Both the UK and Dutch healthcare systems are reporting the mutated virus, which is spreading faster than the already known virus.
The UK is usually an important market for KLM and KLM Cityhopper, which transport many travelers from the land to Schiphol to provide transfers to connecting flights.
The flight ban came into effect on Sunday at 6 a.m. and will apply until January 1 at the latest, the cabinet said in a statement. The measure was taken as a precaution on the recommendation of the RIVM. Freight can be transported.
Travel by car, boat and train is still possible but is not recommended unless clearly necessary or you need to return to the Netherlands.
