Pursuant to Article 19 (3) of Regulation (EC) No 1008/2008 of the European Parliament and the Council of 24 September 2008 on common rules for the operation of air services in the Community (OJ L 293, 31.10.2008, p. 3.), on 12 July 2018 the Commission received notification from The Netherlands of a draft Decree establishing the Dutch traffic distribution rule between Schiphol airport and Lelystad airport.

The proposed rules, when adopted and entered into force, will distribute traffic between Schiphol and Lelystad Airport on the following basis:

Summarised, transfer flights are flights to destinations that at Schiphol Airport have an average transfer rate of at least 10%. Point-to-point-flights are flights to destinations that at Schiphol Airport have an average transfer rate of less than 10%.

The destinations that meet these criteria are specified in annexes:
