The mission of the Airport Domain is to develop and deploy open digital standards for the airport environment. The unification of digital airport standards will enable more efficient working from the common supply chain and create a uniform approach for the industry.

Steering Committee

The steering committee is led by a representative of the Asset Management department at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.  The steering committee is responsible for policy and decisions on standards development in airport asset management, approval of results, raising sponsorship income,  establishing projects and project leads, establishing working groups to address identified work items, and oversight management of the Airport Domain and its working groups and projects to ensure the buildingSMART Process is followed.
