Director Airport Operations & Aviation Partnerships: Patricia Vitalis

I have been fascinated by flying and logistical processes ever since I was a child. Schiphol is a magical place where everything comes together. The challenge I now face is to work with all our partners in helping the airport's operation to emerge stronger from the coronavirus crisis. Good teamwork is essential, because people and interrelationships make all the difference. Together, we will make sure that travellers can fly all over the world again and we will redefine our mission of 'connecting your world'. I think we're all ready to rediscover the places that right now we can only see on screen. I personally can't wait to go back to my favourite holiday destination, Italy. The passion of the Italian people, the delicious food and fine wines – it's a beautiful country that you never get tired of.
