Amsterdam Schiphol Zwanenburgbaan runway (18C-36C) unavailable for one week due to annual maintenance


From Monday 26 September to Sunday 2 October, maintenance works are being carried out on the Zwanenburgbaan Runway (18C-36C). During this period of works, the runway is not available for air traffic. The Buitenveldertbaan Runway (09-27) will be used more frequently as a secondary runway while the maintenance is going on. The Schiphol-Oostbaan (04-22) may also be used more often as a secondary runway for landing. A small proportion of flights will be moved to the Kaagbaan Runway (06-24).

Annual maintenance is carried out on all the runways so that they remain in good condition. The Zwanenburgbaan Runway will be undergoing restorative works on the asphalt and markings. In addition, the cabling and electrics will be checked, lights cleaned or repaired, and the grass around the runway cut. The rainwater drainage system will also be inspected, flushed out and repaired where necessary. In addition, preparatory work for the major maintenance scheduled in 2023, such as preliminary inspections and measurements, will be carried out. These works are being carried out in collaboration with construction company Heijmans.
