Hundreds of Red Cross camp-beds for stranded travelers Eindhoven Airport

The Red Cross provided 500 beds for stranded passengers at Eindhoven Airport on Monday.

Because of the winter weather many travelers at the airport were stranded. Many flights were canceled or delayed. Hundreds of passengers had no accommodation outside Eindhoven Airport and so they stayed overnight at the airport. Some 300 camp-beds were occupied in the night from Monday to Tuesday.

“In principle, the Red Cross is always ready for this type of request,” says a spokesperson. ‘If, for example, a flat is vacated for whatever reason, we are often called upon to provide emergency assistance to the residents’. Each bed was also provided with a bag with toiletries, a blanket and a pillow.

Meanwhile, the weather situation in the region is calm again. Airplanes from and to Eindhoven Airport can fly again according to a normal timetable. The thoroughfares are almost all ice-free and the trains are hardly experiencing problems caused by the weather anymore.
