HV Considers Taking AMS To Court Over Pier Access

Wed May 31, 2006 7:53 pm

Transavia considers taking Schiphol to court over the lowing handling charges that the airport charges LCC's that use the new LCC pier. Charges are 20% lower, and Tranavia would like to use the LCC pier too for cost recution purposes. Schiphol argues that Transavia with its large fleet would saturate the LCC pier and refuses Transavia access it. Transavia says this is giving other LCC's (16 at the moment) an unfair advantage and is considering taking legal steps against the airport. The 20% reduction would save Transavia €2m annually.

I agree with AMS mangment on this one. If they let Transavia get it then other big airlines will want to follow suite. The whole point is by offering less services to the LCC's the get to pay less.
The only valid opinions are those based in facts

HV is a LCC, but because of limited stands at pier H, they cannot use it as they have too many aircraft, which puts them at a disadvatage against other LCC's (not based at AMS) That's the whole point, they REALLY want to use the pier, but can't. So I can imagine the complaint.

As Kappel said, HV actually is an LCC. So their wish is legitimate...

Is there room for a second LCC pier at AMS?
