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...

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...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Dear mates, OK you got it : LH did not kill SN... I did not use the right words, driven by emotion. But the facts are : LH erases SN belgian identity and does not invest in the belgian carrier devlpt. Thus, the future of BRU as a hub does not look good! Dear member, For sure LH can't forbid BRU and...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

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...

Why don't they do one of their airbus A330? Would be nice
One assumption, already read on this forum, could be visibility : most of their A330 are flying and are on the airfields essentially at night, at the opposite of the A319/A320 family.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

On another aviation discussion thread about Austrian aviation news, the future of ''Austrian'' is regularely at issue. Name change too. I read by example a mention to ''Eurowings Austrian''. And that it will not be easy to skip ''Austrian'' name because the airline is very respected in that country....
