Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is further limiting passenger numbers this fall as the Dutch hub struggles to find security staff and reduce crowds at the airport.  

Royal Schiphol Group NV announced the decision a day after chief executive Dick Benschop said he would resign from his role because he does not want the attention on his leadership to “become an obstacle for Schiphol.”
