The introduction of a new tax for passengers who transit via Amsterdam Schiphol Airport will have serious consequences for the network of KLM and the connectivity of The Netherlands as a whole. KLM CEO Marjan Rintel has issued this warning after a majority of the Dutch parliament voted in favor of the new tax that also applies to owners of private jets.

“We are the first and only country in the world where this kind of tax has been proposed. This would mean that only passengers who travel via Schiphol will have to pay extra on top of their air ticket, while others flying via other European airports are exempted from this duty,” Marjan Rintel says in a statement on LinkedIn.
