A strong September, up 3.9% at 130,631 tons, brought the total for the first nine months of 2013 to 1,120,389 tonnes – a growth of 1.6% on 2012. Asia continued in the top slot, with N. America retaining second position. Schiphol tonnages have shown growth in 5 out of 9 months this year.

Freighter movements continued to show a slight decline, down 0.2% to 1,334 in September, and 1.4% below 2012, at 11,447 for the year to date.

Says Schiphol’s Senior VP Cargo, Enno Osinga: “These are pleasing figures. The general trend is positive. This is a strong performance for a major European gateway which reflects the determined efforts of the airlines, our own team and the logistics community to continue optimizing service standards and driving growth at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.”
