Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has once again been ranked in the top two major European airports (over 1 million tonnes per annum) in this year’s Air Cargo Excellence Survey.
Schiphol’s 2012 score of 104 was an improvement on 2011’s 103 points. And, despite the challenges of running a large airport with significant cargo tonnages and many aircraft movements, Schiphol’s score ranked very well again this year among other majors around the world, and positioned it in the top 35% of all airports surveyed.
This year’s top spot went to Frankfurt, which has consistently been ranked in the top two alongside Schiphol for some years. The results were announced at a ceremony in Kuala Lumpur, where senior representatives of the global air cargo community were gathered for the IATA World Cargo Symposium.
Says Schiphol Cargo Senior VP Enno Osinga: “There are two airports in Europe which consistently score above average (ie over 100), and which every year emerge as the top two in Europe. Schiphol is proud to be one of those two.
“After winning the award for a number of consecutive years, we applaud Frankfurt for the improvements they have made resulting in their number one position this year.”
He continues: “The high scores achieved both by Frankfurt and Schiphol are a reflection of the constant drive for innovation and improvement. We will continue on this track to ensure that we remain one of the top cargo airports in Europe. We thank all those who ranked Schiphol so highly.”
