Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from Birmingham

Birmingham is England's second largest city and a centre of manufacturing and commerce. The city is served by Birmingham Airport, which is 10 kilometres from the city centre. The airport is located in the Solihull region. During World War II, Birmingham Airport was used by both the Royal Navy and the RAF.

Flights from Birmingham to Amsterdam take off from Birmingham Airport, which is not too far away from the city. This airport returned to civilian use in 1946, after briefly being a military base during the war. Currently, the airport serves millions of passengers every year, and is one of the busiest airports in England.

Getting to Birmingham airport

To catch Birmingham to Amsterdam flights without any hassle, leave Birmingham's city centre a little early. The easiest way to get to the airport is by taking a bus or a coach. Take bus 900 to get there quickly. You can also take National Express Coaches 777 and 422 from Birmingham Coach Station, to reach the airport. Another option is to take one of the black cabs which can be found across the city. This airport is also connected by Birmingham International Station, to which there are trains from various parts of England.

Arriving to Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city that has something for everyone and is a great place to experience Dutch culture. Begin your journey at Oude Kirk, an ancient building that dates from 1306 that never ceases to amaze its visitors. Next, ride a bike along the 17th century canals, an authentic Amsterdam experience. These narrow lanes along the canals are lined by a number of cafes, which are a must-visit when in Amsterdam. In the afternoon, head towards Stelling van Amsterdam, a collection of 42 forts that were built to prevent flooding. After dark, visit De Wallen for some traditional Amsterdam-style nightlife.

How to get to the city centre

Flights to Amsterdam from Birmingham don't take too long. Moreover, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is not too far away from the city. Just walk to the railway station outside the airport and take a train to Amsterdam Central Station. Connexxion runs the special Amsterdam Airport shuttle service, which is very comfortable and swift. If you prefer the bus, you can take the 197 to Central Amsterdam, and 310 to Amsterdam South. There are also a variety of taxi services available outside the airport, and they are useful if you are going towards one of the lesser known neighbourhoods of Amsterdam.
