Re: Norwegian in 2020

China takes stake in Norwegian Air Just to clarify, as your bold seems to suggest the Chines invested money in Norwegian, which is NOT the case. Outstanding debts from leasing have been converted into shares to avoid bankruptcy, it’s not an investment. I don't know the details of this particular de...

Re: 2020 Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL/EBCI) latest news

3rd alert level at Charleroi, after a passenger from Luxembourg who landed at CRL was tested positive. It was a pax from Italy, afaik. That's indeed what our article says: a Luxembourg passenger coming from Italy ;) https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/coronavirus-a-luxembourg-passenger-arriving-from...

And it won't be accepted by the unions either.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Of course there are a lot of connecting passengers on CDG-BRU, these flights are only bootable as connecting flights... But a significant portion of these passengers traveled from Brussels to Paris by FlixBus first because CDG-BRU-FIH is cheaper than BRU-FIH. Often the ones who check their bags in ...
