Our Vision 2050: Quality of Network

A high-quality network to support Schiphol's important socio-economic role

Maintaining a high-quality network is an essential pillar of our Vision 2050. Air connectivity is key to the economic and broader societal wellbeing of the Randstad region and the wider Netherlands. The COVID-19 pandemic has made Schiphol’s role in this regard even more important: the Dutch economy is highly globalised, and the recovery of our industries requires strong air transport connections.

Our Vision 2050

The cornerstones of our Vision, the three Qualities – Quality of Network, Quality of Life and Quality of Service, rest on a foundation of two key enablers: Safety and a Robust organisation. Together, these fundamental pillars will guide our Group through the challenging period ahead.
