Re: Transavia to fly from BRU with 2 Boeing 737s in Summer 2020

In my opinion, BRU will, as Conti764 said, serve as a 'spill over'-base for AMS. At the end of 2020, AMS will again have the opportunity to grant airlines new slots, and one can assume that HV will move the BRU-flights to their home in AMS. I believe they also announced it this way, no? Or perhaps n...

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

Let’s raise our critical voices once again. I’m a bit concerned as to the number of new destinations, let alone possible new airlines at BRU in 2019. As far as I remember, in the past years, we always had a quite admirable list of new destinations (albeit seasonal) and new airlines (take last year w...

Delta change their Atlanta – Brussels Service. It converts to year-round again, but with 4 weekly 767 flights, instead of planned daily.

Re: BRU Summer 2017: news, new routes, airlines

Given the Qatar Airways booking system, they're upgrading their daily B787-800 flight to a daily A350-900XWB one, starting from june 2017! Something to look forward too!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Etihad Airways announce a (major) expansion at our national Airport?

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

It might be too simplistic, but why not extend the taxiway at the other side (south) of the runway. This means that the planes cross the runway while taxiing, but that is very common on a lot of airports. Then no houses will need to dissapear? What about the asylum centre and its surrounding buildi...

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

In both of those cases, Humelgem will be surrounded by aircraft. Even houses would have to disappear. This will be the main source of complaints imo... but I can't see any other way to be able to let aircraft take off on 25L then to extend the taxiway already exesting, parallel to the runway.

WW463 BRU-KEF (days: 1357): 12h25 - 13h50 WW462 KEF-BRU (days: 1357): 06h15 - 11h35 50 minutes rotation in BRU, quite quickly I think... Quickly indeed. Also because they'll (probably) be using their 220-seat a321, since they don't operate a320 aircraft anymore (since october 2016). Compare it with...
