Maastricht-Aachen Airport is only a small airport. It is better to fly to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, Brussels Airport Zaventem (Belgium), Köln-Bonn Airport or Dusseldorf Airport (Germany).

Although Maastricht is easily reachable by train from Schiphol, it does not have good, straightforward connections with other airports.

Travelling via other airports than Amsterdam can therefore best be combined with a taxi instead of the train.

By taxi

Upon arriving at any other airport than Schiphol, it is recommended to reach the congress venue by taxi.

For your convenience, we have listed a few recommended taxi companies below that can be booked in advance.

All these taxis are equipped with a credit card system so no cash money will be needed.

Of course, there will also be ample taxis at your disposal at every airport upon arrival but prices may vary substantially.
