Around 20,000 people work on the platform of Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands. On a daily basis these ground crews are exposed to the exhaust fumes of airplanes and diesel vehicles. Zembla gets hold of a list that circulates amongst the airport staff in which record is kept of employees that have become ill or that have died because of their illness. Internal documents of KLM and the Dutch airport Schiphol show that they have known about the health hazards of airplane emissions for at least 15 years, but have not taken the necessary steps to protect people’s health.
