Schiphol as a neighbour: Living near the airport

Having an international airport as a neighbour has its advantages, but at Schiphol we are fully aware that it can also cause problems. We work hard to make sure you can enjoy living and working near the airport; we do our best to limit inconvenience, ensure safety and keep a close eye on air quality. If you have any questions about how we do this, please contact the Local Community Contact Centre Schiphol (BAS).
