Passenger Terminal Amsterdam introduces a Crew Pass
René Kouwenberg, director of Passenger Terminal Amsterdam and Janny Alberts, director NV Zeedijk announced the Amsterdam Crew Pass - a card that gives crew members discount in the city's participating shops and restaurants.

Last year, a dedicated area for crew members was opened inside the terminal, with free WiFi, multiple electricity points, lounge chairs, water, etc.

Zeedijk is a popular area for shopping and by giving discounts, the area wants to attract more crew members, Alberts said. A large variety of shops and restaurants can be found in the street, that is located on a 15 minute walk from the terminal.

Zeedijk, in the heart of Chinatown, is a popular area for shopping and many crew on ship's visiting Amsterdam find their way to the district. which has a large variety of shops and restaurants and is located a 15 minute walk from the terminal.'By giving discounts, the area wants to attract more crew members,' Alberts said. There are many Asian shops and restaurants. The text on street signs around the Zeedijk and Nieuwmarkt is in both Dutch and Chinese characters. De Zeedijk area is also called the Nautical Quarter.

The passes will be available in the crew lounge, and visiting ship's staff captains will be informed. Participating shops on the Zeedijk will have special promotions during the season; information on these special deals can also be found in the lounge.

The pass is a next step in recognizing the crew as the city’s ambassadors. 'This first edition is a good start, we have faith that for the next season, more companies will participate in the project.' remarked Kouwenberg.
