From Altitude to Attitude: Creating resilient airports with a future!
The aviation sector needs new concepts to reconcile passenger growth with planetary boundaries on a local, global en universal level. Its legacy as an innovative leading airport, its capacity and its culture enable Schiphol to lead the change towards a future-proof aviation industry. I envision Schiphol as an airport that will be able to grow by transformation and change seamlessly, adding value to its business and its environment. Not wasting resources, but eliminating waste and operating energy-positive. Means to enable this are a temporary, flexible and modular set-up of its infrastructure, circular asset-management, and performance based business models. For its passengers Schiphol will offer a transformational and inspiring journey, which demonstrates that care for travellers can go hand in hand with care for the fundamental principles which make life possible. Schiphol can do this by thinking ahead, using a visionary mindset, improving skills and setting concrete examples. From Altitude to Attitude.
