Rotterdam Airport in a nutshell
Rotterdam Airport was originally called Zestienhoven Airport. It was opened in 1956 and initially it was very successful. In the 1970's, things went downhill and there was talk of closing the airport. The tide turned with the economic revival in the 1990's and a decision was made to maintain the airport at its current location near Rotterdam. It now is an important regional airport; Rotterdam Airport processes annually over a million passengers. There is no metro or train connection, but the airport is easy to reach by car or bus. There are a number of hotels near the airport, the closest one immediate in front of the entrance.
At the airport there is a shop that specialises in perfume and typically Dutch souvenirs. If you want to get a bite to eat, there are two restaurants at the ground floor and at the first floor.
There are ATM machines, and GWK Travelex has an office in Rotterdam Airport where you can exchange money. There is wireless Internet available throughout the airport. In addition, the airport is very accessible to disabled people.
In the aviation industry Rotterdam Airport is indicated by the abbreviations RTM (IATA airport code) and EHRD (ICAO airport code).
