"worst airport, rude security"

Review

My wife was sexual asulted by a female customs agent a short haird 50 or so for no reason she rubbed on. Her breast in her lower private area pulled to a secluded area behind a curtain. When my wife asked the woman if she was going to make her flight to America. The woman rudely responded "if your lucky"
Why do they need to hide my wife from the public eyes to malest her. If they are not doing anything wrong the question that should be asked who is this privacy search suppose to be protecting? My wives privacy or this malester. They should be video taking these behind the curtain searches so if a victim like my wife has a grievence due to the agents sexually search and very bullying comment if this was recorded we could hold these violated of the law could be terminated from their job and prosecuted

I cannot believe how unprofessional the customs agent s are in the Amsterdam airport this was not the first time my beautiful highly educated Russian wife has been harrased in this shot airport.

She refuses to to ever go back to the neo Nazi tactics she and our family and friends Will boycott this shot country and refuse to ever by another Heinkin beer again

Conclusion
Facilities: Very Poor
Check-In Area: Very Poor
Security Level: Low

"It can be a walk"

Review

Although the airport is fairly spread out and could use some kind of transportation system to bring you from one end to the other I always like to travel through it. Whether it's transiting or as my starting point the airport always has a good feeling and the right kind of services available. Being a high enough level with KLM's frequent flyer program and flying BC certainly helps as well.

Conclusion
Facilities: Good
Check-In Area: Excellent
Security Level: Satisfactory

"The big problem is the security"

Review

The airport in theory is not bad, but due to its security staff is by far the worst in the world; every time I have to go through it I feel extremely unconfortable; whenever I can, I try to go via any other airport. Security is extremely rough, shouting, incompetent and with procedures wrong, idiotic and clearly illegal: for instance if they spot something in your hand luggage which they do not like, there is someone checking what you have, assume two pens, a badge, two bunches of keys, two usb sticks; after visually seeing that what you have is nothing special they take all this stuff in a plastic tray and they want to check it again under x-rays: now the problem is not only that there is no need to put under x-rays again something which has been visually cleared and clearly unharmfull, but mainly that they take all your stuff away from you (you are not allowed to go with them at the beginning of the long line) so that 1) they could loose something and you could not prove it 2) someone could drop something inside the tray and you would be fully responsible. Not surprisingly a few years ago someone landed in Florida and found in is luggage a bag of coke put there for training and forgotten by the security. Stay away from that airport

Conclusion
Facilities: Good
Check-In Area: Satisfactory
Security Level: Low

"pretty good airport"

Review

I have travelled a lot of times to, from and via Amsterdam-Schiphol. I like this airport particularly the great connectivity with the city. It is well organized, and it's very easy to find directions and not to get lost in this huge airport. Lots of facilities, shops and restaurants. The queue at security may vary depending on the time of your flight, and sometimes it turns out to be really long! But on the whole, it's a pleasant airport.

Conclusion
Facilities: Excellent
Check-In Area: Good
Security Level: High
