Very interesting debate indeed (if you can save 30 minutes of your time to listen), between the CEO of BSCA, the Walloon Minister in ch&rge of airports and the main shareholder of BSCA.

Extension of the runway by 650m to bring it to 3200m: some new neighbours will be impacted and the Walloon Region will either buy their houses or pay for sonic insulation. Why can't Brussels Airport find similar solutions?

When the runway is completed, CRL expects four long-haul flights a day between 10:00 and 20:00, thus no night flights (curfew will remain from 23:00 to 06:30).

CRL is courting Air Belgium, from the very beginning (even if the current length of the runway doesn't allow to take off at full load). CEO Cloquet says that Air Belgium has already contracted with Chinese tour operators.

CRL claims 190 destinations (Ryanair: 86, WizzAir: 9, TUIfly: 30, Air Corsica: 2, Belavia: 9 and Pegasus: 55).

To insulate sonically the houses or buy them around Brussels Airport it could be possible in less densely populated areas.
If you want to implement that with Brussels it will be to costly.
So the solution could be to insulate or buy all the houses on runway 01/19 and use it for night flights?!?!
Hasta la victoria siempre.

Night flights to/from Brussels Airport violate the Brussels Region noise restrictions when they are within a range of 100 kms from the airport. And Bellot refuses to make an aviation law, settling that.
