About us

In 2023, Lelystad Airport is celebrating its 50th anniversary and ready to become the Netherlands’ new airport for holiday travellers.

Our journey goes back to 1973 when we set foot on a grass runway just outside Lelystad. Pilots landed at Lelystad Airport via ‘Hotel Bravo’.
Since 1993, we have been part of Royal Schiphol Group. With an average of 80,000 air transport movements a year, we are the largest General Aviation airport in the Netherlands.

And we have the ambition to make Lelystad Airport a new departure point for holiday travellers. Fly to your holiday destination within Europe and other destinations around the Mediterranean from Lelystad Airport.

Lelystad Airport’s expansion will provide an economic boost to the region. The airport attracts companies, creates local and regional employment and strengthens the business climate.

N.V. Luchthaven Lelystad is the operator of Lelystad Airport and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Schiphol Nederland B.V.
N.V. Luchthaven Lelystad trades under the name Lelystad Airport.
