Which airlines fly to Amsterdam from Australia?

Amsterdam insider flight tips

  • The cheapest flight deals to Amsterdam from Australia can usually be found with China Southern, especially for travel from Sydney and normally requires one or two stopovers in China.
  • The shortest flight times (around 24 hours from Sydney) can generally be found with a changeover in the Middle East (eg KLM, Etihad, Emirates, Qatar).
  • AMS is well served by public transport but you may find a very long queue for the ticket machine. Tickets can’t be purchased in advance but one way around this is to find a tourist information desk (there’s one between the train station and baggage belt eight) to buy a multi-day Amsterdam Travel Ticket. The pass is much better value than buying single tickets and covers unlimited second class travel on buses, trains and trams, which serve the airport, city and major attractions. This might not be worthwhile if you’re visiting in the warmer months though as Amsterdam is the perfect size to discover by foot or bicycle – or by water transport which costs extra.
