Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

The BRU 2040 project is still on the table, of course. Nothing is changed. We don't know for sure that they will do with SN/EW on the European market, how much and what kind of product. We don't know about the long haul plans about Africa and NA or will there be even more long haul. With this German...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

With less competition on the market, exit Jet Airways, it would be good if AC could consider to open a new Canadian destination ex-BRU. Vancouver was/is already for a long time on the wish list. Even it is very expensive and to get a job there, you really need to have the good "joker card", it is st...

Re: BRU Summer 2020: news, new routes, airlines

Hi Lucas, That will be indeed an interesting case to follow. If they want to maintain BRU still as the fifth biggest Star hub, then AC should fly from both cities to BRU. If they axe one of the cities, then you know it. But even, the TS was seasonal, AC could use smaller metal on it year round At th...

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

As Air Canada and Air Transat are both flying to AMS and BRU, we will see in the future how it will look like. Still both as a separate entity or as one company. For BRU it will not make a huge difference bcs Air Canada and Air Transat are flying from different cities No ! AC is flying to BRU from ...

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

The ANVR, The Netherlands, stated that leisure flights for AMS are very important. Leisure flights are more or less 60% of the traffic at AMS. There is a balance between business and leisure on many of the destinations to/from AMS. Without leisure it would not be possible to maintain many of those f...

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. One of the reasons is bcs BRU...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Exactly. This shows now who is not willing to find a solution but only to hurt the economy, image of Belgium, but only thinking about their own profit. If the management wants to offer meetings with smaller groups then they offer you something. But you just ignored that and going on a wild cat strik...

Re: The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

Hainan had a thought/plan to open the first European base in BRU with flights from China to the US. But it never happened. But ok, at this moment they have three Chinese flights to BRU. Conditions to that was also to have an own hotel for the Chinese tourist and a big Chinese bank. Those two happene...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

This is a disaster, I can tell you. No need to mention politics bcs it will be elections, so they will not involve now. It will be for the next one. But such actions you simply can't explain to foreign airlines companies anymore, we used all credibility. Even the current airlines at BRU and LGE are ...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Well, they can take action as long as they want, soon it is not needed anymore to have many of them. And very high time to let do the traffic control by other countries Airline companies have enough of flying to Belgium bcs of the many strikes. This costs them tons of money on top of the very high c...

The change of the worldwide aviation landscape

2018 was a record for many airlines and airports. 2019 was looking promising with some new positive changes. But in meantime it all changed. You can't predict aviation for the next 6 months and certainly not for the next year. That's why it is very interesting to start up this new topic regarding th...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

That is indeed the case. It is not important what color is on the plane. But there is a real concern in this: 1) EW is not doing good, but in meantime they swallowed SN into them. What in case that they will stop with this project?? Then there will be even no airline anymore in BRU bcs SN is owned a...

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

Lufthansa is going to take over the flights from Star Alliance member LATAM between Muc and Sao Paulo. This is really bad luck for BRU again as a pax flight between BRU and Sao Paulo is now very unlikely as LH will not allow LATAM to fly to BRU now with pax The reason for this is much more simple t...

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

Well, there is a rationale behind it from their perspective. But trying to send everyone to MUC or FRA (horrible place), is not going to work though. Sending people from BRU, ARN or CPH to MUC, to send them all to GRU means they have to make a certain detour (time and money wise less interesting). ...

Staff shortage again and again? How the hell is skeyes managing its staff? Their HR manager should be fired on the spot! Although I have no special sympathy for Happart and Partoune, they are absolutely right: Liege Airport is sabotaged. They should start a suit against skeyes. Why only Liege Airpo...

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

LH sees SN and BRU as a big obstacle. They best way for them was to take over SN. So one trouble less. With BRU they play it on the way to take as much as they can Star flights to their own airports in Germany. Well, there is a rationale behind it from their perspective. But trying to send everyone...
