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. Schiphol provides and facilitates the connectivity that is vital for an open economy such as the Netherlands. The COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted Schiphol Group’s key role in this broader ecosystem: strong airport connections are needed to support the ongoing economic recovery that began to take shape in 2021.
