Ameland Airport


Ameland Airport (Dutch: Vliegveld Ameland) (ICAO: EHAL) is a small general aviation airport located near the town of Ballum on the island of Ameland in the north of the Netherlands. It is the northernmost airport in the country, located in a region known as the Wadden (Frisian Islands).

The airport has a single short grass runway and a helipad, the latter being mainly used for search and rescue (SAR) flights. A second, shorter runway is planned. Customs services are not available, so no international flights are allowed except for those from other Schengen countries. The airport is used mainly for recreational purposes, so it is not open in winter (October 1 through the last day of March) unless prior arrangements are made.

About 5,500 airplane movements (takeoff or landing) are made at the airport a year.

Ballum (Ameland)

Ballum is a village on the western half of the island of Ameland and the smallest of the total of four villages on the island, one of the West Frisian Islands and part of the Netherlands. It has a population of about 370; this includes about 60 inhabitants of the countryside surrounding the village. The small Ameland Airport is located northwest of Ballum.

It is also the place of the municipal hall of Ameland. This building was built on the location where the castle of the Cammingha's once stood. This old and large castle, formerly the home of the lords of the island, was demolished in 1829.
