Re: Air Belgium in 2020

On 1st February 2020, the official Belgian company registrar BCE / KBO has erased the official address of Aviation Investment Holding, Air Belgium's major shareholder ("erased": adresse radiée / doorgehaald adres). Their siège social / maatschappelijke zetel was: Ruelle Gare de Basse-Wavre 13/1, 130...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

For those who thaught that TUI nv/sa (Belgium) and/or Brussels Airlines nv/sa could benefit from the German state aid to TUI AG (Germany) and/or to Lufthansa: KfW, the German authority that helps companies in distress with financial aid, clearly forbits that their aid is used for foreign divisions: ...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

For flights only, EU Rule 261/2004 applies: outgoing and incoming flights for EU-carriers, outgoing flights only (out of the EU) for non-EU carriers. When an airline cancels a flight, 261/2004 Article 8 applies: when a flight is cancelled (no matter what the reason is), airlines must offer passenger...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Exactly RoMax. Once the moderators have moved this discussion to where it belongs = the topic "Impact of the coronavirus on aviation", I will gladly clarify. FACT: airlines are backed by IATA if they delay refunds. This is what Alexandre de Juniac, IATA chief, wrote in his 3th April 2020 blog: "... ...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I'm not a specialist on that specific question, but can refunds be demanded if and only if the flight is officially cancelled within a 14 days time frame before originally booked expected departure day? So TLSpotting could not meet required conditions to be refunded? I will reply a bit later in the...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The €1,8B German state aid (via KfW) to TUI AG (Germany) is only for the German company, and not for the foreign divisions. Trust the same principle will apply when Lufthansa gets a German bail out: only LH, not for SN OS LX. Any source for that? Yes. My source is reliable. Very reliable, actually....

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

I'm far from an expert but given the particular situation both companies are in, I could imagine a Fortis-scenario for Tui and a Belfius-scenario for SN. TUI BE doesn't need that (yet). The loan TUI secured a couple of days ago goes for the entire TUI group. Nope. The €1,8B German state aid (via Kf...

No Air Belgium, nor Air Antwerp ? They prefer to give money to LH ? The SR story ?

They suspect that LH won't have...

I have a lot of respect for those who create jobs in Belgium, even if it comes with foreign money. Absolutely none for narrow minded people we regularly read here.
