Rail manager ProRail will be over the coming days, which means less train traffic to and from the airport. The rail works will take four days, starting on Thursday. On Thursday and Friday, trains from Amsterdam will still be able to reach the airport. But over the weekend there will be no train traffic to Schiphol. NS will deploy buses to replace the trains, NU.nl reports.

The rail works will happen between 1:00 a.m. on Thursday and 5:15 a.m. on Monday. Over this entire period no trains will run on the route Schiphol Airport - Leiden. The intercity direct on the Amsterdam Central Station - Rotterdam Central Station route will also be out of service.

On Saturday and Sunday there will also be no trains on the Amsterdam Sloterdijk/Amsterdam Zuid - Schiphol route and on the Diemen Zuid - Duivendrecht route.

Over these four days Prorail will perform maintenance on the railway, sleepers, points, overhead lines and electricity supply at dozens of locations around Schiphol.
