Amsterdam Schiphol airport (AMS)

Amsterdam airport is one of the busiest in Europe, as in addition to direct flights, it has many connecting flights to and from other continents. For this reason, many passengers have flights late at night or early in the morning. Because of a low budget of simply for comfort, many travelers decide to spend the night inside the facilities to wait for their corresponding flights, and in this case this is possible because the terminal is open 24 hours a day. As any airport with a lot of movement, the Schiphol is very bright and quite noisy at night, so it is recommended to have earplugs, an eye mask, a blanket or warm clothes, because at night it is usually quite cold. Keep in mind that after midnight the security staff usually verifies that passengers have a boarding pass.

Where to rest: In the boarding area there are many seats with no armrests. Near hall D there is a rest area with comfortable seats for resting. In addition, between halls E and F you can find an internet kiosk with padded chairs and benches. As for the public area, comfortable seating is available in a coffee shop located on the left side of the terminal. There are also a few VIP lounges inside the enclosure, although these close at night.
