Schiphol and KLM beg The Hague for action
THE HAGUE - Schiphol and KLM are begging politicians to take action to save the Dutch aviation sector of a possible demise. “Schiphol is extremely important to our economy, so take action.” This was the appeal of Schiphol boss Nijhuis and KLM President & CEO Elbers this morning during a hearing in the House.
“The world is not waiting for us,” says Nijhuis, who is concerned that Schiphol and KLM are becoming victims of the rapidly-increasing international competition.
“Government policy is too fragmented, we need to address things quickly. The cut at the gendarmerie again makes for queues at passport control, the Schiphol tunnel is unreliable and the new noise standards should be approved quickly,” says Nijhuis.
