Schiphol in discussions with easyJet; move criticised by KLM

KLM CEO, Peter Hartman, criticised Amsterdam Airport Schiphol for entering discussions with easyJet, stating: "This sort of low-cost activity does not belong at Schiphol because no new destinations are added to the network." (DutchNews/Parool, 24-Jun-2010) Schiphol is reportedly in talks with the LCC to establish a base at the airport, with Mr Hartman stating this goes against agreements made between the aviation sector and the government two years ago.
