Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Facts

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is located just 5.5 miles (9km) southwest of Amsterdam
and is the main international airport in the Netherlands. Schiphol Airport is the fourth busiest airport in Europe and sixteenth busiest in the world, according to passenger traffic figures from 2012. 91 commercial airlines operate from Amsterdam Airport, flying to more than 300 destinations.

Best Airport I Have Ever Been To

Mohammad Ameer Nusairat, May 3, 2013 at 7:26 pm

This is one of the best airports I have ever been to. AMS is a modern, clean and beautiful airport. Thanks to all of you who supported AMS.

All Awesome But Bags

Matthew Ross Rachar, April 21, 2013 at 4:39 pm

This has to be the best airport in every respect (transport, stores etc.) except they handle bags extremely slowly! When connecting they were so slow the bags didn’t make the flight.

Schiphol Airport - Amsterdam

A Gonzalez, April 3, 2013 at 10:19 pm

This is a city within a city: airport terminal, train terminal, restaurants, flower shop, and gift shops, and within walking distance of tourist spots like the museums and the Anne Frank house. And, it has the best feature I’ve seen offered in an airport — private shower and bathroom rental. They’re quite large and nicely stocked with fresh clean towels, shampoo, soap, hair dryers, and mirrors with decent lighting for doing your makeup. If you’ve just come from an overnight train ride and have yet to fly back to the US, it’s the best $11 you can spend before leaving Europe!

Very Very Beautiful

Bletina Spaho, October 2, 2012 at 6:00 pm

I recently visited Schiphol Airport and it was my 10th trip to AMS. Believe me it is very beautiful. I always love being there.

No Subway?

Rob Groenendaal, March 20, 2012 at 3:11 pm

This is a really surprising discussion, there is a large train station below the airport with regular trains to the city centre, connecting to the metro system with several points. Also high speed trains stop here to France and Germany. Although the airport is large (4th in Europe), there is one terminal only. No, there are no shuttles, there are moving sidewalks everywhere. I have been to many airports in the world and this is one of the best connected ones ever!

Excellent

Richard Denman, November 16, 2011 at 6:12 am

Excellent on all for a good airport experience.

One Of The Best Airports

Tammy Hosch, January 14, 2011 at 6:26 pm

Flew into Schiphol for the first time in November 2010. A colleague enthusiastically told me what a great airport it is and I was not disappointed! Good shopping, restaurants, rest areas, very efficient. If I ever had to be stuck at an airport for a delay in travel plans, this would be the place! Looking forward to flying into/connecting through this airport again. Kudos to Amsterdam/Schiphol!

Customer Service

Dick White, November 15, 2010 at 3:26 pm

Very limited and uncomfortable seating. Food very poor and expensive. Not a good airport.

Wonderful - My Us Friends Tell Me

Gerard Otten, May 30, 2010 at 6:50 pm

In my life for several years I have been flying 200 to 250 flights per year. My home base is Amsterdam. Schiphol I saw at least twice a week and additionally 4 to 5 airports during that week. My US friends – who mostly traveled together with me – all love the airport. Clean, quick and compact (transporter belts between terminals), clear communication, good hotel and transport facilities into NL (and abroad). I do not need to say that I am proud to report their findings.

Ams - Schiphol

Theodoor ' Tayo' De Boer., January 22, 2010 at 6:13 am

My country of origin has nothing to do with my selection of Schiphol easily being in the top 5 international airports. All airports have their peculiarities. When you consider efficiency, security, hospitality, and how clean it is, aren’t those the things the seasoned traveller is looking for? They even have ‘day rooms’ for those who want to take a nap for a couple of hours. Try finding this at your local airport if you’ve got a long layover, or you are not feeling so well. You can make a speedier exit if you have "Nothing to Declare", be the first at the rental counter or whatever. And as to the comments about "subways" I respectfully suggest that you rethink the definition. You won’t find any subways in the Netherlands (Not Holland, which is a province within the NL!!) I forget the exact figure but AMS is well below sea level by 10′s of metres. The Dutch have a very efficient transit system. Yes you can take a train directly to the central station in Amsterdam which will connect you to any destination within the country, or international destinations. There are also specially marked trains that are dedicated to taking passengers to and from AMS – they even take care of your luggage. The only thing they miss is a place where you can get croquettes !!

Best Airport In Europe

Roland Pertler, October 26, 2009 at 8:49 am

There should be no doubt that AMS Schiphol is by far the best airport in Europe and one of the best in the world.

Schiphol Airport

Danielle Hitchen-straver, July 28, 2009 at 1:18 pm

I think Lady Abigail has not done a lot of travelling in her life… No offense, but having seen at least 30 different airports during my travelling – I think it is safe to say that Schiphol is up there with the very best! Yes, there is no subway, but there is a train every 10 minutes that will take you into the center of Amsterdam, where you have the choice out of lots of different means of (very reliable!) public transportation. Sign-posting in the airport is very clear, and it is no problem having to hike from one gate to the other as there is plenty to see, eat and do!

Subway?

Abigail -, July 7, 2009 at 4:42 pm

I doubt Mr Daniel Mano has ever been to Amsterdam airport. There’s no subway stop anywhere near Amsterdam airport. Just regular trains, and busses. And if you have to go from one end of the terminal to the other, you’ll just have to hike. No shuttles.

Update On Airport Tax

Lianne De Boer, March 26, 2009 at 10:07 am

As of 1st of July 2009 travelling to and from Amsterdam airport will be cheaper. The new airport tax, which the government had introduced last year, will be cut from this date. Passengers flying within Europe will save 11,25 euro and passengers on intercontinental flights will save 45,00 euro.

