As a result of the impact of Covid-19, Amsterdam’s Schiphol introduced a reorganisation programme dubbed Project Reset, to recover from the implications of operating with fewer passengers and flight movements and impacted financial results leading to necessary cuts to costs.
A Schiphol spokesperson says: “Our reorganisation programme, Project Reset, helped us improve as a company and adapt to our much-changed operating environment.
“Project Reset has led us to reprioritise our investment portfolio and operational expenditures and to make structural improvements to mitigate the anticipated longer-term impact of Covid-19 on demand for air travel.”
Significant developments relating to the airport’s sustainability efforts include the implementation of electric ground power units. Regardless of whether a plane is parked at the gate or on the apron, electricity is needed to ensure that the systems on board continue to function.
