About us

LVNL has been a crucial link in the Dutch airspace system for nearly a hundred years. We work around the clock to ensure safe, efficient, and eco-conscious handling of air traffic at airports and in the skies. 


The skies above the Netherlands are among the busiest and most complex in the world. Despite its small home market, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is an important player in Europe and

globally in terms of number of flights and passengers as well as cargo volume. Each and every day the huge flow of incoming and outgoing aircraft is safely and effectively routed to and from Schiphol and the regional airports in the Netherlands. This means that we must always be ready and able to deliver at the highest level. This also presents challenges for our organisation, for example in terms of finding and training the most talented people and optimising our systems.



Our role is a special one. Not only are we a part of a complex aviation chain in an ever-changing sector with a wide range of different interests, but we also occupy a unique position at the interface of society, airlines, and partners. We use our expertise to connect these worlds and together make it possible for the aviation industry to develop in a sustainable way. It is the ambition of LVNL to be the best air traffic control organisation in the world when it comes to safety, people, and the reliable delivery of services. Read more about our role and core values.


We always ensure the safety of our operations and reliable delivery of services and use our expertise to provide value for customers, partners, and society at large. We are embedding and strengthening our role in society while supporting our organisation in the realisation of our objectives.



We have been working non-stop for nearly a century to keep the airspace safe. This is an important and responsible task. Together with a team of specialists ranging from ICT professionals, developers and system specialists to mechanics, engineers and air traffic controllers, we are the force behind the ever-changing world of aviation. We are Team LVNL. We work together, are open and result-oriented and take responsibility. Everyone in the team is essential to achieving our joint mission: Working together to enable aviation! Come and join Team LVNL.
