Royal Schiphol Group (RSG) is allowed to pass on any costs of aviation-related activities to airlines. Using the cost allocation system, RSG must show how it allocates these costs to aviation-related activities. After 2021, the current cost allocation system will no longer be valid. That is why RSG on March 8, 2021, submitted a new system for the 2022-2024 period to the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM).
On April 2, 2021, ACM published for public consultation the draft decision and the cost allocation system of Schiphol for 2022-2024. ACM has only received an opinion from Dutch airline KLM. ACM has submitted this opinion to RSG. RSG has proposed to adjust the cost allocation system with regard to the allocation of costs for the use of Schiphol Plaza by employees that work at the airport. ACM backs this proposal. With regard to the rest of the decision, KLM’s opinion did not give ACM any reason for other adjustments to the cost allocation system.
As a result, ACM has approved the adjusted cost allocation system of Schiphol for the 2022-2024 period.
