How are the runways used during peak periods?

By day, in normal weather conditions and with normal runway availability, traffic can be handled on four runways: the Polder runway, the Zwanenburg runway, the Aalsmeer runway and the Kaag runway. At peak landing times, two runways are used for incoming traffic and one for departing aircraft, while at peak take-off times, two runways are used for take-offs and one for landings. With the present five-runway system, the Buitenveldert runway is used less intensively than with the former four-runway system.
