It’s easy to find cheap flights to Amsterdam, with most major UK airports flying to Schiphol Airport several times a day. It’s a popular destination year-round – there is still business travel when the tourism season dies down, and Amsterdam is also a major hub for international flights. With flight times of as little as an hour, it’s a quick and easy journey too.
The Dutch capital is renowned for its lively nightlife and the traditional good looks of its centre, with tall houses lining the canals and grand civic buildings fringing its squares. It’s also packed with museums and galleries, including the superb Rijksmuseum.
The average non-stop flight time between the UK and Amsterdam is between 1 hour and 1 hour 35 minutes, meaning it’s a quick flight wherever you fly from. Indirect flights can take from 3 hours 35 minutes to over 5 hours – however, most major UK airports have direct flights to Amsterdam, and direct is normally the cheaper.
