Products & Services

At Royal Schiphol Group, we believe data and technology gives our travellers, employees and partners superpowers. We develop tools and services to unlock these powers. With digital products and services, we improve our daily challenges and implement fundamental changes in existing processes.

Smart security odd size baggage

In order to ensure that the security process is 100%-compliant and more efficient, we’ve implemented an IOT (Internet of Things) solution. It’s based on micro movement sensors and camera images.

Turnaround Insights

To streamline the turnaround process and make it more predictable, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has developed Turnaround Insights. This cutting-edge solution uses deep learning technology to translate camera images from the aircraft stands into usable data. This data, which provides insight into the various sub-processes, such as refuelling, pushback, cleaning and catering, will help us predict and prevent delays.

Short Connection Pass

To speed up the process of making a connection of less than an hour, and make it more pleasant, Schiphol has developed the Short Connection Pass. Travellers with a short transfer time can use this pass to get through the controls faster.

Schiphol Today

The Schiphol Today app provides floor managers with real-time information and a clear overview of the work situation for each day. It also features a personalised work package that shows you at a glance what you’ll be doing during your shift. The app offers a clear briefing, insight into your daily to-do list and the other tools you need to help you do your job.

Your personal travel assistant

We want to make sure travellers have personalised travel advice, 24 hours a day, so we base the advice on data and on each traveller’s individual situation and preferences. Because a lot of travellers look up their flight information online, Schiphol shares travel advice on www.schiphol.nl and in the Schiphol app.

The predictive power of Wilbur

On busy days, around 200,000 travellers pass through the airport. Because we know that one of their biggest frustrations on days like that is the long queue at security, Schiphol is always looking for solutions to these issues. Schiphol is exploring smart solutions based on technology and data. One of those smart solutions is Wilbur.

Self Service Units

Available 24 hours a day. Schiphol wants to make sure that travellers in the terminal have 24/7 access to an even better and faster service, 365 days a year, if they run into problems. That’s why we have introduced new information zones with flight information displays, Self Service Units (SSUs) and digital floor plans.

Developer center

Developer Center

Royal Schiphol Group is continuously improving the quality of the service experienced by both travellers and partners. We believe that open data is essential, and that it gives our staff members, our partners and the entire aviation community ‘superpowers’ that enable us to provide an outstanding service. Now our data is ready to be shared in a collection of application programming interfaces (APIs) at the Schiphol Developer Center.
