Schools & education

For children between the ages of 4 and 12, we have developed a special educational programme for elementary education. We receive more than 7,000 children annually with this programme. In addition, we receive children during school holidays with promotions of, for example, Jeugdvakantiepaspoort (Youth holiday passport), Rotterdampas (Rotterdam pass) and the Kinderburendagen (Children’s neighbour days).


High flyers scavenger hunt

Children in bright yellow waistcoats who come along to help for a morning are now a familiar sight at Rotterdam The Hague Airport. Children from years 1-4, under the guidance of their teacher or a parent, do the High flyers scavenger hunt developed especially for them. The children head out with a pilot’s case filled with assignments.

The children may sit in the seat of a ground host, copy the aircraft marshallers on the panoramic terrace and view x-rays of suitcases. They stand on the platform where the aircraft arrive and depart. Finally, they recover from a busy morning with a colouring picture and a glass of lemonade in the De Horizon restaurant.

Target group:

Elementary schools – years 1–4


Monday and Tuesday from 09:30 to 11:15 (incl. break).
Not during school holidays.


The scavenger hunt will be introduced by an employee of the airport. Then the children head out with their own guides (at least 5).


  • Welcome
  • The children will be divided into five groups, and they all get a real ‘safety jacket’.
  • They receive a scavenger hunt book and pencils.
  • The guide for each group gets a pilot’s case, in which the materials for the scavenger hunt can be found.
  • The scavenger hunt consists of seven activities.
  • Halfway through the scavenger hunt, there is a planned break with lemonade and a colouring picture.


Enrolment for promotions is only possible as an individual visitor and not as a group. Outside the educational programmes and promotions, we can unfortunately not receive any groups due to the complicated operational process of our airport.
