Served by all the major international airlines, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) is considered to be one of the finest in Europe in terms of both its facilities and efficiency. All signs at the airport are in English as well as Dutch, and the symbols used are recognised internationally. A compact airport, it is only a short walk to the baggage area and the well-stocked duty-free shops.
Schiphol has many information points where you can go with all your questions. These points are located before as well as past customs. The yellow Schiphol information desks can be recognised by the Schiphol Airport logo. They are located before passport control in Arrivals 2 and 3, between Departures 2 and 3 and past passport control in the lounges. The information desks in the lounges are also equipped with self-service information computers that can be consulted 24 hours a day. Maps of Schiphol showing not only the piers but also an overview of all services are available in the arrival and departure halls, lounges and at the beginning of the piers. At the transfer desks you will be able to get further information about your transfer, or check in for your connecting flight. The eight transfer desks are located on the piers.
Schiphol Airport has over 100 shops to offer, including the Schiphol Plaza shopping centre where you will find boutiques with all types of clothing, jewellery by famous designers and restaurants. For original gifts and souvenirs you can go to one of the many gift shops. There are many bars and restaurants, both before passport control and after, ranging from plush oyster bars to and Irish pub, and also including a sushi bar.
If you have a long wait before your flight, there are two airport hotels, a spa and massage centre as well as a casino.
Schophol Airport offers two main business centres; the Exchange Avenue conference centre and Regus Skyport Meeting Centre. The Exchange Conference halls are twelve state-of-the-art meeting rooms, designed to accomodate from two to 80 people in the eight conference halls and up to 14 people in the four boardrooms. The airport can also organise catering for your meeting. Wireless internet is available throughout the airport.
The airport has provided wheelchairs in parking garages P1 and P2, and also at the Schipol Plaza shopping complex. You need a two Euro coin to use the wheelchair, but this is refunded when you return it. Hearing loops have been installed throughout the airport at information and transfer desks, and in the Lounge Central seating areas.
Axxicom Airport Caddy (AAC) can also provide extra assistance, from arriving at the airport to departure, and will aide you throughout the process.
The easiest way to reach Amsterdam from Schiphol Airport is by taking the train. The station is located directly underneath the airport, and can be accessed by walking through the Schiphol Plaza shopping complex. Tickets can be bought in the station area, and the journey to Amsterdam takes between 15 to 20 minutes. The train can also be used to reach Utrecht, Rotterdam and Den Haag.
It is also possible to take a bus into town on one of three bus networks. The Schiphol Sternet network carries passengers to many of the surrounding town. Zuidtangent express network has two lines which use bus-only road lanes, making your journey even quicker. Line 300 stops at Amsterdam Zuidoost and 310 at Amsterdam Buitenveldert. Lastly, Interliner also has an express bus service (Interliner line 370) which calls at Amsterdam Zuid and Amsterdam Centre (Leidseplein).
Complimentary Hotel Shuttles
Several hotels offer free shuttles to and from the airport for a quick and easy transfer, between the hours of 06h00 and 23h45. They include the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the Mercure Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and the NH-Schiphol Hotel.
A taxi service is provided by Schiphol Travel Taxis. This can be either a shared or a private service, and uses minivans. Several private companies can be contacted in advance to arrange transport in a Mercedes or similar sedan, for example BTC and Airport Taxi Amsterdam.
