Schiphol takes prizes at 2019 World Routes Awards


Amsterdam Airport Schiphol took home multiple prizes at the 2019 World Routes Awards, held this year in Adelaide, Australia. Colleague Wilco Sweijen won the prestigious Individual Leadership award. Schiphol took second place in the Over 50 Million Passengers category with a ‘Highly Commended’ designation.

The World Routes Awards are the most prestigious distinctions in the aviation industry. Being selected for the Individual Leadership Award spotlights Wilco's dedication on behalf of his career as route developer for Schiphol in an international environment. In designating Schiphol as ‘Highly Commended’, the airlines are expressing their appreciation for the exceptional marketing support they have received from Schiphol in the past year. For example supporting to create awareness for an airline or route.

Schiphol bested with the "Highly Commended" award Dubai International Airport, Hong Kong International Airport and Istanbul Airport in the Over 50 Million Passengers category. Top honours in the category went to Singapore Changi Airport, with Schiphol taking an admirable second place and receiving fine recognition from the airlines as well. Brisbane Airport, an airport in which Royal Schiphol Group owns an interest, also won an award in the category of 20 to 50 Million Passengers.


We are extremely proud of the awards we have won. This is a wonderful recognition from our clients for all the work we do. It's fantastic to cooperate with 108 airlines all around the world, and to achieve success together.
