Schiphol’s traveller numbers continue to grow, despite the limited space available for expansion. Nevertheless, many of Schiphol’s locations and systems will be built and expanded to increase capacity in the coming years. That includes a new pier and terminal, which will guarantee a smooth onward trip for travellers and airlines in the future.
Building in progress
The infrastructure surrounding Schiphol must be changed to make room for the new pier and terminal. Preparations have already been made on airside, so that we can create space we need by late 2017. After that, the new pier’s construction can begin. We are also working on landside infrastructure – roads, cables and pipelines must make way for the future of Schiphol.
These are our plans

New terminal built from Schiphol’s DNA
Schiphol’s new terminal will go into service in 2023. The terminal’s design may look deceptively simple and transparent, but its design is very well thought out. KAAN Architecten were commissioned to design the new terminal; Partner Kees Kaan explains their approach.
Schiphol’s plans for the future
We are hard at work preparing Schiphol for the future – under a very tight deadline. Planner Pieter-Bas Siebers has been involved with the construction of the new pier and terminal since day one.
