Amsterdam’s newly unveiled Airport Park adds a new Green dimension to holidays as Jet2.com announce free suitcases for holidaymakers flying from Leeds Bradford.

Travel-weary holidaymakers have a treat in store for them when touching down in Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport this summer thanks to a gorgeous new outdoor-themed passenger area.

Dubbed Airport Park, flyers will be able to relax in this indoors-made-outdoors environment alongside actual trees and bushes, choose to recharge devices using stationary bicycle charging stations or just sit back and enjoy the ambient surroundings.

The new design is likely to entice holidaymakers to pay a visit to the city and visitors can now make the most of this with Jet2.com’s limited time luggage offer.

Keeping Your Carbon Footprint Down

The design of the airport has been inspired by the city as a whole, which has been praised for its environmentally minded facilities.

The green experience continues as travelers explore Amsterdam, thanks to the city’s increasingly environmentally aware amenities; most strikingly in modes of transport.

One of Amsterdam’s more prominent features is the canals that duck and weave their way across the city, and with most of the main tourist attractions being easily accessible from them it’s often equally as practical as it is ethical to go by water.

Hiring an electric boat is one of the latest ways to get about the canals whilst ensuring that a person's carbon footprint doesn’t get too big for its boots. Due to its near-silent electric engine visitors can take in the sites without the noise of the usual petrol guzzlers.

For those with a bit more time on their hands, water biking across the capital is sure to help work off the stroopwafel and syrup. Though water bikes far from resemble their wheeled name-sakes, these crafts are great fun to pedal along the canal in and can be hired and dropped off at various larger tourist destinations, including The Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum.

Attracting Hundreds of Thousands of Visitors

Whilst there is always the ubiquitous bicycle for the ultimate in environmentally friendly transportation, for longer journeys or heavier loads it seems the e-bike is the latest green innovation to be taken to Amsterdam’s heart. Available to hire from many bike rental stores, these part-pedal, part-electric engine powered bikes prove the perfect solution for those of strong conviction but not-so-strong calf-muscle.

Such innovative moods of transport have been one of the reasons that 100,000 people fly to Amsterdam every year with Jet2.com. Now, and until the end of August, anyone booking a flight to Amsterdam for now and up to November 2012 will receive one free piece of hold baggage.

To receive the free baggage allowance customers need to use the promo code “AMSBAGS” when booking their flight.
