Attn AMS Spotters

On July 27 and 28, you will have the misfortune of getting an Elbonian at Schipoll. Hope you won't mind me.

Anybody else will be there these days ? Tim ? Wietse, other Dutch ?

Technically I should be able to be there. Always subject to change ofcourse. But I do not have a holiday planned on those days. And uni doesnt start until september.

Are you able to get to the terrace at AMS once you are in the Gate area? I'll be flying into AMS from DTW early on July 26 then leaving out later in the morning and will have some spotting time, but wondered how I can get to the terrace.

There are large windows in the gate area but you will need to clear customs and immigration before you can get to the terrace.

Too bad I can't get there. On the other hand, I'll go to RHO for two weeks.  Big grin

You're most welcome.

It might be possible that I am around there, but these are a tuesday and wednesday, so only in the evening (have to work of course).

Kind regards,

to get to the terrace from the secure area you have to pass passport check, pass the baggage claim area, pass customs, and go all the way up.
Then you need to pass security and passport check again when you want to get back to the gate area.

If you have a boarding pass this is no problem, just takes some time (depending on how busy it is).
I wish I were flying

Actually since I am arriving from the U.S. I'll have to go through passport and customs before I transfer to my connecting flight within Europe. So once I'm through (really out) are there signs to the Terrace.

Thanks for the help.


Also I've asked around before, but when I return to AMS on Aug. 9th I'll be spending the night in around the airport, the city is Badhoevedorp, and I was wondering if there are any bike rental places for me to rent a bike for the day to go around the airport? If not I'll take the bus, but I'd like to head out to the far runway as I've seen some great pictures from there.

The Dorint Hotel in Badhoevendorp rents bicycles - search for 'fietsverhuur'.

Then there are also bicycle shops in Badhoevendorp.

Or you just rent a car for a day at AMS, much more convenient when the weather is bad.

Kind regards,
