Schiphol Airport charges attacked by EasyJet
Budget airline EasyJet has lodged a complaint about the increased charges Schiphol is imposing on its passengers.14 August 2008
THE NETHERLANDS - Low-cost airline EasyJet has lodged a complaint with the Netherlands Competition Authority about Amsterdam's Schiphol airport.
The British airline says Schiphol is discriminating against passengers travelling from the Netherlands. They will soon be paying twice as much in airport charges as passengers who merely stopover at Amsterdam.
On 1 November, Schiphol's security charge will be raised by 61 percent, while its passenger charge will go up by 13 percent. The increases will make Schiphol Europe's most expensive airport.
