target for 2019 will be : 350.000 pax.

mr. Fons Latour, head pax. developments expect that the current 22 dest. soon will be increased with more new dest.

Surfing in this lounge section I found the following info.confirmed flights for S19

Ryanair : Malta ( most likely Alicante will follow , others Bari/Girona ? )

Corendon : Corfu, Zakynthos, Samos, Rhodos, Kos, Lesbos and Heraklion ( all Greece.)
............... Antalya,Izmir, Bodrum, Faro, Palma de Mallorca.

I believe more flights will be announced and a second Corendon plane will be based at MAA for a longer period than this year.

Please feel free to add more flight info . Most welcome !

Hurghada/Egypt and Ohrid/Macedonia must join the list of destinations for S19. (Egypt starts April until end of Aug. ! Macedonia as from may)

Thanks for your contribution but at this moment only Alghero/Sardinia is bookable for S19. One weekly flight on Tuesday.

Hopefully the others will follow, also Bulgaria is missing at he Corendon site.

The number of destinations/flights offered by Corendon at MAA is very impressing compared with the same period last year.

I saw on flight radar that the RJA1135 flight
MST-JFK on monday, moves to LGG. I hope no other companies will follow. I think MST needs new cargo flights,there is space enough like mondays and wednesdays. Seems hard to get new ones.

That flight moved to LGG because of the night curfew at MST. I wouldn’t worry too much about a once-a-week flights when the cargo figures are double the amounts of 2017z

Waarom zoveel zeuren over minder vluchten? In de wereld van luchtvaart gaat alles niet zo snel er gaan soms maanden zelf jaren overheen dat een airline de benodigde rechten of papieren krijgt. Ik denk dat MAA goed werk heeft geleverd afgelopen jaar en 2019 nog veel beter gaat worden. In Oktober komen er alweer vrachtvluchten bij, dus niet zo negatief, langzaam groeien en alles in goede banen leiden, vergeet niet dat het niet alleen om vliegbewegingen gaat operationeel is er veel meer gaande dan enkel een inbound en outbound vlucht!

Beste Limburgwiki en Multiverse: Al meer dan 40 jaar volg ik de ontwikkelingen van MAA met veel interesse en heb dus heel wat negatieve en zeker positieve mee gemaakt op onze luchthaven. Ik kan stellen dat ik zeker van veel zaken het naadje van de kous weet. Ik maakte alleen maar een opmerking en hoopte dan ook op een reaktie. De woorden " zeuren" en " negatief" vind ik naar mijns persoons gericht dan ook zeer ongepast en getuigd van weinig respect.

Perhaps could share some more details about this kind of development (if possible / allowed) with the people who dont have all this inside information as you clearly do. Makes them worry a bit less. I assume all with good intentions.

That will not be possible, as the cargo market is very competetive new routes or airlines will not be published in advance to avoid that other airports in the neighbourhood will try to take over before the routes actually start.
But be sure that a lot of effort is made to contract new airlines or that current airlines upgrade their number of flights.

Mark
