Ideal logistics hub
Europe’s fourth largest airport by passengers flown and third largest by cargo volume, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is the second best-connected airport on earth. Amsterdam is your perfect logistics hub, home to numerous specialised third-party logistics providers with a dedicated aerospace vertical: examples are Aviall, DB Schenker, IJS Global and Wencor. Strategically located within the EU, Amsterdam’s dense, high-quality infrastructure offers fast connections to all important markets, regardless which means of transportation you prefer.
A wide range of specialised educational institutions, e.g. VTOC Fokker, has built a strong basis for our dedicated and flexible aerospace labour force. An extra advantage of Dutch skilled aerospace maintenance staff is that they’re multilingual. Due to this and other factors, many aerospace companies such as CAE and FlightSafety International have set up their training facilities here.
