N1120a, are you sure of that ?
I'm just back from FR's website, the closest airports shown on their destinations map are Eindhoven or Düsseldorf...
I'm just 30min car drive from Maastricht so I'd love to see FR there  Smile

FR has flown there, but no longer.

For arr/dep of flights to/from Maastricht, look at http://teletekst.nos.nl/all/768.html

I scratch my head, therefore I am.

Therefore, it's only KLM and Surinam Airways that have scheduled pax service into Maastricht, right? I'm not interested in cargo flights; and I'm only interested in destinations within Europe.

I'm surprised though to read about Surinam Airways flying there! Oh well, as a former Dutch colony, why not?!

Thx for the replies!  Wink/being sarcastic

KLM exel tried to build up scheduled routes with their ERJ145 and E120s for a while, but all destinations they tried (like Munich, Berlin, Milan) had to be axed. Ryanair operated MST-STN for a year or so and forced KLM exel off the route on which it had operated for many years. When Ryanair pulled out, KLM exel did not resume its services to the UK. So it's down to the AMS feeder route and charter services mainly by Transavia and airlines from Turkey.

I think SNBA319 was joking about Surinam. If you read the photo caption, it was a one-time diversion due to fog at AMS.

While MST sees lots of activity from various airlines and lots of different aircraft types coming to MST for maintainance or cargo or on charter flights, scheduled flights are very very limited. The regional flights up to AMS are the only scheduled services that remain, once operated by NLM, for years by Air Exel which became KLM Exel, and now the flights will go to Cityhopper. Ryanair's operations in MST were short-lived - the one flight per day (usually an early morning arrival with a quick turn and a very early departure) simply did not work; one flight per day in a market is a difficult proposition. As a result of the Ryanair fiasco, MST lost its long-time service to London: Virgin (yes, Virgin) once operated a London flight and for many years (KLM) Exel operated 3 weekday flights to STN. As pointed out above, there are a good number of charter flights operated by Dutch and other charter carriers to destinations in Spain, Turkey and seasonally to Greece (the schedules vary by season and by year).

MST has a large population base nearby, the entire Dutch province of Limburg including Maastricht itself, nearby Aachen, Germany and the eastern portion of Belgium including the city of Liege (which has a large cargo airport but also lacks scheduled services). Dutch people in the area use BRU (about 1.25 hours away) and a surpising number go up to AMS (3+ hours by car) to catch flights out, the German population in the area have their choice of CGN or DUS, and those in Belgium use BRU. MST should be more popular and have more service, but for some reason it does not work - when flying out of MSTon a charter, its surprising how many Belgian and German pax are on board.

I live 15 minutes from MST and drive by it going to/from work......its sad that I always must go all the way to BRU when flying.
