Amsterdam airport is one of the busiest airports on the European continent, as, in addition to direct flights, it serves as a connection for many routes to and from other continents. For this reason, many passengers have connecting or direct flights in the early morning hours. For reasons of convenience or even budget, it is essential for many passengers to remain within the facilities while waiting for their flights, and this is made possible by the terminal's 24-hour operation.

Like any busy airport, Amsterdam's airport remains brightly lit and noisy, so it is advisable to have earplugs, a face mask and a blanket or warm clothing on hand, as it tends to get chilly at night. Be aware that after midnight, security personnel usually check that passengers have a boarding pass.

As for the public area, comfortable seating is available in a cafeteria located on the left side of the terminal. There are also some VIP lounges within the terminal, although these are closed at night. There are also a number of hotels both within the main building and in the surrounding area.
