Enschede Airport Twente (also known as Twente Airport) is a general aviation airport near Enschede, Netherlands. A development proposal was introduced in 2010 to convert the then closed airport into an operating facility. Civil, military and commercial operations ceased at Twente Airport in 2007 pending a review by the government. The airport planned to resume commercial operations in 2016 despite German protests regarding the conversion of the former air force base into a regional airport. The project was headed by Reggeborgh and Aviapartner who purchased a 49-year concession for the airports' operation. However, the commercial airport proposal was abandoned by the provincial government in 2015, despite expressions of interest from Ryanair and Arkefly to operate services to Twente. The airport now serves as a general aviation hub and aircraft scrap yard for Aeronextlife.
