Schiphol cheapest airport in Western Europe.
Schiphol is cheaper than regular airlines argue, BNR writes today. The airport is even cheaper than its main competitors in Western Europe, according to research by SEO Economic Research that the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment have performed annually. The study calculated as per airport what airlines must pay including airport charges and government taxes. Schiphol last year became thirty percent cheaper for airlines. This airport is just as cheap as Dubai. Worldwide, only the airport in Istanbul is cheaper than Schiphol.
Secretary Sharon Dijksma says to be happy with the current rates. ,,I think really, really good news, especially for all those airlines that use the airport. And there is often criticism, but in this case is so unfair.” Among other things, KLM and Easyjet complained earlier that they have to pay high fares to fly from Schiphol. Jos Nijhuis, the CEO of the airport, said 18 months ago to lower the rates.
