Parking tech specialist EasyPark Group has signed a deal to introduce automatic number plate recognition to Schiphol Airport’s P1 Short term car park.

The P1 parking lot at Schiphol Airport has 4,200 parking spaces. As a result of the new partnership between EasyPark Group and Schiphol, visitors can now use automatic number plate recognition for short-term parking and for pick-up and drop-off. Camera parking ensures that the barrier opens automatically upon arrival and departure. When the system recognises a vehicle's registration number and connects to the app, the barrier automatically opens. The parking session stops automatically when leaving the car park, and the payment is handled through the EasyPark app.

“Schiphol is always looking for innovations to enhance customer experience. Hassle-free parking is what Schiphol stands for. For every individual this means something different. For example, some people choose security by reserving a parking space, while others prefer the convenience of showing up without a reservation.

“It is great that through our cooperation with EasyPark Group we can facilitate the latter group in even easier entry and exit via the app,” said Dieme Ketel, manager parking and mobility services at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

EasyPark Group owns and develops the apps EasyPark, PARK NOW, ParkMobile, RingGo and Park-line and operates in over 3,200 cities across more than 20 countries.
