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

Return of a ‘previously lost’ airline / destination also in the picture. Cannot disclose more for the time being, but from a high level and very reliable source. Guess we need to have a bit of patience. Yes, thank you. Just guesses for long haul : AA to/from PHL. SA to/from JNB (but unlikely becaus...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Everyone from anywhere (in Belgium or abroad) might have to take a plane at/to BRU, everyone in Brussels, in Flanders and Wallonia can share any noise disadvantage from BRU. Each at a given time might need to understand the languages of other people, so ball in the center. And back to aviation matte...

Another idea. A revival.
No mention of Brussels as a future destination but a new african player in the skies from Entebbe. With a long haul project.

On French Aviation forum, some people are saying, that SN will end its double daily service to Nantes, from 23 November 2019, anyone can confirm ? Thanks I cannot confirm, but I always thought a CRJ900 is too big for Nantes, and since there no more a subcontractors like flybmi with smaller planes.....

But to Shenzhen you need a visa to Hong Kong not.
Yes, indeed.
A single entry five days visa on arrival is available at the border in Shenzhen. The validity shall not be extendable.

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

Emirates wants to start flying with their A380 to BRU if the new triple bridge is working fine. If not, a third daily flight is under consideration. But everything depends on the bilateral agreements. as they come with T7 at the moment they can only test 2 bridges. They seem to be working just fine...

Conti764 wrote: 13 Jul 2019, 09:49 Then again, LH in its new livery has a tale similar to SN and Austrian has red on the end of the fuselage as well. Only SN and LX carry an all white fuselage.
SN has rather a white livery on the top of the fuselage and a light blue livery on the bottom.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Whatever the name or the livery projects, SN/EW is still the home carrier employing locals here and abroad, and transporting passengers to and via BRU. So personnally, no reason to avoid SN.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

Like some people say here, that from now on they will only fly with AF, KLM, BA etc, I think is simply ridiculous. If you still want to be a little patriotic. Then support at least the people who work here in Belgium. Otherwise have fun on your 1-stop hopping trough Europe... :roll: Greetings Chris...

Not at all... they have killed the belgian flag carrier ! At the contrary (and for the zillionth time): Lufthansa has saved Brussels Airlines ten years ago, when the Belgians didn't want to invest in their flag airline / national carrier / whatever you want to call it. Without the support from Luft...
