Schiphol airport to cut hundreds of jobs

Schiphol airport is planning to reduce its workforce by up to 25% over the coming two years, the organisation said in a statement on Wednesday.

The company, which also operates airports in Rotterdam, Lelystad and Eindhoven, has a workforce of 2,200.
The airport blames the downturn in passenger numbers and increasing international competition for the job losses.
Schiphol has already announced that it plans to delay some investments.
And when new director Jos Nijhuis took over the reigns on January 2, he warned that passenger numbers would go down by between 6% and 10% this year and that there will be a decline in freight transport.
