Schiphol as a neighbour: Living near the airport

Having an international airport as a neighbour has its advantages, but at Schiphol we are fully aware that it can also cause problems. We work hard to make sure you can enjoy living and working near the airport; we do our best to limit inconvenience, ensure safety and keep a close eye on air quality. If you have any questions about how we do this, please contact the Local Community Contact Centre Schiphol (BAS).

A look ahead at air traffic 2 - 8 August 2021

  • 1,030 flights per day expected (average)

    In the week of 2 - 8 August, we expect an average of 1,030 flights per day at Schiphol. More people travel by plane during August and September. We therefore expect an average of more than one thousand flights per day in these months.

  • 8 peak moments per day expected

    We expect 8 daily peak moments: 07:20 – 09:00 (landing), 09:20 - 11:00 (take-off), 12:40 -13:40 (landing), 14:20 – 15:20 (take-off), 15:20 – 16:00 (landing), 16:00 – 17:00 (take-off), 18:40 - 20:00 (landing) and 20:20 - 21:40 (take-off).

  • All runways available

    There are no runway works planned for this week. Which runway is used for take-off and landing depends on a variety of factors, including the weather conditions, runway availability and air traffic volumes.
