Amsterdam - Which Airline Which Gates?

Hi,

Can anyone give me an overview which airlines use which gates at Amsterdam? Also, which gates are Schengen, which not? What about Air France, always the same gate, or using any gate of otherwise KLM-used gates?

The Schiphol website is nice, but it doesn't have that info. The only one I know is that NW seems to use the E Pier. What about the others? Is there one Pier that is reserved for KLM? Any gates reserved for Transavia?

Finally: what about the cargo stands? Are some of them reserved for Martinair Cargo, or any other carriers?

Thanks!

These are not definite; very few airlines have a daily hall. Thank you for correcting the mistakes, anyway.

In my dreams, as far as SVG is concerned (I live there).
You may be mistaken with the old Braathens SAFE.
In which case your list is a bit dated.

There is no longer anything called Maersk Air - it is all Sterling. (Technically the DM prefix now refers to a pseudo company called Sterling Blue - which will cease to exist on march 26th)

This really got me in trouble one day, as I had forgotten that those are on different floors - in my case the D-pier only went as far as D57 (or so) and I had to be at D75... then I had to back and take the higher floor, nearly missed my flight, the D-pier is big!



I scratch my head, therefore I am.

Pier H is also used by SkyEurope (BUD, BTS, KRK, soon PRG) and Wizzair (BUD)

Actually, OS 374 and 376 (afternoon and evening flights to VIE) are operated by Tyrolean.


The D-pier is an interesting one as it is flexible Shengen/Non-Shengen. The Shengen part is on the upper floor, the non-Shengen part on the lower floor, they switch it at the doors of the gates.


Slightly off-topic, but concerning the H-pier. When opened, it was stated the pier could handle 50+ daily departures, so plenty of space to expand left. But... it is non-Shengen. And when the central- and eastern European countries and Switzerland will join the Shengen treaty, there is not too much low-cost flying left for the H-pier. The UK (but to me I don't feel there is much room left in the UK-NL market), Ireland, Turkey... Does anybody know what the plans are in this field? Any plans for a Shengen LCC pier?

I have to say, these posts make AMS sound like a somewhat complicated airport to encounter. However, having flown both schengen and non-schengen flights out of AMS, the airport was very easy to navigate carrier to carrier.

Yes, it will be called "M-pier" and is indicated on some of the big yellow airportsigns already. It's actually the same as the H-pier. I think they just need to figure out how to seperate he Schengen and non-Schengen passengers.

They now offer daily service to DUS instead. Maybe they booked your cargo on a road-feeder to DUS, they booked space on the KL flight, or they routed it through CPH?

Nope, the cargo was for their own Riga flight (BT612) I've clearly read it on the booking form...
It isn't a really big shock that BT stopped their AMS flights, passenger loads where very, very poor on the 737-500 (mostly around 30 to 40 pax) The last period they where always cancelling flights and operated just 1 x weekly to AMS, which is the worst thing you can do to try to make a better reputation...
Again, KLM is the winner on a route with 2 daily flights, but with such a tinny airline as BT as competitor it isn't that difficult...

Hmm interesting, well maybe they extended the service for a while.

Even before KLM entered on the route, loads were poor. Back in 2004 when I I flew BT 611/612 a couple of times, I often had a seat row for me alone.

But indeed, after KLs 2x daily service, nothing but low-yielding pax were left for BT.

Swiss has changed to the G-pier when the winter schedule has become active (maybe slightly before)
It's pretty funny when you have to find the Embraer 145 for the Basle flight between the widebody's at the G-pier, becausse they are not parked at the apron but at G02 Big grin
