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.
