Police have swarmed to Schiphol Airport this evening after reports of a suspected hijacking during boarding of a plane.

There are unconfirmed reports that men armed with knives have attempted to hijack an Air Europa plane that was due to fly to Madrid this evening.



At least 27 passengers were on board when the hijacking alert was reportedly triggered.

Some flights at the airport have been grounded, according to a passenger on a plane that had been due to take off this evening.

A so-called Grip 3 report has been issued by special forces in the Netherlands, reports De Telegraaf.

Well, did the plane lift-off, or didn't it? Seems to me they should have a decision by now. Amsterdam airport on lockdown after reports of plane being hijacked  2190311264

Coming in well after this was resolved, but ... seems somebody bumped the wrong button or something, it was a false alarm.

There was a trainee in the cockpit and the pilots were explaining all the various systems and one of them hit that particular button too hard or by mistake, apparently it wasn't the trainee.
