This paper describes the opportunities for substitution between air travel from Amsterdam Airport and the high-speed train to main destinations in Europe. First, the relevant factors influencing the substitution from airplane to high-speed train are discussed. Second, the present situation and future trends in supply and demand in the railway and air markets are described. Finally, an estimate of the potential substitution in 2020, based on available sources, is presented on the routes Amsterdam-Brussels, Amsterdam-Paris and Amsterdam-London.
