Traffic Review 2021

Schiphol connects the Netherlands with the rest of the world and vice versa. In 2021, our network of destinations was still affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the recovery in passenger air travel during the first half of the year was slower than foreseen in late 2020. Demand for air travel began rising once global vaccination rates started to accelerate and airlines began reintroducing services to reopened destinations. The total number of destinations to and from Schiphol, including passenger and/or cargo services, reached 296 in 2021, compared with 316 destinations in 2020. In 2021, Schiphol welcomed 25.5 million passengers (up 22% year-on-year). The airport recorded a total of 266,967 air transport movements (ATMs), an increase of 17% compared with 2020. Total cargo volumes at Schiphol amounted to 1.67 million tonnes in 2021 (an increase of 15.7 % year-on-year). More in depth statistical details are available in the Annual Traffic Review.
