According to this article Air Belgium Cargo will probably operate with Airbus A330-200F aircraft!
one would almost think they read the Air Belgium thread before creating this article.

Re: Air Belgium in 2021

CMA owns or leases the aircraft and fills them with freight. Air Belgium puts them on their AOC and takes care of the operational side of things. This way CMA has no need to go thru the cumbersome process of acquiring their own Belgian AOC (they invested in a french airline group already) and the ad...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

Mouth masks, clothes,... or any other boxed item that is not to bulky can be loaded in the cabin. They only need to make sure it can not shift during the flight.

Largest boxes I've seen loaded in a cabin were +/- 50cmx50cmx120cm. And even perishables (flowers) are loaded that way.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

Yes, the flight to Freetown last week was a full-cargo flight, carrying medical equipment from "Medecin sans frontière" What I meant is "I assume it's only belly cargo". I don't think SN has any convertible A330. it only depends on if they like to take a risk on damaging the sea...

Why not? NH, VS, SK, 3U, UA,.... all fly passenger planes with cargo only to BRU and make money on it (I hope).
And even if they do not make a lot of money on it, they keep at least some crew up-to-date in regards of flying hour requirements.

Re: Boeing 747-8 news

And for freight, the 747 is still used a lot. Agreed, the 747-8I and its passenger-to-cargo converts can still keep up a few years, but what after that? Not only for routes with a lot of cargo, but also for big cargo. How would you transport an engine for an aircraft AOG if there are no planes to f...

Re: Swissport Belgium nv/sa bankruptcy

In a way you should be happy there are 6, this means they are more eager to handle a plane than just sitting inside waiting for their assigned plane coming in. It could also be that some of them are there to experience, first hand, the how and what the airline wants during turn-around. Hands-on expe...

Actually select BRU staff, so people working for the airport, such as airport inspection, facility technical staff, are trained and authorised to operate the bridge. For a few flights per day, they can operate the bridge, it's not like they are swamped with work. The staff that is trained from BRU ...
