Upgrade Piers D-G

Since the introduction of central security at Schiphol in 2015, security checks at the gates are no longer necessary. This has freed up a lot of space on piers D through G. The perfect opportunity for a redesign.

A varied range of comfortable seating and places to work, modern sanitary facilities, more catering outlets and shops: the upgrade on piers D, E, F and G will make travelling through Schiphol even more enjoyable. The design of the new piers is based on an open space concept. Put simply: a lot of space and light. With sober concrete tones and modern white walls contrasted by black, Schiphol is stepping into the future.

We’re upgrading our piers for the future of Schiphol

Facts & figures

Every year, 18.5 million passengers depart from piers D, E, F and G at Schiphol. On these piers, we plan to redesign 81 gates. Travellers, airlines and everyone working at Schiphol will notice the difference. The pier upgrade will bring comfort for all, whether seated, working or waiting for your flight. It will also provide the necessary luxury sanitary facilities, catering outlets and retail. A total area of 70,600 m2 is being transformed and there will be 1,700 m2 for new commercial outlets.


The project Upgrade Piers takes several years and is executed in phases. We are already well advanced and in the beginning of 2021 we will complete everything.

  • Upgrade pieren en duurzaamheid: een een-tweetje

    Levende bomen, groene wanden met planten, energiezuinige ledverlichting en hergebruik van materialen: het is allemaal te vinden op de pieren D tot en met G. Waarom? We willen de pieren voor passagiers mooier maken, maar ook verantwoordelijk omgaan met de aarde.

  • Strukton and Schiphol work together

    Roland van Rouwendaal is a project manager at Strukton, the construction company that won the tender for the upgrade of piers F and G last year and is hard at work at Schiphol.

  • The Schiphol chair test

    In the coming years, we will be upgrading the non-Schengen piers (D, E, F and G), which also means we will be installing new furniture. Project manager Ankie van der Niet explains how we at Schiphol ‘go shopping’ for new chairs and benches.
