Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Air Antwerp opened bookings via KLM. €70 one-way, €108 return flight. Very attractive fares and time schedule. It's even 109 euros for a same day return! I hope the Fokker 50 is just an interim-solution to facilitate a quick start-up process and lower the start-up costs. Let's hope for an ATR inste...

Re: BRU Summer 2019: news, new routes, airlines

Well, today Brussels Airport welcomed its first flight from Tallinn operated by AirBaltic using Airbus A220-300, excuse me Bombardier CSeries CS300, 3 flights per week. Nothing compared to the 9 flights per week of Nordica / LOT. Capacity-wise, airBaltic adds 870 seats a week (based on 145 seats pe...

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

What two AC-routes are you talking about?

Toronto is served by Brussels Airlines
Montréal is served by Air Canada and Air Transat

At least, this is what I can see in Amadeus GDS :)

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

And how much SN has to pay for this ? Doesn't make sense to keep wet leasing planes instead of just getting more planes. Unless they want SN to fail, I suppose.

I seem to recall it’s in LJU for a C-check?
And if I remember it correctly, it won’t return sporting the Tintin colour scheme, but it will return in SN colours.
Until 2019 says the Brussels Airlines website... unless it's to be read as until the beginning of 2019 😉

Nordica is mulling buying out the stake held by LOT in their joint carrier, Regional Jet (Estonia), as Nordica does believe LOT will be in it for the long-run due to changing market conditions. However, the buyout would not necessarily be the end of their collaboration. Nordica is underperforming, ...

Walloon Government examined this morning the possibility of granting a loan of €4 mln for Air Belgium. If that is allowed by EU ? Perhaps they should start working iso celebrating King day :roll: State aid? Or will they give 4 mln euros to Brussels Airlines, TUI fly and SHS Aviation as well? 😁
