” a spokesman for the military police said.

Pete Martin wrote on Twitter: “Stuck on a plane just landed at Schiphol.

“We are waiting on the runaway taxing area. Just been told by captain about a serious incident.”

The airport is the third biggest in Europe in terms of passenger volume.”
