Re: BRU Winter 2020-2021: news, new routes, airlines

Just like to say I was very happy to hear of this new route announcement (given my user name :-) It has been many years since Air Mauritius stopped their direct connection to BRU. I used to hope SN might try MRU with TNR...but maybe it was a bit of a fantasy! I hope Air Belgium's venture works out....

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

No idea if it was mentioned already but The States just decided to prolong the travel restrictions for Europeans till the end of the year.

At the same time Europe is also working on restrictions for Americans as from 1st July

Re: BRU Winter 2020-2021: news, new routes, airlines

Bad indeed after so much and so long effort.
But OK, it's not lost. They only postpone it. A new route cost really a lot of money. SIA is also hit badly and the load would not be good now.

So, patience again

Re: Air Belgium in 2020

Hi, High chances that Air Mauritius will be alive from september.... But as there are no direct flights to MRU from Belgium I only see more people from France flying on the cheap via BRU. Love see trying this but more practical from CRL then no ? BRU more for the Dutch and their Antillen ... Nice f...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

BTW this Mr Thiele, I don't know if he has a problem wit OS and SN, but he has for sure a problem with CS. According to Thiele CS didn't do enough to keep the boat off from the German government. So in case off, his position is also not sure anymore

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Anyway nationalising Brussels airlines is a plausible solution point! I think everything is on the table now. In this case you can't have only a plan A but also a plan B AND a plan C Something else which can be important. In case that the government will not make it and new elections will be, and i...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

The government is not handing out 290 or 390 million euros, depending on the sources. It is a loan that will have to be repaid. Repayment might be difficult, but in the 2008 crisis, it has been shown that the government made big profits on its investments in financial companies. Why not again in av...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Let's all hope that they will succeed bcs otherwise BRU will be a dessert. If BRU turns into a dessert, I bet it's a waffle with strawberries and whipped cream ! Unless you meant 'desert'... By the way, aren't you the same person who (in another topic) was happy to see Wizzair leave BRU and is afra...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

Silence is the best now for the negotiations. Leaks to the press, fake or not fake, is only to make the pressure higher and lead to one party to make the decision faster. Some people think that it will be so easy to start again. It's not. Forget about Air Belgium and SN together. Look who are the sh...

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

Wizzair will end BUD-BRU route on June 30, all flights to Belgium will now again be concentrated in CRL. https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/wizz-air/wizz-air-leaves-brussels-airport-after-barely-one-month-of-operations/ ;) Not so bad.

Re: Brucargo 2020: cargo routes & news

The number of cargo flights, via pax planes, slowly start to decrease already this month. Also the number of full freighters. With soon the opening of the European borders and next month the external borders, it is not interesting anymore to fly those extra flights. In a couple of days it can be aga...

Re: Impact of the coronavirus crisis on aviation

No idea if it was posted already, but TUI informed that they don't need the Belgian state aid anymore. Reason for this is that they received it on groups level in Germany. So TUI can work further as they have now enough funds. But TUI Fly stated also that in case the competition, in Belgium, like SN...

They don't want to do it now, bcs no air traffic, but on the moment that air traffic will start again. Well, this is mean, extremely mean. For my part it can be done by the ...
