Re: Air Antwerp in 2020

VLM was the only one who was very successful at Antwerp with many routes. They made more than 8 years in a row profit. It went wrong as from the moment that foreign investors showed up.

For the same reason that EI-EIM passed through BRU previously? Technical modifications by LH Technik?

Re: Brucargo 2019: cargo routes & news

A source states that Atlas Air will no longer operate to BRU. Their last flight would have been on May 14. Ethiopian Cargo is mentioned to take over the traffic.

It's sad to lose another 747 operator, after also Saudia completely disappeared from BRU earlier this year.
