Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has welcomed more than 68 million passengers in its terminals in 2019, making it the third largest airport in Europe. As a hub for KLM and other airlines, passengers wishing to travel from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport can choose from 322 destinations around the world.

Getting to Amsterdam city centre from the airport

Train: This is the fastest and cheapest way to get to the centre of Amsterdam from the airport. Trains from the airport to Central Station are very frequent and will get you there in less than 20 minutes.

The bus: If you wish to reach a specific place in the city, the bus is the most suitable public transport option. It should be noted, however, that it will take you longer to reach the centre than the train.

Taxi: Whether you are overloaded with luggage or just a practical person, the taxi is still the most convenient option to get to the city centre of Amsterdam. From the airport to the hotels in the city centre, you can expect to pay around €50 for your journey.

  • CitizenM Schiphol Airport (4*)
  • Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (4*)

Keeping busy in the airport

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has been named the most pleasant airport in the world several times. Here is a selection of what you can do there.

Reimbursement of flight and expenses

Cancellation or overbooking of a flight gives the injured passenger the opportunity to request a refund from the airline. Once the passenger has made the request, the airline has 7 days to make the refund.

In the case of a cancellation or overbooking that occurs in the middle of a trip with stopovers, the passenger is also offered the option of requesting a return flight to his or her original airport. In this context, it is entirely possible to request a refund for your flight and the return flight back to your point of departure.

If you don't want to miss your holiday simply because your flight has been canceled or overbooked, the European regulation also gives you another possibility. Instead of asking for a refund for your flight, you can ask the airline to take you to your destination by another means than the originally planned flight. They will then have to find you an alternative flight that will take you to your destination either as soon as possible or at a later date, provided that seats are available when the request is made.

Also, a flight delay may allow you to request a refund. However, the delay must be at least 5 hours. If this is your case, you can then request a refund for your flight as well as a return flight to your home airport, if your trip includes at least one stopover. If you do not want to cancel your holiday, you can of course request an alternative flight to your destination instead of the refund.

Airline assistance

Another right you have when you cancel, delay or overbook a flight is the right to be picked up by the airline. This includes :

  • The ability to hydrate and replenish oneself sufficiently;
  • The right to two phone calls or sending two emails.

There are two situations in which you may be entitled to such assistance from the airline.

Or, your trip has been canceled or overbooked and you have decided to request an alternative flight to get you to your destination.
In this case, assistance will need to be provided to you while you are waiting for this replacement flight.

Or your trip is disrupted by a flight delay.
In this case, assistance will have to be provided during the waiting period before boarding.

However, the flight delay must be within a certain framework to trigger an obligation on the part of the airline to take charge.

European Regulation EC 261/2004 sets this framework.

  • 2 hours delay or more for flights of less than 1500 kms;
  • 3 hours delay or more for flights over 1500 kms within the European Union and 1500 to 3500 kms for other flights;
  • 4 hours delay or more for all flights over 3500 kms.

My flight's rescheduled for tomorrow, what can I do?

If a flight departing for the next day is the only offer an airline can reasonably make to you, the obligation to provide assistance will then extend to the accommodation of the injured passenger.

In this case, the airline will have to provide you with free hotel accommodation for the night. If the hotel is far from the airport and requires transportation to get there, it will also be at the expense of the airline.

The company hasn't helped me, what can I do?

If the above conditions are met, the airline is obliged to take care of its passengers.

Nevertheless, airlines sometimes force passengers to bear the costs that may result from a flight incident by evading their obligation to take charge. Fortunately, European regulations give these stranded passengers the opportunity to request reimbursement of the costs incurred.

If you have been forced to pay for transportation, accommodation or food expenses due to the company's failure to meet its obligations, keep your receipts. They will allow you to claim reimbursement later.

    Compensation for flight disruptions

    In some cases, a flight cancellation, delay or overbooking may entitle you to compensation.

    For such a right to be granted, however, your flight must meet certain conditions. The first condition concerns your airport.

    You are departing from an airport in a member country of the European Union.
    In this case, European regulations may apply for any airline.

    You are arriving at an airport in a member country of the European Union.
    For the European regulation to apply, the airline must have registered its activity within the European Union.

    Then there are two formalities necessary for your flight to be eligible.

    • The flight reservation is in your possession;
    • The latest check-in time indicated by the airline has been respected. In the event that the airline did not specify a check-in deadline, you checked in no later than 45 minutes before departure.

    Finally, special conditions are taken into account, depending on the disruption that has hit your trip.

    You've been denied boarding.
    In this case, the European regulation describes your right to compensation as immediate and does not specify any specific conditions for obtaining it.

    You faced a flight delay.
    In order for a flight delay to be compensated, the European regulation stipulates that it must be at least 3 hours long. It should be noted that it is the delay on arrival at the final destination that is taken into account.

    You faced a flight cancellation.
    For a flight cancellation to be subject to compensation, European regulations take into account the notice period.

    This means that you can claim compensation, unless the airline has informed you of the cancellation

    • At least 2 weeks before the scheduled departure time ;
    • From 7 days to 2 weeks before the scheduled time of departure, if a rerouting leaving no earlier than 2 hours before the scheduled departure and arriving less than 4 hours after the scheduled arrival, has been offered by the airline ;
    • Less than 7 days before the scheduled time of departure, if a rerouting departing no earlier than 1 hour before the scheduled departure time and arriving less than 2 hours after the scheduled arrival time, has been offered to you by the airline.

     

    Therefore, if your flight complies with the conditions set out, and the flight disruption cannot fall within the scope of extraordinary circumstances (i.e. it is the result of the airline's activity and it was able to foresee the incident), you are entitled to compensation.

    The amount is not based on the fare at which you bought your ticket, as it might be logical to think, but on the distance of the booked flight. It is :

     

    • 250€ for cancellation, overbooking or delay of more than 3 hours of a flight of 1500 kms and less;
    • 300€ for the delay of more than 4 hours of a flight of more than 3500 kms;
    • 400€ for the cancellation, overbooking or delay of more than 3 hours of a flight of more than 1500 kms within the European Union and for all other flights from 1500 to 3500 kms ;
    • 600€ for the cancellation, overbooking or delay of more than 4 hours of a flight of more than 3500 kms coming from or going to a country outside the European Union.
