Surfing on the web for more information 'Silkway west Airlines' I noticed the delivery of plane no. 8 last week.

But also noticed some data as "cargolux" , "Amsterdam" and "Luxemburg" I hope those names will not be a threat for
longlasting operations at MAA.

Just wondering, is there an official announcement coming from the airport or the company itself about the new route? Couldn't find anything on the internet so far and we're almost halfway September already?

That caused a hudge delay, approval for use the whole lenght will not be on short notice, last week mr. Beurskens had a meeting with Sharon Dijkstra of Min. of infrastructure and if I am right approval maybe expected at the end of 2016/beginning 2017.
( in line with finalizing groundwork Cargo terminal East/appron D. )

Nothing will be moved to AMS, today we were informed that they will start MST ops. for a freight forwarding company who has just opend a office and planning more flights into MST in the near future, but the operations are delayed until further notice, im expecting them begin S17 or in line with the 2750m runway ops.

I asked a representative of the Province about the expected date, he said "hopefully this spring". Doesn't sound like it's going to happen on a short notice..

Flightradar is now showing flight 7L8 SVO-MST (ETA 1930 on 07/10). Ofcourse this flight will not yet operate, but might be a preview of what is to come.

It looks like Silk Way is not our new airline, but Sky Gates Airlines (SAY) is. They are a recent Russian startup who have wetleased a 747-400F from Silk Way West.

Both 747s are operating for Silkway West. VP-BCH has been painted recently in full Silkway West colors. VP-BCI has full Sky Gates colours. (Ex Cathay Pacific aircraft)

But both are operating for Silkway West right?
Sky Gates isn't in touch with MST...Only with the old livery right?

They have never been at MST before. This is a new airline which is operating since a few weeks.
