Kim: Marketing & Communication projectmanager at Lelystad Airport

50th anniversary

I have organised various events for our anniversary year in 2023.

It is inspiring and dynamic to see how our efforts have led to greater awareness that Lelystad Airport has been open for 50 years and that it is the busiest General Aviation airport in the Netherlands. You hear many people say ‘when will the airport be open?’, but we have been open for 50 years! At such moments, it is extra motivating for me to exclaim even louder what a great airport we are.



The team spirit, or ‘Teamskip’ as we call it, with my colleagues is invaluable to me, we are proud to the bone, laugh a lot and work hard at and around our airport.


Anniversary events

We have organised many great anniversary events during the anniversary year in 2023, for example:

-our kick-off in the passenger terminal

-the unveiling of Lelystad Airport at Madurodam, together with elementary school children

-the school trip of an elemantary school to Aviodrome

-our Sunset Fly-In during ‘De Langste Dag Vliegen’

-our grass logo made possible by De Lelystadse Boer

-the debate at our airport during BNR The Friday Move

-our Lelystad Airport barbecue, together with all employees of the companies at the airport


We have been open for 50 years!

Together with all colleagues, I will continue to strive for growth, innovation and inspire everyone interested in Lelystad Airport.
