A total of 5.2 million travellers flew from, through or to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in June, a surge of 211.8% compared with 1.67 million in the same month last year.

The airport noted that ‘3.8 million passengers travelled from or to a destination within Europe, 1.4 million outside of Europe’.

In June 2020, the passenger volume at the airport was 500,000.

However, the latest figure is still lower than the pre-pandemic level of 6.5 million travellers in May 2019.

In the first six months of the year, the airport’s passenger count was 23.7 million, an increase of 323.9% compared with 5.6 million in the first half of 2021.

In June, commercial flight numbers to and from the airport were 36,921, up 92.3% from a year ago and a 355% jump from June 2020. However, the number was down 15% from the same month in 2019.

In June, the total transported volume stood at 116,274 tonnes.

Transported tonnage fell around 16% from the same period in 2021 but was 7% higher than in 2020. Compared with 2019, the figure dipped by 6%.

As at other airports, Schiphol has been experiencing disruption recently due to staff shortages following the pandemic.

Recently, the airport limited passenger numbers with a 16% capacity reduction over the summer period to address travel chaos.

Meanwhile, the Dutch Government has decided to cap the number of flights at Schiphol to 440,000 a year in a bid to lower emissions.

The decision will be effective from next November.
