Perform today, create tomorrow

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol needs additional space in order to accommodate and facilitate the growth in both the number of passengers and air transport movements. With the development of a new pier and terminal, Schiphol is investing in the capacity and quality of Mainport Schiphol, as well as strengthening the airport's international competitive position. In order to build the pier and terminal, the infrastructure of access roads and parking facilities will need to be modified drastically.

At the same time, Schiphol is working hard to improve accessibility to the airport through investments in the public transport hub, Schiphol Plaza and the Jan Dellaertplein.

These infrastructure-related projects are being managed on an integral basis as part of the ‘Perform today, create tomorrow’ investment programme.
