Day (almost) trip to Djibouti.

Slow times lately so I thought I’d share with you some pics taken during my last trips. I had been invited to visit Djibouti airport (HDAM-JIB) at the end of November. First time in the country for me, not that I saw much of it though. The republic of Djibouti is small by size, 2/3 of Belgium, with ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Also note on the screenshot above the 4 TUI Airways heading down to Cape Verde Islands.

2x75s, 1x76 and 1x78.

All carrying their "TOM" ICAO code and appropriately spaced as TOM - TOM - TOM ^^^^ TOM.
A sign that Victory is near.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Hi, it's a wild guess, but maybe because they BRU-based A330's don't have a cargo crew rest? OO-SFP has been transferred to BRU yesterday, maybe for this purpose? ... OO-SFP is indeed planned to run SN9901 tomorrow. Leaving BRU at 0900, arriving DSS at 1410. Maybe a repatriation flight. Return afte...

Re: [Coronavirus] State aid for (European) airlines ?

in the meantime people and businesses should prepare for immediately after Covid-19, with Belgium and with Brussels Airlines. You seem to think that Covid 19 will disappear overnight and that it will be business as usual the next morning, I think it won’t. ... I agree with you. First it will not be...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

Yes its seems so hypocritical with whole countries in lockdown yet planes still prancing around with no care, some airlines that had announced drastic route cuts still flying to places that were part of the cut, also airlines from highly infected countries maintainng services to places that have re...
