Ryanair’s CMO Kenny Jacobs tells De Telegraaf (link in Dutch) that expanding their services to Schiphol is part of Ryanair’s strategy to attract more corporate travellers. And it is a smart strategic move: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol enjoys a central location, meaning all crucial business destinations within Europe are within a mere two hours’ flying time. Schiphol now serves more than 300 destinations around the world with almost 100 airlines.

EasyJet recently chose to open a new base at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to gain market share in the corporate segment.
