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

Fair enough, kzaant, no worries. Still, info from @Atlantis is usually quite dependable, I seem to understand this person works at the airport, possibly somewhere in the cargo business. You can't compare him/her to the "geeks" who indeed enjoy daydreaming - even if there's nothing wrong with that, ...

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

Nice to hear ideas on the expansion of BRU are materializing. Looking at Google images I see there are currently 6 stands west of Pier A, I guess remote stands mostly used by e.g. Ryanair. You could add another 3 further west until the Road/tunnel under the runway, to me the outer further extension...

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

Time to start part 4 where to place the airlines and Alliances under the big roof of BRU. As we discussed before which airlines and destinations we can expect, it is time to discuss where they will be in this whole picture. BTW some of the airlines/destinations which were discussed before are in th...

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

Why would an airport care about the alliances and their placement? The only reason would be to accommodate transferring passengers and limit their connection time. But having the connecting passengers walk through your revenue-generating mall, and on the other hand keeping Shengen/non-Shengen split...

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

It's really pity for the T gates ,so an ambitious plan and they will keep the T gates strange to me?! Out of LH to make it bigger or not for Brussels Airlines and the airport Africa is too important to leave them with this unfinished gates! Like I said earlier, everything depends also on what LH wi...

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

Some action and some movements are needed to take in the next coming years. It is now already that the A Pier is congested many times during the day. The B Pier is congested during the morning. But let us be honest, the B Pier is quite empty during the afternoon and evening. So there is the potentia...

All good plans, accept for the one highlighted about the T-gates... Does SN agree to this once temporary solution of the T-gates? Everyday again it's very busy and on red days even to the extreme. People are anxiously qeuing not knowing whether they can still catch their flight, people are cutting ...

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

Lots of ambition at Brussels Airport: that's the way to go. I am somewhat afraid by the fact that all piers will have both Schengen and non-Schengen flights. When you see the mess at the e-gates of pier B which is now exclusively non-Schengen, I fear a contamination of that mess spreading to all pi...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

As to the ground handling at BRU, someone here will know when the "licences" will be up for a new call of tenders. I'm not a lawyer, so I am wondering if a new call for tenders may demand that the offers will not lead to a deficit situation for the bidders and that the call fixes a minimum number o...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Tui indeed opened since last Friday 9th August their huge Tui desk in the Leisure Terminal. This one, 84 square meter, is much bigger than the previous one, around 54 Square meter before the attacks. This to facilitate also customers in case that something is happening with flights. This is an impor...

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

Will the B-pier be equiped with double loadbridges as well or will they replace 1 on 1 with just new bridges? Hi Conti764, In 2017 the Board decided to replace all 24 boarding and de boarding bridges at pier B. The total investment at that time was around 52 million euro. This to meet the demands o...

I got some exciting news about 2020 but i’m not 100% sure since it’s viavia I heard it from someone who knows someone working for BAC. Apparently Brussels Airport is working hard behind the scenes to attract new airlines! -we can welcome soon Asiana! -Singapore Airlines interested in starting a rou...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

Exactly. This is very very low of him to state this publicly. They had the choice and they choose CRL bcs of the money and Walloon government being involved but they had to take also all disadvantage like a short runway. So instead of playing the victim and blaming others, look first at your own dec...

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

Very pity about Cathay Pacific....knowing Air Belgium could not start the route because they where already flying it. At the end Brussels Airport will lose everything it's not so exiting at the end the new routes are more rumoured than real and Cathay is not doing well. Besides Asiana are even in a...

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

Exactly. That's why other destinations are in the picture to widen the portfolio. To add an other carrier on the already existing routes is suicide. It would not take long. The carriers who are in the picture are strong on their home base and serving others than what we have now
