Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is making preparations for an investment of €350 million to invest in central security to take away the controls from the gate in the non schengen area. Arrivals and transfer pax. from "lower security countries" will now be led through a new second floor on the E, F and G piers, while those from "high security countries" arrive directly in the piers and lounges, as usual. Also departures from T2 and 3 will undergo security on a new level in the departure hall.

Do we know which countries' originating passengers will be exempt from the security control of transfer passengers? Only the US is mentioned in the film. Ireland, UK and Canada must fall into this categorie as well. Which other countries though?

If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much.

I am sure the UK and Ireland do, so they can continue being handled from D pier. Canada and some Asian countries have high security as well I assume.

They said countries that don't have the same level of security as Schipol will have to go through security again basically.

So are they going to add on to the top of the terminal for those to go through security again? or are there existing buildings?

My reading of it is that another level will be added on top of Piers E, F and G, similar to what was built atop Pier D for schengen compliance.

As I mentioned and as shown at the end of the film; a new passenger level will be built on top of the piers. The film shows the new area's in yellow. All gates will also have gatehouses where pax. are divided either upstairs or downstairs when entering Schiphol. If one arrives or transfers from i.e. Nairobi (low security), you pass through the new upper level towards arrivals or (on the same level) you pass security. Then you go downstairs to the current lounge and piers. Pax from i.e. the US(high security) go directly to the pier and lounges as the security check is unnessecary. Now pax. have security checks at the gate where you are "locked in a cage" after the check. In the new situation pax. don't need to stay in the gatearea before boarding but can move freely.

It's the first stage of masterplan 2025 which has yet to be presented. This project is expected to be completed in 2015. Additional piers and terminal will be realised in the next stage.

I like this - the airport can eventually save security costs as they won't have to do this at every single gate (and they won't need to clear the gates before they open them up anymore either). Passengers win because fewer will have to be screened again, and they will no longer be forced into "holding pens" with no facilities an hour before they board. Airport merchants win because pax can now take drinks/food onboard the aircraft without having to pass security.

I would imagine UK, Ireland, US, Canada, Israel, and maybe Singapore/Japan/Hong Kong.

It looks like a smaller level than on the D-pier. The 2nd floor on the D-pier is as big as the first floor and a fully operational pier, to be able to use it for Schengen / Non-Schengen according to demand. Both floors have all facilities.

The additional level on E, F and G is not much more than a pathway towards security.

This will also mean that the non-Schengen part of the D-pier will only be used for 'safe' arrivals. So most likely all UK / Ireland flights and maybe some USA.

I wonder if Turkey is considered safe?

I think most non-schengen states except for US, UK etc are deemed unsafe. Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm rather sure that Turkey is deemed unsafe, though.
