Are you flying from Schiphol soon? Travel efficiently and with as little baggage as possible. If you travel with checked baggage, it’s helpful if you put all of your hand baggage belongings in there. Are you only travelling with hand baggage? Then we kindly ask you to only bring one piece of baggage with you and to leave your carry-on at home.

We understand that given the crowds at the airport you would like to arrive at Schiphol well ahead of time. Please consider that you are only welcome at the departure hall 4 hours before your flight. This way you help us spread out the crowds better and stimulate a smooth flow around the check-in desks and the security control.


Are you earlier at the airport? Then you can wait inside Schiphol Plaza until you can enter the departure hall. We advise you to use public transport to come to the airport, you can then arrive directly at Schiphol Plaza.
