The new Dutch airline Maastricht Airlines has announced regional operations from Maastricht-Aachen Airport. The airline plans to operate with an fleet of Fokker 50s from early 2013 to Amsterdam, Berlin SXF, Munich and Paris CDG. Later flights are planned to Copenhagen and London SEN. By end of 2014, the airline expects to operate six Fokker 50.
The most of the routes, Maastricht Airlines plans to operate, are currently unserved. On the planned route to London, Ryanair flies in competition to Stansted. The route to Berlin SXF is currently served by Germanwings, but the no-frills airline will cease operations on this route in a few months and has plans to restart this route, when the new BER airport opens.
Maasticht Airlines have announced to be a full-service carrier.
