The Uniform platform was expanded from 5 to 9 parking spaces by Schiphol and its partners. There will be 3 additional parking spots for wide body aircraft; making a total of 12 parking spots. This reduces bottlenecks in parking spot allocation and relieves gate planning, which thereby reduces the risk of on-ground safety incidents. In addition, aircraft will be serviced at the total of 12 parking spots. That means they will cross the Aalsmeerbaan Runway (18L/36R) with less frequency, thereby reducing the risk of runway incursions.
