Emirates further cancelled flights to Europe on Sunday.

Dramatic footage from inside a turbulent plane trying to land amid Storm Ciara's high winds is going viral after it featured a terrified woman screaming for her life.

According to the New York Post, the Air Europa flight attempted to land five times at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, but failed because of Storm Ciara's buffeting winds.

Many passengers can be heard crying, while a woman screams out, "Oh my God!"

Other passengers reportedly vomited several times during the hour-long ordeal, until the pilots decided to turn the plane around to its origin point of Madrid, Spain.

A spokeswoman for Air Europa told Metro: "The Flight UX1093 from Madrid to Amsterdam couldn't land at Amsterdam airport due to bad weather and returned to Madrid.

"Passengers were attended to at all times, accommodated in hotels and alternatives to reach their destinations the day after were managed by our staff."

About 220 flights were cancelled Monday morning at Schiphol airport - Europe's third-busiest - due to the storm, which claimed at least six lives across Europe.
