Main Entrance in Schiphol Airport- AmsterdamBudget airline Ryanair has been given landing slots for nine flights a day at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport from the winter season, the Telegraaf reports.

The Irish airline said last year it wants to move into more established airports in an effort to attract more business travellers. Easyjet already has a major operation at Schiphol.

The airline has until August 31 to decide if it actually plans to use the slots.
