Large and compact at the same time is the description I gave to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The airport is large in terms of the number of its runway(6 runways). However, the operation of the airport is too well-organized. Then, they do not need to have the 2nd Terminal.


I used Amsterdam Schiphol Airport more than 100 times as I spend half of my time here in the Netherlands. This airport has played the crucial rule to make the Netherlands the second best for the global connectivity.  The airport is divided into 3 departures(Vertrek). If you fly with low cost airlines, you may have to take longer time to walk to the gate. Anyway, the estimated time consumed to get to the gate will be shown on the overhead screen.


Not to be missed is the duty-free. Sometimes, you can buy a bottle of Blue label for just 137Euro( you save at least 63euro).


The airport is easily accessible by train and it would cost you 3.7 euro. The train usually leaves every 20 minutes to the central station. There are also many trains which go beyond the central station to other dutch and European cities.


I have flown with China Airlines several times. Unfortunately, they have decided to drop Amsterdam-Bangkok service. Instead, they fly directly from Amsterdam to Taipei(Hoping to get more customers to Australia).


Thanks to its resilient connectivity, more flights have come to AMS( Jet airways in 2016, Etihad in 2013 and Qatar Airways in 2015). Jet airways has moved its European hub from Brussels to Amsterdam last year.


Schiphol is a hub of the skyteam members(I guess more than half of the skyteam member are Mainland China based airline). Be prepared to do self-check in(you have to put the tag on your baggage by yourself) if you travel with the airlines which partner up with skyteam. In brief, you can go to almost anywhere in the world from this airport.


The immigration, when you arrive, at this airport is really fast( you will be waiting for your bags 10 or 15 minutes before your bags arrive). But it would take much longer time for departure due to the lack of security staffs.


You can even go to keukenhof directly from the airport by the shuttle bus.
