@FM: you are right.

A "polder" is an area of land reclaimed from the sea, "baan" means track (as in part of a road) or - in this case - runway. Circa 40% of the Netherlands land surface used to be sea, estuary, bay or lakes.

The whole of Schiphol airport lies on reclaimed land, below the sea level, but this new runway literally lies amongst the agricultural landscape with which the word "polder" is usually associated in Holland, hence "polderbaan".

I like Schipol. I've been there so many times last year when I was studing in Rotterdam.

It's so far out of the rest because they planned another runway between the Polderbaan and the Zwanenburgbaan, also another runway is planned to run next to the kaagbaan. The Buitenveldertbaan should be closed if those 2 runways are built.

If everything goes the way schiphol wants, yes. But surrounding inhabitants aren't so happy with further expansions.
But if those plans are completed Schiphol can grow towards 85 million passengers per year. There is this beautiful map of future schiphol with all the new runways and a new terminal on the internet somewhere. I can't find it unfortunately

It's something like this, black are the new runways, red and pink are excisting and new highways. Blue is the possible new terminal:

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport & KLM

Hi all,

Let's post pictures of KLM in this thread and keep it going, such as A330 & 747-400, Cabin Shots, Flight Crew, Schiphol Airport & KLM in other cities.

3 weeks ago I went to Tehran from Toronto via Amsterdam. Below are pix from my trip to Tehran via Amsterdam.
I will soon post the pix from coming back.

***I know the quality is not great since I forgot to adjust my picture sizes to large but on the way back the pix are with a high quality and I'll post them soon


Flight time going

Toronto to Amsterdam = 6:15 hours
Amsterdam to Tehran = 5 hours

Coming back

Tehran to Amsterdam = 5:30 hours
Amsterdam to Toronto = 7:00 hours


Enjoy :Cheers:

In Toronto Airport



Leaving the terminal



In the air- Very beautiful clouds and peaceful views

Going out to Amsterdam- Here is Schiphol Plaza, A big shopping centre right outside of the arrival hall in Schiphol.



Coming back to Schiphol for my flight to Tehran you can visit the panorama restaurant right outside the departure area in Schiphol on the roof top. remebre to see this place you need to leave the transit area and show your passport.

It's such a huge and fun roof top with great views of the airport.
