Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

4 airplanes? More like 2: one to LCY and one to GVA. Other destination will be middle of the day operations with same planes. Luxemburg? Destination is GVA, but will make a stop in LUX on the way and try to sell some tickets. BTW they are very responsive when you contact them with some constructive ...

Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

The Green party has nothing to say. They are cowards and too scared to get involved with real politics. Sticking to your own principles makes this come to a standstill. BTW the city has nothing to say about what is happening at the airport. It is the responsibility of the Flemish government ...

Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

What kept me away is that I have been in front of a closed door several times when I wanted to spend some money there. For morning departures they were closed. For evening arrivals they were closed. Roof terras closed when the weather was good, because no staff for the service... I can take it upsta...

ANR to HAM in 1h20, to NCE in 1h50... simply not possible with an ATR72. Saab 2000 maybe?
Thy only have ATR72 (36-56 seats) and PC12 (6-9 seats) aircraft. But indeed they might acquire other ones...
They have no planes at all. They will wetlease capacity since they are a virtual airline.

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2019

Close to full indeed, but still less than on other destinations and at low prices... so my guess is that it was not making much money.

Btw still room available in the schedule from ANR on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday... one more destination to be announced?

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

The flylanova project seems to be delayed and still under development. Start date for Antwerp operation now showing as beginning of summer season 2019. It also seems they have a bigger interest in Antwerp since VLM stopped the operations. I wonder if they are one of the bidders for some parts of VLM...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

There are more interested companies in SHS/VLM Antwerp than expected. From an initial 15 there remain about 10 now. This is why the liquidators have not made a decision on a deal yet. They will organise a bidding in the first two weeks of October. Both Belgian and British companies are expected to m...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

It is actually shocking to read what is going on between those 2 VLMs. My fears is that Harm Prins will in the end kill both companies. At the moment he seems to be playing a game to get the profitable parts of VLM Antwerp for free in return for dropping some legal claims against SHS Aviation. The l...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

There are many ways of taking over a company. You can take it all including the debts or you can only take a (profitable) part. There will be indeed many accumulated debts from the last two years. If someone is going to take some parts, it will be the healthy parts (charter ops or just the AOC). The...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

From what I understood is that VLM is not bankrupt yet. They decided to liquidate the company. This means as far as I know that the AOC is suspended, but not yet cancelled like it was last time. If there is a serious investor who wants to move fast, VLM could be operational rather soon than late. Pe...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

There are only 2 options for a real LCY operation: BA and Flybe. They would be able to offer some connections too. My preference would be to have BA on the route as is feels like a real business airline at LCY. What I expect is to see Flybe operated by an Eastern Airways Saab 2000. Eastern have a Sa...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

What's the difference between "good fares" to ZRH and "rather low fares" to MUC? Wasn't it 59eur one way for both? Which seems to be cheap compared to SN. SN/LH has 7 flights/day to MUC, Swiss has 5 daily flights to ZRH, so why can't VLM make both routes work... Starting fare is indeed 59 EUR for b...

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

Those are dramatic cutbacks, are they? I think it was a correct decision to put VLM back on track before they go down like they did last time. From what I have been reading is that they had to reduce their fleet to 4 from 5 F50 since one aircraft became simply to old to operate/repair in the near fu...
