More than 40 flights were delayed, and a dozen cancelled at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport on Wednesday, as KLM ground crews went on strike.

A spokesman for KLM, a subsidiary of Air France-KLM, said the airline had cancelled 6 flights as a result of the strike. Other delays and cancellations were due to poor weather and repairs, making landing strips unavailable.

The airport’s website showed most cancellations were for outgoing KLM flights. Most incoming flights of all airlines were delayed by about an hour, with disruptions set to continue until mid-afternoon.

The strike, the second of its kind this week, was scheduled to last through the morning rush hour.
