A Delta Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration N815NW performing flight DL-234 from Detroit,MI (USA) to Amsterdam (Netherlands), had landed on Amsterdam's runway 18R (Polderbaan), vacated the runway via turnoff V3 and taxied along taxiway V being cleared to continued taxi via taxiway Z to holding point Z2. Another aircraft was on final approach to runway 18C when the A333 followed taxiway Z and was handed off to ground. The crew received instruction to continue taxi via taxiway Z and A to gate E17 reading back (holding point) Z2 to gate E17. Radar data suggest the aircraft turned off taxiway Z via taxiway W11, crossed the hold short line without clearance to cross the runway and crossed runway 18C prompting ground control to call out "Expedite your cross please!" and vacated the runway at W10 without clearance to cross. The aircraft subsequently continued their taxi without further incident.
The Dutch Safety Board (DSB) opened a short investigation stating that no risk of a collision existed although an aircraft was on approach to runway 18C stating that the A333 did cross the most southern part of the active runway 18C.
