Amsterdam Lelystad Airport NL
After years of preparation for an expansion of Schiphol Airport, an expansion of the existing Lelystad Airport has finally been decided. The history of Lelystad Airport starts with the draining of the Flevopolder. Airplanes were needed and various grass tracks were laid out. These jobs were not efficient enough in the long run and in the year 1973 plans were made for a paved track. At that time, this airport officially became Lelystad Airport. The intended business function of Lelystad Airport was not achieved, despite an extended runway and takeover by Schiphol Group from Amsterdam.
