 AMS Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Info & Guide


Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

Where is Amsterdam Schiphol Airport?  


AMS Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (IATA: AMS, ICAO: EHAM) is the Netherlands' main airport, located 20 minutes (9.1 kilometres; 5.6 miles) southwest of Amsterdam, in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer. The airport's official English name, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, places the words in the Dutch order (Luchthaven Schiphol) instead of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The airport used to have the IATA code of SPL, which has fallen into disuse and has been replaced by AMS.


The Schiphol Airport is built as one large terminal, split into three large departure halls, which converge again once airside. The most recent of these was completed in 1994, and expanded in 2007 with a new part, named Terminal 4, although this part is not recognized as a separate building. Plans for further terminal expansion exist, including the construction of a separate new terminal between the Zwanenburgbaan and Polderbaan runways that would end the one-terminal concept.


Schiphol is an important European airport, ranking as Europe’s 4th busiest and the world's 12th busiest by total passenger traffic. It also ranks as the world’s 6th busiest by international passenger traffic and the world’s 17th largest for cargo tonnage. 49.8 million passengers passed through the airport in 2011, a 10% increase compared with 2010.


Because of intense traffic and high landing fees, some low cost carriers decided to move their flights to smaller airports, such as Rotterdam and Eindhoven. Many low cost carriers (like easyJet, SkyEurope, and Bmibaby) continue to operate from Schiphol, using the low-cost H-pier.


Schiphol Airport is the home base of KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines), Arkefly, Martinair and Transavia.com, and a hub for Northwest Airlines in cooperation with KLM.
