Corendon CEO: Number of routes uncertain for launch at Schiphol due to slot ‘waiting list’

    Corendon CEO Steven van der Heijden stated Amsterdam Schiphol Airport “has reached its maximum capacity and placed a large number of… airlines on a waiting list” (luchtvaartnieuws.nl, 06-Feb-2018). He said: “For the time being, we have insufficient certainty that we can actually carry out these flights on the waiting list”. Mr van der Heijden pointed to Maastricht/Aachen Airport gaining popularity as a result, with more than a third of holidays departing Maastricht already sold for summer 2018. “The airport offers the holidaymaker many advantages such as free parking, cheap rates… and hardly any queues”, Mr van der Heijden said.
