Aerocircular, the new company, expects to scrap about 25 aircraft per year. As far as I know, this is the first dedicated scrapping facility in Belgium....

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Found this on Skyliner:
Airbus A330 -342 895 OO-SFC Brussels Airlines ferried 28apr18 FRA-FCO, for paint into Eurowings cs
Will Eurowings have a second a330-300 in their fleet? I thought they were supposed to have only OO-SFB?
Someone with more information?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

Does anybody knows what happened to G-ECOK? Looks like he hasn't been flying around for some time. It flew to EXT on 01/08. Is it for paint in normal cs? Also, G-RJXI hasn't been flying around for some time as well. Also for paint? And it also seems that a lot of ERJ-flights just don't fly.

SWISS is now scheduled to take delivery of its first CS300 in May 2018, with eight C Series aircraft – one CS100 and seven CS300s – stationed in Geneva by end of 2018.
Don't you mean May 2017? ;) They are already doing some production testing with the first CS300.

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2017

Hi,
I was looking around on the website of Tuifly and I saw something interesting. Their site states that they have 16 B737-800's in their fleet and the last two of their list are OO-TUP "DESTINY" & OO-TUX "INTUITION". Does anybody has more information about these two frames?

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I recently contacted SN and they said a lot of interesting things: - SN will fly BMA till the very end with the RJ100, no type has been decided to fly there after the phase out. - there are no plans to phase out the dash Q400's and the ERJ. No decision has been taken to phase them out or to replace ...
