Some Info Wanted On AMS:)

Thu Oct 28, 2004 12:34 am

Hey everyone,

Today I was passing AMS and I saw that next to the Martinair Cargo building (on the Schiphol Oost side) there were 2 747's, all white with blue tail, I think they were from Polar Air Cargo.

Now my question: Are those 2 spots the new (temporarily?) parking spots for the cargo aircraft? I heard something in school about this.

Thanks,

Kas

The ramp where the MP cargo aircraft park should indeed be the same as where the PO aircraft get parked for their ops into AMS.

AFAIK, PO handling should take place in some sort of a temporary reinforced tent, until they put a new warehouse somewhere over there.

Hallo Kas,

those 2 stands are new. They were made for PO. The warehouse next to it is temperarely. The PO warehouse will be build next year next to the MP Cargo centre.
