Eindhoven Airport Mini Guide
Why Should I Visit Eindhoven?
Renowned as an industrial city and home to Phillips Electronics, Eindhoven doesn’t initially spring to mind for a holiday or a short break but the city is well worth visiting. For one of the best collections in the world of modern and contemporary art, visit the Van Abbemuseum where you’ll see works by all the famous 20th century artists. Also of interest is the DAF museum. DAF manufactured cars and lorries in Eindhoven for decades and this museum is dedicated to their products but is also interesting for its representation of a street of houses and company offices from when the company began in the 1930s.
How do I get to Eindhoven?
Eindhoven has its own airport just less than five miles from the city. Low cost airlines such as Ryanair and Wizzair fly to the destination with Ryanair operating a route from Stansted
and CityJet operating out of London City Airport
. A range of options are available to get to your destination from the airport.
What can I Expect When I Arrive at the Airport?
It’s a big airport and quite futuristic. The airport building is fronted with glass so you can see all that is going on inside. The airport has air bridges for many of its flights so dependent on your carrier you should be straight into the terminal building from your aircraft. Once through the efficient passport control you’ll collect your bags and be in the main arrivals hall. If you’ve lost any baggage there’s a lost luggage desk for Eindhoven Handling which will be able to track down your cases.
For any further information about the airport and its facilities there’s an information desk located very visibly in the main arrivals hall. Exchanging money is easy at the GWK Travelex Office. Money can be ordered in advance for collection there or you can use the ATM. If you’ve arranged a hire car you’ll need to finish off the paperwork at the company’s desk. There are clear signs in English directing you to the desks and once the formalities are done, you’ll find your car in the parking area to the right of the terminal building as you exit it. If taking public transport, there are several bus routes, many of which go via the railway station for connections to other Dutch cities.
And What About When I Leave Eindhoven?
Check-in is quick and efficient and after you’ve deposited your baggage you’ll have plenty to do in the airport. There are three food outlets operated by Restaurant Belvedair. Rather unimaginatively they are called ‘Small’, ‘Medium’ and ‘Large’. ‘Small’ is a café/bar serving sandwiches and cold snacks, ‘Medium’ serves a range of hot and cold meals together with drinks whilst ‘Large’ is a full a la carte restaurant serving delicious meals in elegant surroundings. There’s also an outlet of ‘Small’ after security.
Shopping isn’t fantastic there with just two shops before security, one being a newsagent and the other a flowers and gift shop. After security you have a clothing and jewellery shop and the duty free but Wi-Fi is available free of charge in the airport should you wish to expand your range of shopping further!
- Having already added several new routes in the winter season, Ryanair are continuing to expand their operations at Eindhoven Airport with new routes beginning this summer from Carcassonne and Warsaw's new airport; Modlin. Not to be outdone, Wizzair are also introducing a route from Modlin and one from Debrecen.
- Eindhoven began its expansion plans in 2012 and they are expected to conclude this year with the redevelopment and expansion of the terminal and the completion of a 120 room hotel - perfect when you arrive on late night flights.
