Prepare for your flight
Do I need to get tested before I fly?
Many travel destinations require you to have a negative COVID-19 test result. Before you fly, check what is applicable to you and make an appointment for a corona test.
Do I have to wear a face mask at Schiphol?
We kindly request that you wear a face mask from the moment you arrive at Schiphol to when you get to the plane, or from the moment you disembark to when you are outside again.
Do I need a health declaration?
Your health and that of your fellow travellers is what we consider to be the most important thing. That is why we ask every traveller to complete a health declaration and bring it along.
Can I wave goodbye or welcome someone inside?
We ask that you wait outside when picking someone up or dropping them off at Schiphol - you are not permitted to enter the terminal. Do you want to pick someone up or drop them off at Schiphol during curfew hours? Unfortunately, this is not allowed.
When do I need to go into quarantine?
The Dutch government strongly advises people returning from countries that have been given a red or orange colour code to go into quarantine for ten days.
Which measures can I expect?
There are fewer travellers but we have to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres, which can mean that it can actually seem busier. How can we give each other enough space?
