Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport is considering introducing a fee for people who drop off friends and relatives by car, the Telegraaf said on Tuesday.
‘The available space at the airport is shrinking because the number of passengers keeps going up,’ a spokesman told the paper. Reducing pollution is also a consideration, the spokesman said.
One of the options being considered is the introduction of a charge for ‘kiss and ride’ services, the spokesman said. ‘However, we can’t give any details, we are still thinking about it,’ the paper quoted him as saying.
Insiders told the Telegraaf that a fee of €5 is being considered. Around one in four passengers using the airport are dropped off by car.
