Schiphol Airport had to find innovative ways to accommodate larger aircraft with more seats at the existing aircraft stands, which were tight for space. Deerns explored the possibilities and created a solution by upgrading part of the gate buildings, making it easier and faster to connect two instead of one jet bridge per aircraft. The entire concept was simulated for 30 types of aircraft, validated for safety, efficiency and connecting to the fuel hydrants and other platform installations, which quickly made it possible to handle more passengers per flight without increasing the number of flights.
