About Amsterdam Airport

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (IATA: AMS , ICAO: EHAM ), known informally as Schiphol Airport (Dutch: Luchthaven Schiphol , pronounced [ˌlʏxtɦaːvə(n) ˈsxɪp(ɦ)ɔl])[a], is the main international airport of the Netherlands. It is located 9 kilometres (5.6 miles)[4] southwest of Amsterdam, in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer in the province of North Holland. With almost 72 million passengers in 2019, it is the third-busiest airport in Europe in terms of passenger volume and the busiest in Europe in terms of aircraft movements. With an annual cargo tonnage of 1.74 million, it is the 4th busiest in Europe. The airport is built as a single-terminal concept: one large terminal split into three large departure halls.

Schiphol is the hub for KLM and its regional affiliate KLM Cityhopper as well as for Corendon Dutch Airlines, Martinair, Transavia and TUI fly Netherlands. The airport also serves as a base for EasyJet.

Schiphol opened on 16 September 1916 as a military airbase. The end of the First World War also saw the beginning of civilian use of Schiphol Airport and the airport eventually lost its military role completely. By 1940, Schiphol had four asphalt runways at 45-degree angles. The airport was captured by the German military that same year and renamed Fliegerhorst Schiphol . The airport was destroyed through bombing but at the end of the war, the airfield was soon rebuilt. In 1949, it was decided that Schiphol was to become the primary airport of the Netherlands. Schiphol Airport was voted the Best Airport in Western Europe in 2020.[6]


About Innsbruck Airport

Innsbruck Airport (IATA: INN , ICAO: LOWI ), also known locally as Kranebitten Airport , is the largest international airport in Tyrol in western Austria. It is located approximately 4 kilometres (2 1⁄2 mi) from the centre of Innsbruck. The airport, which was opened in 1925,[1] handles regional flights around the Alps, as well as seasonal international traffic to further European destinations. During the winter, activity increases significantly, due to the high number of skiers travelling to the region.
