Amsterdam's Schipol airport
Post: #1
I am thinking about booking the Croatia's Istrian Coast for next year, and can fly from my local airport.  However, this involves changing flights at Amsterdam’s Schipol airport.  

So before I book has anyone ever changed flights here, and how difficult is it?  There are about 3 hours between flights outbound and 4 hours coming home.

Any information will be very welcome.

Thanks
Sylvia

Sylvia,

I have been through Amsterdam before and you won't have any problems.  Although it is a large airport it only has 1 terminal and everything is very well signposted.

Hi Sylvia,

I frequently travel through Schipol as I can fly direct from Glasgow and avoid Heathrow! You have allowed plenty of time to transfer. As mentioned in a previous post there is only one terminal and everything is clearly signposted. Great shops too!

Cheers,
Hils

Hi Sylvia

Yes I agree with Dawn. It is definitely an easy airport to negotiate due to the excellent signage

Thank you Dawn.  That’s good to know.  Have not finally  decided because the flights via Amsterdam leave and arrive at silly-o’clock, and the airport is about an hour’s drive from home.  Decisions, decisions, decisions...............

Thank you everyone.  Still not decided, but have plenty of time.  Don't fancy checking in at 4.20 in the morning, and landing at 22.10 on the way back. The time between flights at Schipol are the airlines timings, and there is nothing i can do about them.

Heathrow will be more expensive but less tiring.  Will give it moree thought, but at the moment I am reluctantly coming down on the sided of Heathrow.
