Find the cheapest flight to Amsterdam

Getting to Amsterdam by plane is easy – Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (airport code AMS) is The Netherlands’ main airport, and is one of many main entry points to Europe from overseas. It’s been voted the best airport in the world several times, and holds the distinction of being the lowest airport in the world – it actually sits below sea level. Schiphol is 15km from Amsterdam, and is the home base for KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines), Martinair and Transavia, and it’s a hub for Northwest Airlines. Many low-cost airlines have moved their services to smaller airports, but a few maintain a presence at Schiphol, including easyJet, SkyEurope and bmibaby for routes like flights from Dublin to Amsterdam.

You’ll find large shopping areas on both sides of customs (so obviously not just for actual travelers), a full-sized supermarket open until midnight every day, and people can even get married right at Schiphol – very convenient if you’d like to leave directly afterwards on your honeymoon.
