Departing flight

Meet others in the parking lot

We kindly ask you to remain in your car in the car park and wait for any travellers you may be picking up, or to say goodbye to each other when you are parked. Don't enter the departure hall and wait in your car. We understand it isn’t the nicest thing to do, but it means that we can ensure that everyone who is inside Schiphol needs to actually be there. You don't have to go to the parking meter either, because you can easily pay your parking costs at P1 with your mobile phone.

Face mask mandatory

Of course, we do understand if you are joining a travel group in Schiphol and there is no other option – for instance, if they need assistance. Please ensure that you maintain a 1.5-metre distance from other travellers and wear your face mask all the time.
