'When I had the opportunity to work at Schiphol airport, I didn't need to think twice. Schiphol is an international hub. It is relevant to both the Dutch economy and society, and is embedded in our centuries-old tradition of openness and progressiveness. My enthusiasm about Schiphol is shared with external financial parties that lets us draw cost-efficient capital and continue forward. I personally travel from Schiphol and prefer to fly to New York. It is a city that shares the same traditional Amsterdam values.'
