Cheap plane tickets have led to the development of a ‘red light district’ in the departure areas of Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, with working girls plying their trade in the toilets and transit hotels, airport staff have told the Telegraaf.
The women fly in, pick up transfer passengers or those with delayed flights, and sometimes fly back the same day, the paper says.
Immigration police say they can only intervene if a formal complaint has been made, which has not yet happened.
The airport has two hotels behind customs and security lines, which offer cheap daily room hire rates for passengers who want to rest or wash during the day, the paper points out.
