All work is taking place while the airport remains in operation around the clock as usual. There will continue to be sufficient capacity and space for airlines and travellers throughout the duration of the work. This is in part due to the fact that Schiphol is implementing the projects in a particular order.

Renovation of Departure Hall 1 & Lounge 1

The construction work in Departure Hall 1 is well under way. The work includes introducing a mezzanine floor in Departure Hall 1, creating more space for security, check-in and waiting areas. In addition to the extra security lanes that are to be installed in Departure Hall 1, Schiphol will be putting in a temporary security filter on Cockpitplein. This is set to be ready by the end of 2019 and can remain in use until the new terminal is opened. Completion of the renovation work is scheduled for mid-2020 for Departure Hall 1 and for the start of 2022 for Lounge 1.

The new terminal

The new terminal will be situated partly where temporary Departure Hall 1A is currently located. Construction on the new terminal will only commence once the temporary departure hall has been completely dismantled. The dismantling of temporary Departure Hall 1A (set to finish by the end of 2020) will commence once the renovation work on Departure Hall 1 is complete.

Tendering process for the new terminal

The construction work for the new terminal was put out to tender last July. The contract will be awarded in spring 2020, when we will announce the construction firm/consortium with which Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will be working.
