At least five flights have been cancelled between Norwich and a major city-break destination this week.
Journeys between Norwich and Schiphol in Amsterdam were disrupted by apparent bad weather on the continent on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.
A statement on the Norwich Airport website said: 'On behalf of KLM may we apologise for this cancellation and any inconvenience caused.'
One man posted on Twitter on Tuesday evening that his KLM flight from Schiphol had been cancelled 40 minutes before departure.
Jodie Moore, from Wymondham, was returning from his honeymoon in Tanzania on Monday morning. He had taken two previous flights over 19 hours of travelling.
Mr Moore, 31, said that although the couple were swiftly found a flight to Heathrow, their luggage was lost.
He said: 'Nobody would take responsibility and no apology. Terrible service and terrible end to our honeymoon.'
