New pier

Lots of live plants, more art and even playgrounds for the kids. We are working hard to open the pier in December 2020 to be used for parking and aircraft handling. Not a moment too soon, as the number of travellers at Schiphol continues to grow. A total of eight new gates are being added. Five for narrow-body aircraft on the north side, and three on the south side for wide-body aircraft.

Facts & figures

Schiphol and the AECOM team – in close collaboration with Cepezed, Imd, dGmR and Copijn – have joined forces to design the pier of the future. According to the latest forecasts, we can look forward to welcoming around 14 million travellers every year. One new pier gives Schiphol eight new gates in two categories: five for narrow-body aircraft on the north side and three for wide-body aircraft on the south side. At a later stage, two extra wide-body gates will be added to the south side of the new pier. In addition to more space for travellers, the three-storey structure will feature more art, more live plants and playgrounds for the kids.

Planning

We are working hard to open the pier in December 2020 to be used for parking and aircraft handling. The foundations are already in place.

  • A quick tidy-up: 38,000 tonnes of rubble

    The old P2 car park was demolished last year to free up the site for the upcoming new terminal. Project Manager Marco Schravesande wanted to find a new purpose for all those slabs of concrete.

  • No pier without permits

    Building the new pier and terminal at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol involves an awful lot of paperwork. Jeanine Mocking is the permits coordinator and ensures that everything is applied for and sorted on time. ‘We’ve already made at least 150 applications.’

  • 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.
