I've been thinking about what exactly makes Amsterdam such a busy airport.

In my view there are a few reasons:

-The location.
-It is the only major international airport serving in the Netherlands and it serves more than 15 million people.
-The colonial history of the Dutch.
-KLM

What do you think? Any other explanations?

Amsterdam is a capital of a small country geographically. therefore, a short haul flight to her surrounding neighbors in Europe such as the UK, Germany , Denmark and France will consider tobe an international traffic. The same situation as Singapore and Hong Kong really. An hour flight from Singapore to KL is international.

I think you're correct on the whole. Europe is a good stop-over point between Asia, Africa and the Americas, so Amsterdam would be amongst the top few airports for just that reason.

I also know that almost all former British colonies are accesible by air from Heathrow, so I suppose the same applies for Schiphol.

Other reasons would be the close proximity of other countries, and the quality of the airport and its terminal buildings

I think you covered it pretty well. The only other things I can imagine are that the cost of flying a plane into Schiphol is relatively inexpensive when compared to other European airports. In addition, English is almost the national language of most Dutch citizens and it is also the unofficial international language thus most people feel very comfortable in the Netherlands. The Netherlands may also have good reciprocity rights with countries all over the world, which allows KLM to fly more frequently to and from more countries than airlines based in other countries without such good agreements.

By the way, the above is solely my guess at why AMS is so popular in international travel. My propositions are not based on any research that I've done, but are pure speculation.

This is a list of 10 busiest in the world as of 2004:

1. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Atlanta, Georgia, United States (ATL) 83,578,906....
That's about right. According to the ACI list of the 100 Busiest Airports-International Passenger only ATL is number 66 with 6.2 million international passengers. That would be your number that you stated above, which when added to the 77 million domestic passengers equals the 83.2 million total passengers.

I think it has alot to do with the pool partnership of KLM and Northwest and a continuing expansion of the infrastructure ie: runways (now 5 3000m+ and 1 1500+), terminal and early implimentation of schengen (borderless EU travel) infrastructure.
10 years ago AMS and Rome FCO were on nearly a identicle standing. In the last 10 years AMS has rocketed ahead of its old rival. In 1994 the government predicted AMS would hit 40 million passengers in 2015. This had alraedy happened by 2001. A huge increase thus. AMS is always a forerunner in new airport inovations and continually works to improve its possition.
