Schiphol lets you give a Big Wave Goodbye!31 August 2013, by Elzi Lewis

In case that isn't enough, the footage will also be displayed on the big screens at Schipol's departure gates!

To try it for yourself, simply fill in the traveller's flight details on the website and upload your own personalised message of love.
