The security checkpoints at the gates are set to disappear, to be replaced with security checkpoints at five central locations: three in the Departure Halls and two for transfer passengers. In the new situation, passengers travelling to a non-Schengen destination (such as the United States or the United Kingdom) from Schiphol will be screened at a central location at the airport. After this screening, you will be at leisure to shop, grab a bite to eat or visit one of the many attractions at the airport. This means you will no longer be screened at the gate.
