Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

If XL airways is really going bankrupt, there will be 4 A332 with Trent engines on the market maybe one or two for Brussels Airlines?

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

The present utilisation is rather unfortunate: the IC trains from Dinant and Charleroi have the airport station for their terminus, which makes them stand there for quite a long while which is not a very efficient way to use this expensive infrastructure. There should be more trains like the Antwer...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Don't think VFR - think diamond trade. I've always said this and I still cling to it: this airport does not stand a chance as "just another airport", it is indeed too near the big ones that are very well connected by rail and road. Only as a specialised business airport can it have an effective rol...

I guess that lumumba meant "airports managed by Flanders", as opposed to BRU, located in Flanders but considered as a national airport.
That's the case but nevertheless Brussels Airport is in Flanders.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

An airline with it's core business flying to Africa should plan to have some Febreze on hand. :lol: Seems to me like the sound of monkey shouts in a stadium... :evil: :roll: It’s not an insult or bias, just a factual observation I’m sure many can confirm.

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

SN should open more direct flights to business destinations with a high frequency When they can't fill the planes that would be a loss-making strategy, so it would be stupid to do so... And why focus on connecting passengers flying to business destinations, and thereby neglecting leisure travelers ...
