Reserving Amsterdam flights is easy as the city is home to just one International airport, the main airport for the Netherlands.
The award-wining Amsterdam Airport Schipol is located approximately 20 minutes from the Amsterdam city centre. It is an important airport for the Netherlands, as well as the rest of Europe with well over 100 air carriers operating to/from here. For Canadians, the most affordable Amsterdam flights are routinely offered onboard Charter Air Carriers including Sunwing, Air Canada Vacations and Air Transat. When travelling with a Charter Air Carrier there are a few important details to keep in mind:
- Charter Air Carriers do not operate year-round service, but rather seasonally during the peak tourist travel times – typically from late-May or June to September or October.
- Departures are not available every day of the week, so some flexibility may be required from your travel dates to secure a Charter flight.
- Service may not be available from every Canadian gateway, so a connecting flight may be required to take advantage of the Charter flights.
Additionally, the Amsterdam Airport Schipol is served by a multitude of Scheduled Air Carriers from Canada. These carriers provide a year-round service which departs daily, and in some cases many times a day. Beyond the country’s National Air Carrier, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Air France, British Airways, Swiss International, Austrian Airlines and many more operate between Canada and the Netherlands.
No matter what type of airline you are travelling with, Charter or Scheduled, travellers should be aware that many flights from Canada to Amsterdam are not direct. This means that before arriving into the famous city, you’ll need to connect through another major gateway, typically in Europe. This is not to stay that there are no direct flights at all. From Canada to Amsterdam some direct flights are available, most often from the Charter Air Carriers and from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
In 2011 the Amsterdam Airport Schipol won several major awards, including first place in the ‘more than 25 million passengers’ of the "ACI Europe (Airport Council International) Best Airport awards 2011". Passengers who have travelled to or through the airport are not surprised. Service is quick and friendly and many amenities & services can be found within to make travel even more enjoyable.
