News: No air traffic to and from the Aalsmeerbaan Runway due to maintenance

Planes will be unable to take-off or land on the Aalsmeerbaan runway from Sunday, 29 September at 23:00 until Sunday, 13 October at 23:00 due to maintenance works. That means that there will be more air traffic than usual on the Buitenveldertbaan runway. The Zwanenburgbaan runway will also be used more often for flights in a southerly direction and the Schiphol-Oostbaan runway may be used for landing aircraft.

The Aalsmeerbaan Runway is getting a light makeover during that 2-week period. The runway will be completely checked, and the asphalt, markings, lighting and the drainage gutters will be renewed if necessary. Maintenance will also be carried out on the lanes in which the aircraft taxi to and from the runways. It is important that these taxiways and all entrances and exits are in good condition in order for taxiing to run smoothly and safely.
