Re: Air Belgium in 2020

Although I still regret the fact that they don't fly from BRU, I'm happy to see they're doing well!

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

can we , as a normal visitor or passenger, get a glimpse of this skyhall. like many of us , this hall brings me back to my childhood in the '70s It should be possible, in the part of the terminal with the check-in counters 11, 12 and 14. It is next to the Skyhall and there are windows between them....

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

The facade of the terminal, departure hall, is under renovation. The side wall, next to this one of the Deloitte building, is already finished. This is done in the same stone as the Deloitte building. Now the front part is under renovation Pictures available ?? Hopefully it will be more than some '...

Regarding the terminal itself, there will be a prolonging of the terminal in the direction where the former DHL building was. But this is still under reservation.
Interesting!

You mean where the current (old) Swissport builing is located?

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Renovation of the facade?

Is there any global plan/new design for the terminal? What architect designed it? Where are the renders?

Instead of an overall ambitious plan they will 'renovate' bit by bit without any global approach?


Please tell me I'm wrong.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

A company the size of SN has to position itself as premium in the market in order to compete. It doesn't have the size LH, AF, KL, BA, IB,... and other big Euro legacy carriers have so it has to differentiate itself on service level, right the contrary they do today and what LH wants them to do.

Re: Lufthansa in 2019

Interesting, Brussels Airllines is again mentioned seperately several times... But still not a "Network airline". It shows the ambiguity of the LH management relative to SN. They still don't have a clue/plan what to do with Brussels Airlines. They keep excluding them from the Network airlines, whil...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

They wanted/bought SN for their ridiculous Eurowings project. Now that has failed they don't have a clue what to do with it.

Maybe they should just sell it to a company that is genuinely interested in BRU's home carrier. IAG? AF-KL?

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I am very curious about the plan LH has for SN... Will the airline finally be treated like a family member or still like an unwanted child?

They have ordered up to 40 new B787/A350 for everyone

Let's hope these Falcons get a nice livery (so not the boring one the Embraers or A321 have).

Just to compare: this is the Dutch government jet

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Ok, let me explain. As you probably knows, BAC bought the Sheraton in front of the airport some time ago. Real Estate is a big part of the airports portfolio. Two major reasons for this: the hotel has most of the time full capacity, sold out and second, when you are owner of it, you can do with it ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

With all due respect……………. LOL !!! This is worse than amateur window dressing from BRU. I hope BAC realises the urgency of getting a new departures area ASAP. Apart from the vague, dreamy "2040" plans I haven't seen a single real, tangible plan. The current drop off, taxi and bus area are absolutel...
