Amsterdam Airport Offers Incentives to Competitors of KLM

The Dutch political system wishes to promote the Dutch airline KLM, but Amsterdam Airport is giving reductions to companies from the Middle East which are competing with KLM.  With each new long-distance destination, companies can receive two years of financial incentives.  Steven Verhagen, chairman of the Pilots Union VNV says that these incentives are opposed to the Dutch political objective whereby Amsterdam Airport is required to make an effort to strengthen KLM.  He added that they weaken the position of their largest and most loyal client on which they depend for revenue.
