Additional security staff to be deployed at Amsterdam Schiphol

Dutch airport operator Royal Schiphol Group will increase the number of security staff at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in an effort to reduce waiting times at security and tackle peak periods. This is in addition to the existing summer measures and the additional security staff that have already been deployed.

Jos Nijhuis, CEO of Royal Schiphol Group, said, “The employees of the security companies work hard to provide passengers with a safe and relaxed start to their journey, but the assessment shows that even more staff will be required for this than originally accounted for.

“In the end, passengers don’t care who or what they are queuing for. That is a shared responsibility, in which Schiphol should take the lead. Together with the airlines, the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, and other partners, we want to offer people a pleasant beginning and end to their business trip or holiday.”

The operator deployed additional security staff for the May holiday but found that numbers were not always sufficient. In addition to the deployment of more staff, Schiphol is also installing two additional security lanes in Departure Hall 2, which will allow more passengers to go through security simultaneously.