Schiphol: Ups And Downs

Chantal Mulders, October 20, 2008 at 10:02 am

Schiphol is easily reached by public transport and very open. Terminals can be quite a hike, so leave enough time. Signs tell you how far you can expect to walk, so just pay attention. The best feature of this airport is the free museum on the Boulevard. It’s affiliated with the Rijksmuseum and usually offers nice paintings and other artwork. Spotting Dutch masters is a very good way of spending anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes. On the downside are the new tax regulations. Every person departing from AMS (including transfer passengers) need to pay 11.25 euro for flights within Europe and 45 euro for intercontinental flights. It has caused many Dutch people living close to the border to avoid Schiphol and fly from Belgium or Germany.

Schiphol Airport

Daniel Mano, June 22, 2008 at 5:30 pm

Truly the best airport I’ve been so far!! It’s so big that I think the subway itself makes 2 stops while in airport area!! Been there around 6-7 years ago connecting from Poland to Athens. Had 5 hours to spend in the city, but all I can remember is the airport! Not to mention that I nearly missed my flight due to wanting something to drink, lost the gate going back and didn’t find it until 10 minutes later (and a little time before gate closed) ! What an experience!

Ams Airport

Lynn Brooks, May 25, 2008 at 6:59 pm

Lovely airport with all conveniences and amenities. The KLM lounges are awesome, but you do need to be a member to take advantage. One problem, I arrived at the lounge (5:55am) before it opened for the day. I was surprised that the lounges are not open 24/7 as passengers are traveling round the clock.

Nice, Clean Airport

John Smith, April 11, 2008 at 5:32 am

Had a connection here a few times in the past. AMS is a nice, clean airport with friendly staff. Easy to navigate and it’s full of conveniences, like shops, rest rooms and even a hotel inside. The only issue is, this terminal/s is too big and it can take a while to get from one gate to the next and sometimes the gate changes a few minutes before the scheduled flight time. This can mean another 20 minutes or more walking or running to the other gate. If you do not speak English/French or German, this can be a nightmare and by the time you realize the gate changed, you missed your connection.

Sleeping And Shopping

Andre Cohen, September 24, 2007 at 8:30 pm

I would consider Schiphol one of the best airports in the world. Apart from the efficiency as arrival/departing/transit airport it offers a large variety of shops for big and small money spenders. It’s shopping centre is spacious and by using lots of glass windows offers a nice view to the apron. In case you stay overnight it gives you the possibility to sleep in the airport itself. The Airport Hotel in the non-Schengen Terminal offers a decent room for a reasonable price. It also has a sort of Spa, so you can relax as you wait for your next flight. You can reach even more luxurious hotels by foot within the airport. So compliments to Amsterdam

Schiphol

Pedro Teranova, August 2, 2007 at 5:45 pm

The airport has a hotel inside the terminal building and it is not expensive. Also in between KLM Crown Lounges on the first floor, one can find fantastic lounge chairs to relax and sleep a little. Schiphol truly is one of the best airports in the world.

Sleeping

Liva Stokenberga, July 12, 2007 at 12:07 pm

Overall the Schiphol airport provides an excellent service. The problem I encountered was that it is designed so that there would be no possibility to sleep between connecting flights (for an economy class passenger)

Fantastic!

Marc Davies, June 6, 2007 at 7:37 pm

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is probably the best airport I’ve ever been to. Service is outstanding, public transportation and accessibility is also fantastic. Lots to eat, drink and shop for. Thumbs up!

Comment On Schiphol

Hector Sesay, May 27, 2007 at 10:54 am

I have been traveling but I was very impressed with the services available at the Schiphol Airport. It has been the best Airport so far I have used

Schiphol Airport

Pieter Gert Wijtsma, May 20, 2007 at 9:11 pm

This used to be a compact one-terminal airport, when it opened in 1967. Since then, it must have trebled in size, with three terminals, but it’s still efficient and has a lot of space. Schiphol ranks fourth in Europe.

Excelent Lounges at Schiphol

Mark Splint, April 24, 2007 at 9:08 pm

Schiphol Airport offers cosy lounges and easy to use internet consoles (small fee) or simply connect to the net using wireless LAN or Wi-Fi!

Excellent but mind the low cost airline terminal

Kees Werdekker, March 22, 2007 at 4:39 pm

I have flown from/to this airport dozens of times and compared to other airports I can see why Schiphol is in the top league. But … as mentioned in a earlier comment, if you are unlucky your gate can be a 25 minute walk once passed customs. The airport has placed moving walkways wherever they can but some foot work is usually unavoidable. As with other airports, it seems that the most frequently used flights end up on gate 99. In fact, I wouldn’t even know if there is a gate 1 at Schiphol. Passengers traveling on low cost airlines note that on the new H terminal, specially built for these airlines, there are NO facilities. No drinks, food or shopping, not even restrooms!

Excellent

Brian Salling, March 7, 2007 at 1:08 pm

Best airport I have been to.

Excellent

Nigel Garth, January 3, 2007 at 5:56 pm

I have been through Schiphol a few times within the last few years and came to an understanding that it is one of the greatest functioning airports in the world, it is east to navigate as well easy to connect.

AMS

Florian Spisla, July 19, 2006 at 8:44 am

I’ve been through AMS twice, on my way to Lima and back. The signs are very good but the Terminals are quite a walk if your plane leaves or arrives at the far end. Otherwise a very friendly and nice airport!

Schiphol

Randy Reddman, April 7, 2006 at 1:00 pm

BEST airport I have been to! EASY to get around good maps and signs. If you have time…visit the museum in the airport. Good shopping to…
