M&I Forum Seville

This year’s M&I Forum Summer edition was hosted in sunny Seville. Where temperatures normally reach 43°C in this part of Spain, a pleasant 30°C welcomed the 190 suppliers and a total of 400 buyers at the start of the Forum last week.

Being part of the second group, the welcome dinner was hosted in the precious palace-residence Villa Luisa, where Andalusian characteristics met Latin music in presence of international guests. A great start for the event to come! Next morning the group signed up for a networking activity; from a tapas workshop to discovering Seville from different rooftops and from a hammam experience to kayaking in the Guadalquivir river. After a morning of fun activities, the individual meetings between suppliers and buyers started off in the Fibes Convention Center. As usual, the appointments were organized over 2 days and they again were very interesting for us. Learning about new opportunities for our corporate clients and developing the business is significant. On the last night, the famous Plaza de España was the stage for the closing dinner of the event. A night including opera, flamenco dance and great networking to never forget!

Fast-lanes for lightweight travelers!

Amsterdam Schiphol airport, which has seen a 9 percent increase in the number of passengers, recently started a pilot to speed up the security checks during the busy summer months. Passengers who travel without any or limited amount of hand luggage are now able to use a specially dedicated security lane at the airport. Schiphol hopes therewith to reduce the average waiting time. The airport indicated that they are experiencing more and more congestion because the passengers are bringing more and more hand luggage on their trips. If this pilot is a success, Schiphol plans to permanently implement this.

Ryan Air forced to limit routes to/ from the Netherlands

Ryan Air will lose over 400.000 passengers in the coming year. This because Ryan Air did not get the desired number of slots on Eindhoven Airport nor the extra desired slots on Schiphol airport to expand the services there. Ryan Air hopes that the Dutch government can break the monopoly Schiphol has to stimulate the growth and competition between the different airports in the Netherlands. Ryan Air is forced to cancel the routes between Eindhoven Airport and Milan Malpensa (Italy), Trapani (Italy) and Aarhus (Denmark). Besides that, 3 other routes are forced to move from Eindhoven to Weeze Airport (Germany). Another 6 routes will fly less frequent as planned. These forced changes will reduce the flight traffic from Eindhoven airport with 14%.
