A Vueling spokesman said there was no hijacking of a plane at Schiphol Airport, and blamed the incident on a communication problem between the pilot and control tower.
The Vueling plane was parked at a remote corner of Schiphol, away from the main terminal, surrounded by security personnel and several ambulances.
