Cheap flights turn Amsterdam Airport into mini red-light district

Date: 3 August 2011

Cheap flights between domestic destinations in Europe have turned Amsterdam's Schipol Airport into a miniature red light district.

Girls are reportedly flying to Amsterdam Airport from other European destinations in order to offer their services to passengers waiting for connecting flights in the international lounge of the airport. A number of the girls are Eastern European, and take the passengers to hotels in the departure lounge which offer short stays in order to allow passengers to freshen up.

It is illegal for this to take place outside of designated areas in Amsterdam, but authorities are reportedly turning a blind eye to it.
