Yes, they only operate two services a day to AMS, but they also only have a small fleet and the fleet does keep busy on other flights in between the AMS services (with the everyday risk of creating knock-on delays for later flights).
Large fleet/higher frequency = more aircraft to turn to when one goes tech or gets delayed.
Small fleet/lower frequency = fewer flights risking getting delayed but bigger impact if an aircraft goes tech or gets delayed.
Its all swings and roundabouts so the fact that they serve AMS twice a day should not detract from the award AMS has given them.
