Where can I join?



The message was meant for forum members to start some action instead of only filling this forum with (emotional) messages
against the 'Alliance'.

But I understand his question as well, because I don't know too. Is there such an alliance? I would also consider to join such proponents group.

Is MAA already able to effectively use the full stretch of the runway? Or are they awaiting possible procedures from opponents?

Should be the case from April, according to an interview with Wiel Dohmen on CargoForwarder:

As from next April, the airport’s 2,750 m runway can be used to its full length. Today, this use is limited to 2,500 m only. “This will enable our customers to reach the U.S. and China without additional fuel stops, which is another trump card for our future development. The discussion has led to some fears that a full use of the runway would attract larger aircraft types, but we already have them!”

The full interview with Wiel Dohmen on CargoForwarder.eu:
On 1 July 2016, Trade Centre Global Investments BV (TCGI) took over the management of Maastricht Aachen Airport (MST). Barely three months later Russian newcomer SkyGate Airlines landed at the airport. Managing Director Wiel Dohmen is convinced that great days are ahead for the airport located at the borders between the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
TCGI is a holding company whose portfolio also includes Global GSA Group, and Global Airlines Services. Not coincidently, Global Airlines Services is the GSA of two long-standing cargo companies serving MST, Royal Jordanian and Turkish Airlines.

SkyGate Airlines flies with a leased B747-400F the route Moscow Sheremetyevo (SVO)-MST-Baku Heydar Aliyev Airport (GYD)-SVO, four times a week. Baku acts as a transit point for Far East cargo, brought in by Silkway Airlines, with which it has an interline agreement. This situation is temporary, says Wiel. “As soon as SkyGate has more aircraft at its disposal, it will fly directly from the Far East to Maastricht.”

Turkish Airlines Cargo (THY) has been at the airport since 1994, bringing in 7 Airbus A-330Fs per week from and to Istanbul Ataturk (IST). “Turkish also serves Nairobi and, following the flower season, the company will bring us up to 11 flights this February.”

Royal Jordanian (RJ) flies the route MST-Amman (AMM)-JFK-AMM-JFK-MST four times a week. Currently, RJ uses A-310Fs, but in the near future it will change to 330Fs. On top of this MST welcomes ad-hoc flights from Qatar, Emirates, and Saudia etc.

First line logistics
One could say that MST is sort of squeezed in between Liege, Cologne-Bonn, Amsterdam and Brussels, but this can work out as an advantage as the other airports are nearing congestion, says Wiel. The managing director is convinced that TGCI has secured the future of the airport for the middle to long term. The group was granted a license for 10 years, extendable to 25.

“We may not be Brussels or Amsterdam, but I think we may grow into a beautiful airport for some customers. You also mustn’t forget that even if we are on the border of Belgium and Germany, we are still in the Netherlands. This is an important issue with respect to fiscal representation, as a lot of the products brought in are intended for the Dutch market. Our philosophy is that you should always start from your own strength. We are a one-stop airport, able to perform the entire process, through a single point of contact.”

Recently MST has added a 9,000 m² logistics warehouse right on the airside. “So in the first line we offer all sorts of logistic services that would normally be performed on the 2nd line.” The new facility complements an older warehouse of the same size, which is soon to be replaced by a brand new one. The new warehouse is TAPA-certified, says Wiel. “We handle a lot of hi-tech.”

Broad spectre of services
MAA is however not joining the growing number of European airports vying for IATA CEIV Pharma certification. “If everybody wants to go into pharma logistics, they will all get a rather small piece of the cake. I am trying to keep our offer as broad as possible. This, again, is where logistics comes in. Apart from the new on-tarmac warehouses mentioned above, MST has also built a logistics facility at the east side of the airport, to accommodate freight trucked in and out. This is important, as all the larger players in the transport and logistics industry are present at the airport.

Contrary to other airports, MST does not seem to be too much hindered by protesting neighbours. Wiel agrees: “You can hear that there is an airport, but on the other hand we are closed 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. That is a reason why we cannot and will not have an integrator. The night closure will always be maintained. You see: we are willing to make some concessions.”

