Augustin de Romanet
Le Président-directeur général Aéroports de Paris
“In order to achieve success in the long term, Schiphol has demonstrated its strong capacity to adapt its hub position to develop fast growing and changing markets. Its connectivity-oriented attitude is definitely a key success factor for its sustainable future. In addition, Schiphol’s achievements in enhancing the quality of the passenger experience have definitely strengthened its competitive position for the future and qualify as a worldwide reference for customer satisfaction.
Another key element in Schiphol’s future is Corporate Responsibility. In particular, this concerns the airport’s sustained efforts to involve all stakeholders in the decision-making process for major development projects, as well as the company’s constant involvement in climate change issues.
2016 marks the eighth anniversary of the HubLink alliance between Schiphol and Aéroports de Paris. With increasing competition between European and Middle-Eastern airports, HubLink is a great opportunity for its two partners to distinguish themselves in this competitive environment by gaining access to best practices, learning from each other’s optimised processes and achieving joint results. In this regard I would like to thank the Schiphol and Aéroports de Paris teams for their involvement in and dedication to the alliance.
I strongly believe that further collaboration and international orientation is a prerequisite to the sustainable future of our airports. In this regard, Schiphol clearly has everything it needs to secure its continuity over the next one hundred years.”
