Airline apologizes for false alarm about security incident at Amsterdam airport

A false alarm about a security situation brought Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport to a standstill Wednesday afternoon.

Dutch Royal Military Police and emergency services rushed to the airport amid what the airport's Twitter account described as a “suspicious situation,” according to CNN.

However, police soon announced that a hijacking warning had been accidentally activated about an outbound flight, an Air Europa jet headed for Madrid. All crew members and passengers though safely disembarked.

The airline apologized in a tweet and said the passengers would be resuming their travel.

"Nothing has happened, all passengers are safe and sound waiting to fly soon," Air Europa said.

Schiphol is Europe's third busiest airport, behind London's Heathrow and Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport.
