Media: Plane from Spain to Amsterdam not hijacked

AMSTERDAM

The airline said on Twitter on Wednesday that "Amsterdam's protocol for security was activated owing to a temporary loss of communication between the plane and air traffic control."

National Dutch broadcaster NOS spoke by phone with a person it identified as one of the passengers on board who said that the plane was calm and there was no hostage situation.

Media had reported that the plane was escorted to Schiphol by two F16 fighter jets.
