Our Top 3 Airlines To Fly to Amsterdam

Although I do not consider myself as a frequent traveler, I know that I have ample experiences when it comes to flight to Amsterdam. Additionally, my husband has been out and about with flying to The Philippines and The Netherlands since 2015. With all those times combined, I have summed up my top three airlines (in random order) to fly with if you are planning to visit the beautiful country where good quality of cheese and wooden shoes came from.

We've discovered this website called Expedia (this is by no means sponsored by the company) from a friend last year and in an instant, we gave it a try. That is also how we came across EVA Airlines. Not knowing about the airlines itself, we did not give it any doubt because of the cheaper seats it offers from Asia to Europe. It is a Taiwanese international airline based at Taoyuan International Airport, Taiwan.

What we like about them is that they have newer aircraft than the others we normally use. It is also commendable that they have wider and more spacious seats than normal. We liked the food they offer on the flights as well. No doubt they were awarded 5 stars in the airline industry. And with all these pros that I've mentioned, it is just amazing that they offer good deals with their air trips. It's just they have a limited array of entertainment and they have long stop/layover.

Another airline that we like is Etihad Airways, the second-largest airlines of United Arab Emirates. Because they are based in Abu Dhabi International Airport, they give us an equally divided and reasonable stopover from The Philippines to The Netherlands. That is, We also find that they have more and new movies on their in-flight entertainment (IFE). Our flights with Etihad mostly were one of the low-cost flights we can find online. Aside from that, we also receive milage points that we can exchange or redeem with some nice items from their website. The only thing that bums the entirety of the flight is the tight seats. I do not find any problems with it but those who are big-boned or corpulent passengers, it won't be very comfortable. (Side note: I like how they try to reduce plastic waste on their in-flight meals like using stainless steel utensils instead of the disposable ones. My eco-friendly ego is triggered. Haha!)

Also, we have the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines based at its home, Amsterdam (the national airlines of The Netherlands). Though they are a little bit expensive than the first two, it is one in our preference. One reason is that it is a company which we known for quite some time. The first time I flew with them was last 2015. I personally like the ambiance inside the plane because they use lively colors like white and blue. Not being biased because I love those colors but that factor adds to one's flight experience. Even though they are the oldest airline in the world, their airbuses remained following the newest trend there is. Sadly, they have stopped their direct flight from The Philippines to The Netherlands (which we practically prefer for ease of transit). Anyhow, they give good service with their experienced cabin crews.

And there you go. Here are the 3 airlines that we like to use when flying to Amsterdam. Lufthansa, Emirates, Turkish Airlines, China Airlines are among others but not in the top three.

Have you tried any of the airlines mentioned? How was your experience? We'd love to hear!


  1. may someday i'll have the chance to board this flights as well.

  2. It was my first time travelling to the Netherlands and KLM has the best accommodation. January 9 when I was supposed to go back Philippines but my flight was cancelled due to some technical problems of the aircraft. But they will be giving a nice hotel accommodation while waiting for the rebooked flight. Since my son wanted me to go back to Haarlem, then I decided not go to that hotel. Then January 11 was my flight again but suddenly when we are about to take off in Taiwan, the captain announced that flight will be cancelled due to the ash falls of the eruption of Taal volcano. And then we were brought to Monarch hotel where we stayed for 2 days. Some stayed more than 2 days while waiting for their rebooked flight....it was such a nice experience flying with KLM.
