Re: 2019 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

Doesn't european law require an environmental study now prior to change departure routes at airports ? I think I saw a statement of Minister Bellot recently about that for departure routes from BRU.
Or maybe FedEx tries to have those LGG departure routes changed before that law !

Re: 2019 Liège Airport (LGG/EBLG) latest news

In their 2018 activity report, they even mention a change in flight procedures. I don't know what they mean ! I heard FedEx asked for SID changes at LGG. The current SID's are (to say the least) completely inefficient, probably even more in the eyes of americans ;) That would be in contradiction wi...

The shorter runway is going to be extended until 3300 meters... Indeed. As Liege Airport plans to close RWY 04R/22L for renovation works (around year 2026), RWY 04L/22R will be first extended to 3300 meters in order to accomodate wide bodies during closure of RWY 04R/22L.

No surprise it was only a few charters (no, the idiots didnt win)
It was indeed a contract for 6 charter flights, but it has been agreed not to accept such a contract anymore !
So the "idiots" might still have won a battle 😉

But the rest is very weird and yet to be confirmed
Some flights between Jeddah-Liege-JFK should be operated by Air Atlanta Icelandic B747-400F on behalf of Saudia Cargo. Air Atlanta Icelandic is already operating 7 passengers B747-400 for Saudia.
