What is your source for this? Based on current inventory there are flights loaded for two aircraft during the high summer. The number of actual flights is far higher (42), but that's thanks to Corendon Airlines Turkey operating the Antalya flights (11) and Izmir flights (2). Subtract the Almasria (3) and BH Air ops (1) and you're left with 25-weekly flights to be operated by MST-based aircraft. On most days these aircraft will operate 2 rotations each, except Monday and Friday (the Gran Canaria/Tenerife combi flight takes 1 frame for an entire day) and Thursday, where a MST-based bird operates MST-KGS-AMS-KGS-MST.

Just for an overview I have updated my spreadsheet, here's the latest state of affairs:

My thoughts: adding another frame would be fantastic, but also would mean a lot of capacity- this would basically mean that you'd need to find demand for 14 additional flights a week. You could shuffle some Antalya flights to a MST-based aircraft I guess, but even then you'll still need to find some other markets to make it all work.

Corendon has added a 5th weekly flight to Antalya for the pre-summer season (09 APR - 25JUN). Note that the 5-weekly frequency is the minimun during this time,in a lot of weeks the frequency is actually higher thanks to additional Corendon and Pegasus charters.

de 3de base kist die zou volgen is cancelled, men voorzag problemen om in korte tijd ongeveer 600 pax te moeten inchecken en te accommoderen in de terminal, daarbij zou een 3de base kist die om 0600 zou vertrekken ook erg op de geluidsruimte drukken. De geplande vluchten worden nu uitgevoerd met een non-base kist en komen in iedergeval na 0730L pas aan op MST.

That's interesting, so should Corendon wish to grow to 3 aircraft next summer this would basically require a terminal expansion?

Regarding Corendon frequency in the pre-summer season: it's down back to 4-weekly. The Tuesday flight is still there, but the Wednesday flight has been removed from the system.

Sadly that's true..... two flights and the terminal is quite full. At least that's what was the case last year.

Corendon has removed its increase to 11-weekly during peak season for Antalya. It's back to daily, maybe we will see flights added again as summer gets closer.

In a bit of a surprise move, Corendon has opened bookings for Trapani (TPS). This appears to replace Palermo (PMO). Both are bookable at this point but the flight number and pattern (CND293/294, MST-AHO-TPS/PMO-MST) are the same. I expect Palermo to be removed.

Destination Palermo are removed from the list.
Only Trapani and alghero.

Corendon has opened bookings for Nicosia (Cyprus), 1-weekly from 14JUN, 2-weekly during July and August. Flights operate via Antalya both ways, but they appear to be seperate from the AYT flights as timings do no match the other AYT flights.

EDIT: Exact same flight numbers are bookable from AMS too, it might be a glitch.
