3.4 million passengers flew from, via or to Schiphol in September 2021. In September 2020 that number was 1.3 million. In September 2019, without the effects of COVID-19 on Schiphol, 6.5 million passengers travelled through Schiphol. The number of flights to and from Schiphol was 30.019 (+35% compared to 2020, -32% compared to 2019). The number of cargo flights was 1,783 (-15% compared to 2020, +41% compared to 2019), which contributed to a 7% increase in transported tonnage compared to last year and a 3% decrease compared to 2019.


Of the 3.4 million passengers in September, 1.3 million passengers had a transfer at Schiphol. The travellers with a transfer were 650.000 unique passengers, who are counted two times in the international counting method: as an arriving passenger and departing passenger. 2.7 million passengers travelled from or to a destination within Europe, 700.000 outside of Europe.


The number of all-cargo flights has increased, from 1,265 to 1,783, compared to 2019. This compensates for the tonnage normally transported on passenger flights compared with 2019, with a total transported volume of almost 133,000 tonnes.
