Maastricht Aachen Airport (MST) has appointed Jonas van Stekelenburg as interim chief executive officer (CEO), for an initial period of nine months.

The airport’s new holding company, NV HBLM, has made the change to drive MST’s strategic goals of enhanced sustainability, digitalisation, and cargo and passenger development.

Van Stekelenburg brings extensive aviation expertise to the role, having already provided advisory services to MST's management and supervisory board. He is well-positioned to guide MST through its transitional phase, the company said, having spent 2002 to 2018 at the Royal Schiphol Group.

"Our strategy is focused on delivering a resilient, sustainable, and environmentally conscious airport for the local community and its future,” said van Stekelenburg.

“I thank my predecessor Jos Roeven for the great job he did, which has led to the strong foundation upon which we can now build. Moving forward, we are dedicated to furthering the sustainable evolution of MST’s operations and advancing both our passenger and cargo services.”

The changes come as part of a strategic initiative following the joint investment commitment of the Provincial Council of Limburg and the Royal Schiphol Group.
