Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I can understand your reasoning, but letting SN sink down would mean a huge blow to Brussels Airport as well, still Belgiums second economical pool. I've seen this argument a few times, but how much does that economical activity rely on SN? Just a thought: Cargo-operations are a big part of the eco...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Hi, Why would LH kill SN.. Corona will just give them the tools they need... Shrinking to the minimum needs to make money... There is money to be made in BRU but with less Planes,People, rules to follow... And government support. We need an airliner and with no other options... No DAT,Virgin anymor...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I wouldn't be surprised to see SN and OS being up for sale in the not so distant future. The entire aviation world will change heavily and it remains to be seen how the Belgian government will react. Logically, given the importance of SN to the second biggest economic pool in Belgium, they would do...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I was talking to a good friend TRI/TRE flying for Brussels Airlines and the future looks very dark. Lufthansa Group will give financial priority to Lufthansa FIRST and nothing is sure about a Belgian State Aid, cash situation is critical at SN as we speak (type...). The current situation is that SN...

Re: Brucargo 2020: cargo routes & news

2. A new cargo player at Brucargo: Silkway will fly a few times a week between Baku and BRU. For the moment 2 flights a week. Is it a direct consequence of COVID-19 or already planned for a while ? Hi, No, this was planned. Nothing to do with COVID-19 The same for Sichuan Airlines who upgraded the ...

Re: 2020 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

Why are those airlines shifting to AMS when you have BRU much closer? With disapearing passenger flights I can imagine BRU handlers still have some spare capacity, no? Spare capacity yes, but you also need the people. That's what I mean with capacity. I imagine workers from pax ops can be shifted t...

Any pictures with overview of parked planes taken at Brussels Airport?
A have seen one in the media.

For the rest, I don't know if it's against BAC policy to take and share pictures from the tarmac?

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

A little side discussion maybe... Seeing the global impact Covid-19 has, wouldn't it be a good idea to freeze the global monetary situation from right before the Covid-19-crisis? Belgium is now paying about a million people for a partial unemployment, supporting businesses and giving bank guarantees...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

On BRU's facebookpage it is mentioned that BRU now 'uses passengerplanes' to relieve cargo operators, transporting a.o. medical supplies.

SN equipment?

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

I wonder what Covid-19 will change in aviation on the longer term. Less hub to hub and hub to spoke flying and more point to point? The latter might prove easier to cope with future (major) disruptions. Covid-19 is considered the biggest global crisis since WW2 and might be a turning point like we'v...
