Director Lelystad Airport: Jan Eerkens

'Aviation belongs to us all. And that's what makes it so great to work for Royal Schiphol Group. I've been doing that since 2006, gaining a wide range of experience in the commercial field and at the airports themselves. It's a great place to work and I am proud of Schiphol and its participations. Each and every airport is fantastic. My personal mission for Lelystad Airport is to work towards the political decision-making regarding the opening together with all stakeholders, local residents and colleagues. I also want to work on keeping the current General Aviation operation safe and compliant. And to respond to the increasing demand from the Business Aviation market. When I'm not wrapped up in aviation, I enjoy skiing in Switzerland. That's my favourite holiday destination.'
