Private jets might no longer land in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport

Private jet owners might no longer be able to land in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, thanks to a new procedure aiming to outlaw the private aircrafts by 2025. 

The airport, known for being notoriously busy, has suggested a series of measures which aim to reduce air traffic and create a ‘quieter, cleaner and better’ system. 

The proposals the airport hopes to implement will come into effect by not later than 2025-26, and would see private jets no longer welcome at Schiphol. 

The airport would also like to have no aircraft landing between midnight and 5am local time or taking off between midnight and 6am local time. This comes with the complete scrapping of plans for a new runway. 

The targeting of private jets comes due to the aircraft causing a disproportionate amount of noise pollution and CO2 emissions per passenger. It was found that private jets produce up to 14 times more pollutants than commercial plans and 50 times more than trains. 

These private jets are often heading towards vacation hot spots like Ibiza in Spain, Cannes in France, or Innsbruck when they leave Schiphol. 

“Sufficient scheduled services are available to the most popular destinations flown to by private jets,” says Schiphol Airport in a statement.

St George’s Square in Valletta was lit up with a beautiful formation of lantern-light, creating three large cross shapes as the islands gear up for Good Friday and Easter Sunday celebrations. 

Valletta Cultural Agency chairman Jason Micallef took to social media to share some stunning aerial images of the square as it was lit. 

The Valletta Cultural Agency too shared more images of the decorations, showing the process of the lighting of the lanterns. The decoration will remain up until next Saturday 8th April, just before the country celebrates Easter. 

The images were shared and liked by locals and others, who commented about the atmosphere created. Some even urged bars and restaurants in the capital city to try and keep volume at a low so as to not ruin the atmosphere created.
