This expansion plan includes a third runway for the biggest airport in the United Kingdom (UK), indirectly benefiting the country by creating works and increasing airport capacities.

Schiphol Airport


One of the biggest problems caused by noise pollution can be seen in Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport (AMS), one of Europe’s busiest airports.
