Bataviahaven Lelystad ready for River Cruise Vessels

Lelystad - The needed facilities for the growing number of river cruises that visit the Bataviahaven of Lelystad, will be realized before the first of October this year. This applies to the construction of additional and appropriate electricity facilities and the extension of the bulk water facilities to three connections. This means that the Bataviahaven Lelystad will be ready before the winter season, so that cruise vessels can be hosted in the harbor during the winter.

The continuing growth of the river cruises industry has a positive effect on the Bataviahaven in Lelystad. This year the growth in the number of landings at Bataviahaven is robust and more shipping companies use the Bataviahaven Lelystad. Not only for short stops but also for ships that moor for a shorter or longer time, for example for the preparation of new ships coming into service. The choice for this port has everything to do with the spacious mooring possibilities, the central location in the Netherlands near Amsterdam and the good accessibility of the ships for passengers and freight cars. Also the opening, starting from April 2018, of the new Airport (Amsterdam-Lelystad Airport) has drawn the attention of the companies who operates these vessels. The Airport will have as from that date an extended runway and a new airport building which makes the airport suitable for larger aircraft and larger numbers of passengers. For the river cruises this means that European passengers can fly directly to Lelystad Airport instead of Schiphol. The airport is only 10-15 minutes by car from the City’s biggest port, Bataviahaven Lelystad.
