More travellers than ever are using Schiphol, and it’s important that we respond to the increased demand. We are building a new pier and terminal, while the current piers and car parks are changing too – and much more. If you’re curious about all the construction and renovation projects and what they might mean to you, you can get up to date right here.
The rules meant to protect everyone from the spread of the corona virus impact us all. It also has an impact on building activities at Schiphol. The aviation industry is in decline, and our operation has been scaled back to what we call a ‘Core Schiphol’ scenario. In the news article below you can read about the impact on construction projects and how we deal with safety.
New pier and terminal
Schiphol is freshening up for the future. Right now, we have started the construction of the pier. The new pier, which we hope to have in use by the end of December 2020, will give us a total of 8 gates. The new terminal is currently scheduled for completion by the end of 2023. With these developments, Schiphol will feel more spacious for travellers and airlines than ever before.
- New pier ready by December 2020
- Contractor terminal announced by spring 2020
- Employing 1,200 people
- 150.000 m²
Departures and Lounge 1 refurbishment
Schiphol will become one terminal richer in 2023. However, we want to be able to comfortably accommodate the increased number of travellers well before then. That’s why Departures and Lounge 1 will be re-established, renovated, refurbished and expanded. A mezzanine will offer more space for security, check-in and waiting areas in Departures 1. The lounge will also have some adaptations, including more shops and facilities.
- Building has begun in 2018
- More space and facilities
- Extra mezzanine space
- Final completion by 2022
The Pier Upgrade project will make airport travel smoother than ever before. When we introduced a new central security area a few years ago, it created a lot of space for the 81 gates from piers D-G. These areas are being redesigned for a second time – with comfortable seating areas, work stations, luxury bathrooms, and increased food and recreation options. That means you can enjoy Schiphol even more until the minute you depart.
- Ready in 2021
- 40% complete
- 4 piers
- 81 gates
Other building projects at Schiphol
A lot needs to happen on landside as well. In the coming months, we are laying cables, pipes and other infrastructure.
P1, P3, P4, P5, P6….What is missing here? Exactly: the P2 parking garage. That is because it has been demolished. Instead, we have worked on other, smarter parking solutions.
Some adjustments have been made to the tunnels that lay under Schiphol’s runways.
