Figures for traffic and transportation at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in September 2021: a nice improvement, but still barely half of what they were in 2019.
In September 2021, 3.4 million people flew from, via, or to Schiphol.
By September 2020, the figure had risen to 1.3 million. Without the effects of COVID-19 on Schiphol, 6.5 million people passed through the airport in September 2019.
The total number of flights to and from Schiphol was 30.019 (up 35% from 2020 and down 32% from 2019).
The total number of cargo flights in Amsterdam Airport was 1,783, up 7% from last year and up 41% from 2019. This resulted in a 7% rise in transported tonnage compared to previous year and a 3% drop compared to 2019.
In September, 1.3 million of the 3.4 million travelers transited via Schiphol. The 650.000 passengers who took a transfer were tallied twice in the international counting method: as an incoming passenger and as a departing passenger. 2.7 million people flew from or to a European destination, whereas 700.000 flew from or to a non-European destination.
In comparison to 2019, the number of all-cargo flights has increased from 1,265 to 1,783. In comparison to 2019, this compensates for the tonnage generally transported on passenger aircraft, with a total transferred volume of over 133,000 tonnes.
