The gateway to Amsterdam is through Amsterdam Airport Schipol, the city’s main international airport, 17.5 kilometres southwest of the city. The airport can be accessed using the train station running directly underneath Schipol’s passenger terminal complex. The train station has intercity connections with Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague, and Rotterdam, as well as outside links to Antwerp, Brussels and Paris.
You can fly via KLM, Netherlands’ national airline, which merged with Air France in 2004. For budget flights, KLM offers economy class Amsterdam flights on airplanes with 31” pitch seats, personal telephones with e-mail and text messaging functions, and personal TVs with audio or video upon request. KLM economy class passengers are served beverages, as well as a sandwich or meal depending on the duration of the flight. They'll no longer get free newspapers or alcoholic drinks, though, and short-haul European flights have no in-flight entertainment.
Economy fares offer flexibility in booking and cancelling flights. For cheap, no-frills flights, fly Ryanair, Europe’s largest low-cost airline that offers flights to Eindhoven, which is around 2 hours by bus to Amsterdam. Another budget carrier, easyJet, is one of Europe’s largest cut-rate carriers offering cheap flights to Amsterdam. Other budget airlines offering cheap flights to Amsterdam include Jet2, Vueling Airlines, and transavia. SkyEurope, a Czech low-cost airline, and bmibaby, a British low-cost carrier, both operate out of Schipol and offer cheap flights to Amsterdam.
