Statement Schiphol regarding coronavirus measurements

Schiphol attaches great value to the health of employees and passengers at Schiphol. This is why we are closely monitoring developments with regard to the corona virus and keeping in regular contact with the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) and the Public Health Service (GGD). We are following their advice and also sharing this with colleagues and other parties at the airport, including airlines, handlers and retailers. It is advised to observe general hygiene measures: wash your hands regularly, cough and sneeze in the inside of your elbow and use paper handkerchiefs.

Dutch authorities asked us to inform arriving passengers from China via the information screens in the reclaim baggage halls, to increase alertness and inform them what to do if they get complaints.​
