Maastricht Aachen Airport (MAA) and Royal Schiphol Group have reached an agreement in principle to start a strategic partnership. Schiphol will acquire a 40% interest in MAA for €4.2 million. As a result of this agreement, the parties will invest in the future of MAA together. This far-reaching cooperation is in line with the government’s Aviation policy, requests from Parliament (Tweede Kamer) and the amendment of the Provincial Council of Limburg.
With this collaboration, MAA will be able to focus on the development of a sustainable and future-proof airport. Electric flying will be one of the main priorities. An environmental fund will be created with contributions from governments and companies. Royal Schiphol Group will also contribute 800,000 euros to the fund. In addition, the parties are committing to a far-reaching exchange of knowledge in the areas of real estate and commerce.
