Airport expertise
on all scales

planeground is a professional cooperative of specialist planners and consultants for the aviation industry.

In 2011, two experienced senior aviation consultants, Johan Steenvoorden and Paul Beck, decided to set up a new company in response to a need. A company that could offer a future-oriented approach in planning and consultancy to those in the aviation business.

“So planeground was born,” explains Paul. “A playground where new, innovative ideas are born in a way that is enjoyable and takes the stress out of airport design and development.”

The creative, fresh approach soon attracted other highly skilled professional experts to join this original approach to the 'ground product' of air transportation. Specialising in infrastructural, operational and commercial aspects of airport development, planeground soon gained a reputation for coming up with strong solutions.

Clients range from airports and airlines and their related service providers, to the private sector and governmental institutions involved in air transport development. “Clients love the personal, hands-on approach of planeground,” explains Johan. “They have one contact person and know they are dealing with a highly trustworthy and experienced network.” planeground has been involved in pioneering projects, from improvements in long-standing structures to totally new operations. They have the expertise to deliver projects on all levels and scales. Today planeground is known throughout the aviation industry. With offices in Cologne and Amsterdam, they speak the language of their clients. In 2022, planeground was awarded two of the industry's prizes for International Terminal Design and today continues going from strength to strength.
