Royal Schiphol Group has appointed Dick Benschop as its new chief executive effective May 1, when Jos Nijhuis will retire from his role as head of the airport.

Benschop said: “Schiphol is a special place and wonderful company that I have worked for previously. I am really looking forward to the opportunity of leading one of the most dynamic organisations in the Netherlands.

“Aviation is synonymous with many challenges and opportunities. How can we continue to develop sustainably? How can we find a new balance between nuisance and the economic importance based on trust? Each and every one big issues, which I am looking forward to addressing on behalf of the Netherlands, passengers, airlines and local residents.”
