News: Non-standard use of runways in September due to maintenance work

Kaagbaan Runway is currently undergoing maintenance, and from 23 September Polderbaan Runway, Aalsmeerbaan Runway and a number of taxiways will be out of use. Because of this, air traffic will be directed to different runways than would normally be expected. Below you can see a summary of what this may mean for you.

Maintenance Kaagbaan

Published on: 12 September 2019

Maintenance work on Kaagbaan Runway: 1-15 September

Kaagbaan Runway will be out of use until Sunday, 15 September at 23.00 for maintenance work on the asphalt, track markings and runway lighting. During this period, more air traffic will use Zwanenburgbaan Runway and Aalsmeerbaan Runway in a southerly direction. Buitenveldertbaan Runway will also be used more frequently.

Maintenance work on Polderbaan Runway: 23-29 September

Due to maintenance work, Polderbaan Runway will be out of use for one week: from Monday, 23 September at 6.00 to Sunday, 29 September at 17.00. During this maintenance period, we expect more air traffic to be using Buitenveldertbaan Runway and Zwanenburgbaan Runway in a northerly direction.

Maintenance work on Aalsmeerbaan Runway: 29 September - 13 October

We will begin maintenance work on Aalsmeerbaan Runway on Sunday, 29 September at 23.00, and expect to finish on Sunday, 13 October at 17.00. As a result, more aircraft will be taking off and landing on Buitenveldertbaan Runway and we will be using Zwanenburgbaan Runway in a southerly direction.

Work on taxiways

During the maintenance period mentioned, we will also be working on the taxiways used by aircraft for access to and from the runways. It is important that these taxiways as well as all entrances and exits are in good condition, so that taxiing is safe and efficient. We will therefore be checking these thoroughly and laying new asphalt, repainting markings and replacing lighting where necessary. This maintenance work on the taxiways may mean that we cannot use a particular runway for air traffic.
