What airports serve Amsterdam from San Francisco?

Flying from San Francisco to Amsterdam, Netherlands, requires you to board a plane from SFO or San Francisco International Airport, the second-largest airfield in California and the busiest in the San Francisco Bay Area. By passenger count, it is the seventh busiest airport in the US and 24th busiest in the world. To avoid road traffic from downtown San Francisco, board the AirTrain Red Line train at the BART station. This should take you 30min to get to SFO. You’ll alight at AMS or Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, commonly referred to as Schiphol Airport. Located in Haarlemmermeer, southwest of Amsterdam, AMS is the biggest airport in the Netherlands and one of the world's busiest. Its passenger terminal has three sections where you’ll find restaurants, baby care rooms, massage services, ATMs, and currency exchange services. Moving from Amsterdam Airport to the city center takes around 25min by Bus 397 or a taxi.
