The Netherlands took a serious action against Airbnb

in Travel Industry News

against Airbnb

Airbnb has quickly become one of the most popular accommodation services when you go on holiday. More and more people prefer “on demand” to the detriment of traditional ones, and much faster payment processing contributes to this choice.

The popularity of the service has given rise to more or less conventional businesses. People started buying or renting apartments to list Airbnb for profit. Even though most countries do not have a problem with this, it is not the case of the Netherlands, namely Amsterdam, who was tired of Airbnb tenants. If until now the citizens of Amsterdam, one of the most visited cities in the world, were allowed to rent their dwellings through Airbnb for 60 days a year, this period was now reduced to 30 days due to the disaffection of the tenants in the various buildings of homes that no longer tasted of the “diversity” of sporadic neighbors, some of them even scandalous. Practically, for a city assaulted by millions of tourists every year, such a decision would reduce the number of scandals broke in certain areas and would even help to decongest traffic in an overcrowded city. Several tourist centers, such as Paris, London or New York, also resort to laws limiting the duration of the Airbnb rental of a home.

Three men were also arrested by the German authorities at Cologne-Bonn Airport. All 151 passengers were evacuated from the aircraft and the flight was suspended for three hours at the German airport. Following the intervention, the German authorities detonated a backpack belonging to one of the suspects. “Before that, the pilot received information about a suspicious conversation aboard, and then decided to make an unscheduled landing on the Cologne-Bonn airfield. After a safe landing … the 151 passengers left the plane through emergency exits and were taken to a transit gate, “said a spokesman for the Koln-Bonn airport. Passengers also had to pass immediately through security filters and the authorities also checked the EasyJet. It seems that other passengers have decided to let the flight crew know of the suspicious conversation between the three men, which had a terrorist content. All passengers received one night at the hotel and left Sunday morning to London.

German police announced on Sunday that they found no explosive on the EasyJet plane that had landed the day before in Cologne (West Germany) because of “suspicious conversations” heard on board, AFP informs. The three British 31, 38 and 48-year-olds arrested after landing, continue to be interrogated by the police. According to the authorities, none of them are in the security services database. The police inspected the plane with the help of the genius dogs before announcing that he had found nothing suspicious.
