As a central stop in the extensive Dutch and European passenger rail networks, Schiphol draws on passengers from across the region to stand out as one of the world's major international gateways. Passengers at the Netherlands' largest airport can quickly access trains at the station situated directly under the terminals. The Schiphol station offers multiple trains every hour to Amsterdam. It also provides service to Dutch cities across the country like Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen and Eindhoven.

High-speed Thalys trains connect the airport with destinations in Belgium and France. The ability to easily access Schiphol from cities across the country — and in Belgium and France — has made it the region's major airport. This a good model for Chicago, where an extensive, convenient feeder rail network can elevate O'Hare airport to an even higher status — and bring more opportunities to the city.
