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

LOT is filling the gap left a few years ago by Malev between BUD BRU vv. But their flights overlap/duplicate to some extent those offered by SN. I don't really see the point, but perhaps I'm missing something. Ironically, some of the SN flights will be operated with Czech Airlines metal :? Dear Ans...

Re: BRU: Building 4 collapsed

Building 4 is the new building which will be used for the administration departments of Brussels Airport. This is a former building next to the Skyhall. You cannot see this building from the landside as it is located at the airside. This is one of the last parts from that side which are completely r...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Indeed nothing is to be expected from LH. the Chinese tourists will keep on coming to Europe, there is certainly room for more connections to other "less known" cities (Chengdu, Tianjin, Guanghzou, Xiamen, Qingdao...); all have bigger population than Paris, Berlin... We had in the past China Easter...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance and Oneworld under one roof?

Very ambitious projects for once! Let's hope some of them materialize in the near future. The whole Vision 2040 is very ambitious I would say. Finally an airport management who has the guts to reveal great plans for the future, with more terminals, piers, longer runways, more pax, etc etc They had ...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

A few years ago there was a rumour on this forum that the station would be expanded to 10 (!) platforms... Don't know what happened... That is indeed still the case. A huge expansion of the train station under the airport and this indeed with 10 platforms. But it will be in phases of course. This a...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

TGV/ Eurostar connections easy to realize from BRU. Perhaps not so easy as implied: with its measly three platforms, the railway station is close to maximum capacity. It must be said, though, that this is at least partly due to its use as a terminal station: some trains occupy the platforms much lo...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Hi JOVAN, thank you for your nice add. LH, CS, said even in own words that they don't want BRU to grow further bcs it's a rival in their backyard. If OW would want to grow at BRU, maybe with BRU acting as a reliever hub for LHR with BA starting an hourly shuttle service between BRU and LHR, update ...

Brussels Airport (BRU): Star Alliance and Oneworld under one roof?

Maybe not in the right topic but still about the future of BRU. Maybe it is a time to caress more and to tight the bound with OneWorld at Brussels Airport. As we know since the acquisition of SN by LH, it is horribly quiet around Star Alliance and their expansion. Brussels Airport is the 5th biggest...

As announced already earlier I think, Sichuan Airlines Cargo will start cargo flights to Brussels Airport as from the end of April with 3 flights a week with the new A330F. In 2020 they will increase the number of flights to 6 a week. While we see a decrease in integrator, e.g. DHL, because the volu...

Re: Air traffic control service skeyes to strike in the evening and night of 12 March

It is the highest time to start privatising Skyeyes. This goes only about their own benefits, political games (bcs management is elected via politics). The airport, airlines, passengers has completely nothing to do with it. Our image abroad is already very below zero point and we are seen in Belgium...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

LH is extremely happy with very good cargo results in Africa due to the integration of Brussels Airlines Cargo in LH Cargo. So, LH has the benefits but is still refusing in helping SN when they have difficulties with the A330 or even no new airplanes for them. Swiss Air story...... https://www.cargo...

Let’s raise our critical voices once again. I Is BRU brewing on something big (LATAM, Norwegian...) or what are we experiencing? What do you think about these thoughts? Am I too negative?

Timothyevert says that he read somewhere a potential long haul base of Norwegian at Brussels. A quote would be good.

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

AMS AND LHR are full. Both can only grow in number of pax by changing into bigger planes but not everybody is doing this. Yet the movements at BRU declined last year with important competitors having no capacity. That’s disappointing, especially becausing this situation will only last a limited tim...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

Interesting isn't? AI not allowed to fly to BRU... The idea of an alliance (Star Alliance) is basically a cover up. It is similar to Turkish Airlines; they are part of THY and they basically steal PAX from all the members of the alliance. Star Alliance's members are basically protecting each of the...