Full use of runway
As from next April, the airport’s 2,750 m runway can be used to its full length. Today, this use is limited to 2,500 m only. “This will enable our customers to reach the U.S. and China without additional fuel stops, which is another trump card for our future development. The discussion has led to some fears that a full use of the runway would attract larger aircraft types, but we already have them!”

During 2016 MST reported a total volume of 83,000 tonnes, up from 74,000t in 2015. Of last year’s volume, 66,000 tonnes were actually flown, 17,000 were trucked. “I think we have the potential to go for 240,000 tonnes by 2024,” Wiel Dohmen concludes.

http://www.1limburg.nl/corendon-gaat-va ... ts-vliegen

Reisorganisatie Corendon begint volgende maand weer met vakantievluchten van Maastricht Aachen Airport naar Faro, Heraklion én naar Antalya.
Reisorganisatie Corendon biedt ook de vlucht naar de Turkse badplaats weer aan. In AvondGasten vertelt Atilay Uslu, eigenaar en oprichter van de reisorganisatie waarom hij deze beslissing heeft genomen.
Turkije-specialist
"Origineel was Corendon een Turkije-specialist, maar ik merk dat de vraag naar deze vakantiebestemming steeds minder wordt. En dat is jammer", zegt hij. Op dit moment wordt het land 26 procent minder geboekt als reisbestemming vergeleken met voorheen.

Van de vluchten die Corendon aanbiedt in Maastricht Aachen Airport, zijn Heraklion (Griekenland), Faro (Portugal) en Spanje de best verkopende. Turkije was de slechtst lopende bestemming. Maar Uslu gaat ervan uit dat hij dit heeft opgelost met zijn nieuwe formule. "Omdat we Antalya nu als een combi-vlucht kunnen aanbieden met Eindhoven, zijn de vluchten vol", zegt hij.

No 2750m per 1/4/17. There are some delays:
Naar aanleiding van recentelijke berichtgeving op 1Limburg.nl over het informeren van luchtvaartmaatschappijen en piloten over de verlengde startbaan in Beek, hecht Maastricht Aachen Airport eraan om dit toe te lichten.

Bij een definitief besluit van het Ministerie van I&M omtrent het volledige baangebruik (2750 m) op Maastricht Aachen Airport, dient de luchthaven dit kenbaar te maken via de Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP). Dit is een data set waaruit de piloten de gegevens van inrichting en uitrusting van Maastricht Aachen Airport kunnen raadplegen; dit wordt via de Luchtverkeersleiding Nederland gepubliceerd.
Maastricht Aachen Airport heeft dit conform de daarvoor geldende procedures en termijnen in gang gezet waarbij er gepland werd voor ingebruikname per 01 April 2017.

In het formele proces dient de luchthaven op voorhand gegevens aan de Luchtverkeersleiding Nederland ter beschikking te stellen om bepaalde termijnen te kunnen halen. Dit omdat wijzigingen in het AIP slechts enkele keren per jaar plaats kunnen vinden. Via een Trigger Notam (Notice to Airmen) worden de luchtvaartmaatschappijen en piloten er vervolgens op gewezen dat er veranderingen op komst zijn voor de betreffende luchthaven, die ze in het AIP kunnen raadplegen.

De luchtvaartmaatschappijen en piloten krijgen zo ruim tijd om de veranderingen op te nemen in hun eigen data manuals.
Omdat het traject van de besluitvorming omtrent de invoering voor het volledige baangebruik vertraging heeft opgelopen, zal de luchthaven aan de Luchtverkeersleiding Nederland aangeven dat de publicatie uitgesteld dient te worden tot het moment dat hiervoor goedkeuring is verkregen van het Ministerie van I&M.

Maastricht Aachen Airport betreurt dat door deze voortijdige publicatie mogelijk verwarring is ontstaan en verklaart dat er absoluut geen gebruik gemaakt zal worden van de 2750 meter startlengte, voordat er een positief besluit hieromtrent is genomen en merkt hierbij tevens op dat er absoluut geen sprake is van gedogen en er ook geen sprake is van enige vorm van fysieke verlenging van de bestaande baan. Het gaat hierbij om een aanpassing van het gebruik van de bestaande start- en landingsbaan.
