Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Information
Schiphol is located nine miles (15 km) southwest of Amsterdam's city center. It is 36 miles (57 km) from The Hague and 46 miles (73 km) from Rotterdam. An information desk in the arrivals hall is open 24 hours. Schiphol's Web site offers lots of useful information, including:
- A map of the departures and arrivals halls
- Airport access information
- Flight information
There is good taxi service from outside the arrivals hall. The fare to central Amsterdam is about 65 guilders ($30) and the ride takes around 30 minutes. Fare to The Hague is about 115 guilders ($55) and to Rotterdam about 180 guilders ($85). Note: Traffic during morning and afternoon rush hours is intense and best avoided.
Excellent service is available to Amsterdam stations which offers connections to other cities in the Netherlands. There is plenty of luggage space and the trains are clean, comfortable and fast.
Trains leave the airport station every 15 minutes from 6 A.M. to midnight, and every hour from midnight to 6 A.M. The station is easy to find, just a short walk from the arrivals hall: Follow the signs after exiting customs. Travel time to central Amsterdam is about 20 minutes. Purchase tickets before boarding. One-way fare is about 5.50 guilders ($2.60).
There is also direct train service to Amsterdam RAI (the convention center) and to other cities such as The Hague, Rotterdam and Vlissingen.
All major rental car companies are represented in Amsterdam, but you should not rent a car if you are going to central Amsterdam. Parking is extremely difficult, and driving involves an obstacle course of trams, canals, one-way streets and cyclists.
Schiphol (IATA: AMS, ICAO: EHAM) (municipality Haarlemmermeer) is the Netherlands' main airport. Located south of Amsterdam (52° 18' 31? N, 4° 45' 50? E), Schiphol aims to be a European mainport, competing in passenger and cargo throughput with Heathrow International Airport in London, UK, Frankfurt International Airport in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Roissy, France.
In 2004, Schiphol ranked fourth in Europe in terms of passenger traffic with 42,541,000 passengers, behind London Heathrow (67,344,000), Paris Charles de Gaulle (51,260,000) and Frankfurt International Airport (51,098,000).
Schiphol has 5 main runways, plus 1 used mainly by general aviation aircraft. The "fifth runway" (really the sixth) was completed in 2003. Plans have already been made for a seventh runway.
The airport is built as one large terminal split into three large departure halls, the most recent having been completed in 1994, which converge again once airside. There are plans for further terminal expansion.
Because of the intense traffic and high landing and parking fees at Schiphol, more and more holiday-carriers have moved some of their flights to smaller airports, such as Groningen, Rotterdam, Eindhoven and Maastricht.
Schiphol is the home base of KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines), Martinair and Transavia.
The Dutch Railways operate a major passenger train station directly underneath the passenger terminal complex. Thalys International operates a TGV rail service between Amsterdam, Schiphol, The Hague HS, Rotterdam, Berchem Rail Station (Antwerp), Midi Rail Station (Brussels) and Gare du Nord in Paris.
