Schiphol Airport Served Nearly 3.8 million passengers in February 2023

Number of departing passengers at Schiphol Airport will increase by 65% heading into May holidays

The Netherlands: Schiphol is gradually expanding the number of passengers that can depart from the end of March. The average number of daily departing passengers will increase by 65% from 40,000 last winter period to 66,000 during the May holiday. On peak days during the May holiday, the number of departing passengers will be well above 70,000. Schiphol believes a five percent easing of the busy morning peak is needed to reduce the risk of unacceptable delays for travelers at check-in, security check, and passport control. This means 5% fewer seats can be booked. 

The number of passengers that will be able to depart from Schiphol is 14% higher than the number of passengers departing in the May 2022 holiday (58,000 passengers on average) and just below the 2019 pre-covid figures, when an average of 72,000 passengers departed each day.
