Amsterdam Schiphol–East has opened a new 6,000sqm multi–functional general aviation terminal to cater for the 4,500 private and business flights that the airport handles each year.
Schiphol Real Estate has worked in partnership with VMX Architects to design and develop the new building, which consists of 1,000sqm for the terminal and lounges, 4,000sqm of office space and a further 1,000sqm for parking.
It is a multifunctional building, with both handling areas and offices.
The main users of the terminal are the handling agents KLM, Aviapartner and Jetsupport, while Jet Netherlands, Nayak, Aerdynamics and Solid Air, are already renting 50% of the office space.
Schiphol said that the new facility will replace the current terminal which, after several decades, has become too old to cope with the demand for general aviation operations at the gateway.
