Schiphol points out that he’s well prepared for the crowds because of the fall holiday that begins on Saturday. The airport still has a shortage of eight hundred security guards, but says it is doing its best to prevent very long queues from forming.

“We expect to process around 57,000 departing passengers per day, just as in recent weeks, and that has gone well during that time. We also invite passengers to come to the airport well prepared. So keep an eye on the flight information and come to Schiphol four hours in advance,” he says. speaker.

According to FNV, travelers should take into account the very long queues in Schiphol during the fall holidays. The union notes the staffing shortage that has not yet been resolved, while it will become even more crowded at the airport from Saturday. It is also possible that the raging coronavirus will cause the loss of more employees.

Schiphol says she is working hard to attract new security officers. For example, there is a new package of working conditions that provide for a structural increase in wages of 2.50 euros per hour and better vacations and rest areas. “We are working with security companies on a recruitment drive to attract new employees,” a company spokesperson said.
