Royal designation for Schiphol Group
In honour of its 100th anniversary, the airport has been granted ‘Royal’ designation
Today, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol was granted ‘Royal’ designation by His Majesty King Willem-Alexander. The ‘Royal’ designation is the crowning glory of the airport's centennial celebrations.
During a festive ceremony attended by many Schiphol employees, the King's Commissioner of North Holland Johan Remkes awarded the ‘Royal’ designation to Schiphol President and CEO Jos Nijhuis on behalf of the airport.
We are very proud that from now on Schiphol may call itself a ”Royal” airport. It is the crowning glory of 100 years of Connecting the Netherlands. The airport's stature is the work of Dutch pioneers – pioneers with daring and vision, who believed in innovation and progress. We plan to continue their work in the next century, although henceforth in “Royal” fashion.
Jos Nijhuis, Schiphol President and CEO
After the ceremony, Jos Nijhuis unveiled the new Schiphol logo.
