easyJet has announced plans to increase the number of flights it operates between Glasgow and Amsterdam with the introduction of a sixth weekly flight.|
From 27 March 2017 the airline will add an extra two weekly flight between Scotland’s largest city and Amsterdam with flights operating daily excluding Saturday. The increase in capacity is in response to strong and growing customer demand for the route with over 500,000 passengers travelling between Glasgow and Amsterdam in 2016. The new enhanced flight schedule will provide more choice and greater flexibility for both business and leisure travellers.
With its characteristic canals (UNESCO World Heritage) surrounded by narrow, low and crooked 17th-century houses, Amsterdam is, without a doubt, one of the most charming capital cities in Europe. With a rich cultural life and a wide range of entertainment, Amsterdam is a full-scale city which has managed to retain its small-town feel. Amsterdam is also a real treat for art-lovers. Amsterdam is home to over 50 museums, many of them famous across the globe. Highlights include the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum. For the visitors who have already seen the beautiful canals pioneered the Jordaan and got the hang of our never-ending nightlife... there is plenty more to experience and explore. The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area offers a great variety of surprising and unusual attractions and landscapes.
The increase in flights to Amsterdam further cements Glasgow Airport’s position as Scotland's gateway to the Netherlands with upto five daily flights to Amsterdam.
