Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (Luchthaven Schiphol) is the Netherlands’ major international airport, and a significant international hub in its own right – in terms of international passenger movements, it’s the world’s sixth largest airport. It’s also a primary hub for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and several smaller carriers.


Schiphol is 9 km (5½ miles) south-west of Amsterdam. There’s a domestic and international train station directly below the airport, and several bus connections to nearby Dutch cities.

For those travelling by road to the airport, the airport’s website has a journey planner to find the best route for their journey. Unfortunately this wasn’t working properly when we tried it.
