Amsterdam Schiphol Airport has revealed this week it has room for 483,000 flights next year, as conditional relief is handed to the airport.
Of the 483,000 flights, 293,000 have been allocated for the Summer season, with the rest for the rest of the year.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Amsterdam Schiphol Has Room For 483,000 Flights in 2024…
“This is the outcome of five weeks in which Schiphol had to re-establish the capacity for the summer season after the Minister of I&W announced on 14 November that he was suspending the experimental scheme.”
“He requested that Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (LVNL), the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee and Customs be taken into account during this process.”
“Schiphol then held various talks with airlines. Recent weeks have shown that a limited reduction is needed at peak times to allow for safe and stable operations. Airlines have agreed to help with this.”
Adding to this was Patricia Vitalis, Executive Director Operations at Royal Schiphol Group:
“At the request of the minister, we reviewed what was operationally possible after the experimental scheme was taken off the table.”
“More flights are now possible, but this is only safe and responsible provided we reduce pressure on certain peak hours.”
“The busy peak times require a major effort from the entire aviation sector and the involved government partners.”
“In order to offer travellers a pleasant and safe journey, we really need each other at the airport. We’ve discussed this with each other a lot over the past weeks, and everyone is aware of that. It’s good to see that airlines have committed to helping reduce peak traffic.”
All eyes will be on how 2024 goes for Amsterdam Schiphol.
