The number of passengers at Schiphol continues to rise. In order to accommodate that growth, we are renovating, updating and extending Departures & Lounge 1. In Departure Hall 1, the addition of a new mezzanine will create more space for security, check-in and waiting areas. In the Lounge to the rear, we are also extending, adapting routes and increasing the range of facilities, such as catering outlets and shops. The result will be even more comfortable travel.
As the number of passengers travelling to and from Schengen countries increases sharply, extra capacity is needed in Departures & Lounge 1. In order to boost check-in and security capacity, while also expanding the lounge, we are redeveloping a smarter layout for Departure Hall 1, Lounge 1 behind it (the retail area) and the adjoining floors. This includes building a mezzanine to accommodate the security process in Departure Hall 1, just like the mezzanine floor in Departure Hall 2. That will free up more space for millions of passengers in the check-in area every year. In Lounge 1, routes will be improved and the range of facilities increased.
The security filter on the new mezzanine in Departure Hall 1 is scheduled to be up and running by mid-2020. We will complete the adaptation and extension of Departure Lounge 1 in early 2022.
Linda Rijlaarsdam from Consumers and Bianca Jansen from Operations are responsible for the design process of the new lounge being planned for Terminal 1. ' By designing it together, we should get the best results for passengers.’
As soon as the last travellers have left Departure Hall 1 in the evening, Nico Bogaard and his colleagues starts their working day. They are building a mezzanine floor for the brand-new security filter.
Together with his colleagues, Perry van Kan is responsible for the new IT and security equipment in the refurbished Departure Hall.
Programme manager Peter Flierman and process developer Janny Postma are taking a different approach to create more space for security and check-in.
Project Manager Erica Esveld is leading the construction of a temporary security filter ... above Schiphol’s Cockpitplein.
Everyone has their own wish list when it comes to the refurbishment of Departures and Lounge 1. Laura Mayoral, developer, is committed to keeping all the stakeholders happy.
