AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A problem with air traffic control systems at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is preventing flights from leaving or arriving on Wednesday, ANP news agency reported.

The agency cited airport and air traffic control sources saying the problem began shortly after 1 p.m. local time. The airport’s website currently shows only two inbound flights as delayed.
