Home to leading international companies such as Boeing, Bombardier, Lockheed Martin, GE Aviation, Mitsubishi Aircraft and CAE, the Netherlands’ aerospace industry is thriving. Holland’s world-class logistics infrastructure, strategic location, competitive tax structure and highly trained, English-speaking workforce provide an ideal environment for aerospace operations—whether its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), spare parts logistics, manufacturing, training facilities or office functions.
Europe’s fourth largest airport by passengers flown and third largest by cargo volume, Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam is the second best-connected airport on earth. That makes it a perfect logistics hub, hosting numerous specialized third-party logistics providers with dedicated aerospace verticals, including Aviall, DB Schenker, IJS Global and Wencor.
Major aerospace companies, including VTOC Fokker, CAE and FlightSafety International, have set up their training facilities in the Netherlands, fueling Holland’s dedicated, flexible and multilingual workforce.
