Development of the new pier and terminal on airside – where the planes land and take-off – is going well. We are also pushing the existing piers a little to make room for additional aircraft parking positions, which requires a lot of effort. Everything must change to realise these developments, including carriageways, stations, taxiways and terminals.
Space for more travellers and planes
The airside plans have tight planning, which means that the works will be visible to travellers and people who work at Schiphol. That includes traffic diversions, construction work and moved car park buildings. Airside staff at Schiphol may have to take alternate routes. We will create additional space for aircraft and travellers and try to limit any inconvenience as much as possible.
These are our plans
Who it affects
Schiphol is sprucing up for the future. A new pier and terminal will be built, as well as changes made to the station, infrastructure and parking facilities. These changes will be made to accommodate traveller and flight growth.
What will change
A new pier and terminal will be built at Schiphol, so everyone can experience smoother travel. There is a lot going on – new car parks, a temporary departure hall, other routes, new signage and more.
Where it will change
The new pier and terminal will be located to the south of Schiphol Plaza, in the location currently occupied by the P2 car park. It will be about 150,000 sq-m in size.
When it will happen
The new pier will be ready by 2019 and the terminal by 2023. Many preparations are currently underway. For example, a logistics hub will be created and changes made on 1 October, when the P2 car park permanently closes.
