Expected growth Schiphol: 60 million travellers in 2016
In 2015 a record number of over 58.2 million passengers travelled via Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, representing an increase of 6.0% over 2014. Schiphol Group's regional airports similarly registered growth.
In 2015 Eindhoven Airport served 4.3 million passengers, up 10.0% on 2014, while Rotterdam The Hague Airport welcomed 1.7 million passengers, up 0.3% on 2014. The number of air transport movements also increased in 2015 at all the airports in the group.
At 322, in 2015 the number of destinations remained virtually the same as the 2014 figure.
Jos Nijhuis, President & CEO Schiphol Group: 'We have witnessed growth at all our airports again in 2015. In 2016, the year of our centenary, we expect to welcome 60 million travellers at Schiphol. This year will also see the finalisation of renovations in the terminal, allowing us once again to offer travellers the level of experience they may expect from Europe's Preferred Airport.
In view of the sustained growth and international competition we will continue to make substantial investments in capacity and accessibility - also at our regional airports. Those investments will enable us to remain the preferred airport for travellers, airlines and logistics services providers.'
