Flights to Maastricht

With its elegant squares, fine wines, shopping streets and exceptional museums, the Dutch city of Maastricht is an excellent city break destination. There are no direct flights to Maastricht from the UK, but Amsterdam Schiphol, Eindhoven, Cologne and Brussels aren't far away, so organising trips should be easy.

Which is the main airport in Maastricht?

Maastricht-Aachen Airport does not cater for flights from UK cities. However, the 328 FlixBus service from Brussels Airport only takes one hour 35 minutes, while FlixBus also runs coaches from Cologne Airport, which take one hour 45 minutes. Intercity trains also take two hours to travel from Amsterdam, so there are plenty of conveniently situated airports.

Which airlines offer flights to Maastricht?

Travellers can't fly directly from UK airports to Maastricht, but plenty of airlines provide connections to nearby airports. British Airways, Ryanair and Eurowings all fly into Cologne-Bonn, while Brussels Airlines offers plenty of connections to the Belgian capital. KLM flies into Amsterdam and Ryanair fly into Eindhoven.

Why travel by plane to Maastricht?

Even though it's not possible to book direct flights to Maastricht, flying remains the most convenient option from the UK. Flight times to airports in Cologne, Amsterdam or Brussels will be around one hour, and decent connections mean that the overall journey time from the UK to Maastricht rarely exceeds four hours. That's much quicker than taking Eurostar services to Brussels and changing, or taking buses from London. Moreover, low-cost air fares are always available, making air travel cheaper than train journeys, leaving travellers with a little more money to help them enjoy their time in Maastricht.

Before you travel to Maastricht by plane - good to know!

Wherever travellers fly into, it makes sense to plan out transfers to ensure that all of the connections run smoothly. When they get to Maastricht itself, visitors will find that getting around won't be tough. The Stadsbus system covers all of the city, and with rechargeable OV cards, it's a very cost-effective transit option. Visitors won't lack for things to do, either.  The Bonnefantenmuseum hosts a superb collection of Old Masters, the Derlon Museum shows off finds from the Roman Maastricht and dinosaur reconstructions in the Natuurhistorisch Museum will delight younger visitors. Even better, visitors can book tours of the winding Saint Pietersberg Caves, which also feature relaxing river cruises. And when that's done, head to Tongersestraat - where the city's student population ensures a lively atmosphere.

How to Get to Rotterdam by Plane

Flights from London and most other European capitals go to Rotterdam's The Hague Airport just north of the city. Little more than 5 kilometres from the city, Rotterdam is easily accessed by taxi and public transport. The RET shuttle bus takes about 20 minutes to reach metro station Meijersplein, and bus 33 departs regularly from the airport o Rotterdam Centraal Station, with a journey time of around 25 minutes.


Rotterdam boasts some stunning architecture, including some historic churches dating back to the Middle Ages, such as the Grote of Sint Laurenskerk, which offers a variety of cultural events throughout the year. The city also offers a wide range of fascinating museums. From the incredible art collections housed in the R Chabot Museum and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen to the impressive history showcased in the Maritime Museum and the quaint Museum of Chess, the museums of Rotterdam have something for every taste.

In recent years, the city has also developed a vibrant party scene, and is considered one of the clubbing hot spots in Europe.
