Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is a well-equipped international airport with modern facilities. It offers these facilities to 101 scheduled airlines that transported 51 million passengers and 1.5 million tonnes of cargo to their destination via the Mainport in 2012. Via Schiphol airport, passengers and cargo have direct access to 317 destinations all over the world; several times per day or per week. In addition, our regional airports Eindhoven Airport and Rotterdam The Hague Airport offer many direct European flights.
Schiphol airport, the KLM and SkyTeam hub network and the surrounding Amsterdam metropolitan area together have become Mainport Schiphol. Consequently, Mainport Schiphol is more than an airport with a worldwide network. The Mainport functions as a complex of mutually reinforcing companies and activities. Together they form an international and multimodal hub of flows of people, goods, money, information, knowledge and culture. Mainport Schiphol has become a high-level hub that connects the Netherlands through an extensive network to important economic, political and cultural centres in Europe and the rest of the world. As such, the activities at Schiphol are an important driving force of the Dutch economy and employment. It also makes the Amsterdam area an attractive location for internationally oriented companies and institutes. Its network of connections, which for the most part is formed by the dense European and intercontinental network of KLM and its SkyTeam partners, makes Schiphol one of the four main European airports.
