Temporary Departure Hall is put into operation: 3 priority waiting areas

In April, the Temporary Departure Hall at Schiphol is put into operation. The hall – which will be used by around 2 million passengers each year – is Schiphol’s response to the strong growth in the number of Schengen passengers.

The Temporary Departure Hall provides an extension of check-in and security capacity, which creates more space for our passengers. The new hall bears the name Departure Hall 1 – check-in desk row 1A. The Temporary Departure Hall has 22 check-in desks and 6 security lanes for passengers with a destination in the Schengen zone. Austrian Airlines, KLM, Lufthansa, LOT Polish Airlines and SWISS AIR will be using the hall. You can reach the Temporary Departure Hall in 2 minutes from Departure Hall 1 by way of a corridor.

For you as a Privium member, the new departure hall also has a priority waiting area. So you can be assured of a quick passage here as well. Will you be departing from pier B, C or D to a Schengen destination? Then there are 3 priority waiting areas available for you to use, rather than 2, located in Departure Hall 1 and the Temporary Departure Hall.
