CargoForwarder has taken a closer look at the issues in Schiphol and freighter slots – and is appears there is some bad news. The ‘local rule’ – a plan to boost the rights of cargo aircraft operators – looks set to be delayed yet again. Air Cargo Netherlands (ACN) acknowledges it won’t be sorted for the summer schedule and added: “In a way, freight carriers have to blame themselves, as some cargo airlines tend to take a more flexible approach to their schedules.

They have a preference but no specific ties to AMS and just want to fly to Europe.” Part 1 is here and part 2 here, which looks at why Schiphol should pursue a new cargo policy.
