Property for operating activities concerns the management and operation of areas in the terminal, the assets under construction or development of the terminal, Schiphol Group head office and some first-line-premises in locations that will be used operationally in the future.
The terminal of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol contains office and business premises, desks and lounges that are leased to airlines and airport related companies. The business area Real Estate manages and operates these areas.
The occupancy levels of these areas at Schiphol were virtually stable throughout the year with a final occupancy rate of 91.4 at the end of 2012. Rent levels for these areas are also under pressure.
