Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

Makes no sense to me why landings are not on 07L this morning, look at the wind direction & strength!
yesterday they used it even with lighter winds from 030 and 040 ! I'm often puzzled at Skeyes decision regarding the runway in use.

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

El Al missed approach this morning. But fortunately, after two more landings on 01 of other flights, the runway changed to 07L which meant a shorter second approach :)

Re: News from Pegasus Airlines (PGS)

Sabiha Gokcen Airport will have a second runway possibly by the end of this year. After that, they have plans to close the first runway to give a good well deserved maintenance. Once the first runway comes back to operations and both runways running together I think PGS will increase their flight n...

Just look at what’s below the final approach for a straight in on 07L and you have your answer.
I don't know what you mean. I'm not living near the airport.

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

As from 15:00 UTC (13/12/2018) the approach procedure(s) for RWY 07L/07R using RNP may not be used anymore. The BUB DVOR will be fully operational and may be used for instrument approach procedures : VOR RWY 07R - VOR RWY 07L hi, I don't understand this, it is much more efficient to use 07L for lan...

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

I was wondering : any feed-back from people since the beginning of RNAV approaches on runway 07L at Brussels (replacing the usual VOR approach, BUB beeing out of the air) ? Well I noticed in the past days (as we're having strong 06 and 07 winds) that the runway 07L is still used after dawn and that...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

ok the wind switched to 280 but at the time of the aborted landings there was a light wind from 060. I find it odd to abort two landings (the FR from Treviso was 2miles from the threshold...) but of course I don't have all the data.

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2018

what happened at BRU airport ? All the flights on final approach to 07L turned left and went on hold.
And after 15min they are now all heading to RWYs 25... I find this odd... there was no wind at that time...

Re: BRU Winter 2018-19: news, new routes, airlines

Agree, Wroclaw is one of the nicest towns of Poland.
However, I'm surprised BA goes for it, as Ryanair flights to Wroclaw are sooo cheap and I think not profitable (remember how empty the flight were some years ago). For example, I booked a ticket for 20€ return in August, over the weekend!

Ryanair is transfering all the Bru-Malta flights to Charleroi as from 25March :(
But Air Malta maintains its Brussels flights ;)

Now each of the two main Belgian airports has its daily Malta flights.
But Air Malta does certainly not offer the same low prices!!!

Re: Ryanair in 2018

Besides, with Brussels Airlines now an integral part of Eurowings, I wonder why Brussels hasn't started counting customers of Eurowings to/from our country as well? Ryanair adds all of their Belgian passengers up too, regardless whether they fly on Belgian based planes or not. Why not go one step f...
