Due to the expected heavy snowfall at HEL tomorrow, Finnair has cancelled some domestic flights and one Brussels flight from Jan 8. All customers affected by this have been contacted for rerouting.

Finnair apologises for the inconvenience this is causing!

KLM cancels flights due to limited runway capacity at Amsterdam Schiphol
Due to the expected storm tomorrow, Tuesday 8 January 2019, there is very limited runway capacity at Schiphol. Only one runway can be taken into use. That is why KLM decided to cancel 159 European return flights for Tuesday. The passengers concerned have been informed and rerouted today. KLM advise passengers to keep a close eye on KLM.com for the most up-to-date departure and arrival information. Not only KLM is cancelling flights: no less than 25% of all Amsterdam Schiphol flights of 8 January are already cancelled.

VIP-traffic is expected at AMS Amsterdam today: president Abe of Japan.

Aircraft: JASDF 20-1101 and 20-1102, two B747-400's from the JASDF. Flight numbers JF-01 and JF-02.

I wonder what Groen-Links (the Green Party) thinks about the fuel consumption and CO² emissions by 2 x 744's.

Hibernian Airlines (Ireland) obtained its AOC from Irish regulators, with a planned initial fleet of three CRJ1000s for the European wet lease market.

The airline is part of the Air Nostrum Group (Spain), just like CityJet. Why two Irish affiliates?
