what is the latest to leave Amsterdam to catch flight?

Post by Kev kirk » Sat 11th Nov 2017 06:16 pm

Hi fellow acd’ers was looking for drawing on your previous experiences. what is the latest time you left the city to get to airport. Only doing a day trip my nxt visit and would like to maximise my time in the dam.my flight home is 9.45 they say you should be there 2 hrs before but would rather still be in a Coffeeshop than sitting in an airport I won’t have any luggage so was thinking as long as I am on the train by 8.30 this should give me enough time to get through schipol and make my flight

You will miss your flight.

Flight at 21.45 means gates closed 21.15.
Allow 1 hr. from Train platform at Schipol to Aircraft gate - safe if security is moving.
So 20.15 arrive Schipol means be on train departing Central Station by 19.50.

RECOMMENDATION IS CATCH PRE 19.30 TRAIN, NECK A SPACE CAKE OR 2 ON TRAIN AND HAVE A COUPLE ROLLED FOR OUTSIDE SCHIPOL BEFORE GOING THROUGH SECURITY.

Works every time for me ☺

Standing in Schipol at 21.45 with no weed watching your aircraft leave without you is a very very bad Buzz.
