Interesting article, although I must point out I'm not normally a Daily Mail reader!

Re: VLM/Cityjet abandons Antwerp-Frankfurt

Why don't they fly from Antwerp to CDG (or AMS, although I know this is only 1h45mins away by train) and feed AF/KLM and other SkyTeam partners? Seems logical to me... pls explain!

Civil aviation consultancies

Hi there,

I hoping someone might be able to help me...

I'm looking for civil aviation consultancies for help on a couple of capacity building projects in the sector.

Does anyone know of, or able to recommend (preferably European) consultancies in this sector?

Thanks in advance!

Re: New LCT at Brussels Airport opens 25 October 2009

If you've got a 400 EUR (charleroi) fee vs. a 500 EUR (BRU) fee for the same destination (not necessarily the same airport), people will fly intercontinental out of Charleroi. I think it's just a matter of time. +25 euros baggage surcharge both ways, +a cramped rude bus service return to CRL for €4...

Re: The future of Brussels Airlines with Lufthansa

Meanwhile, the cooperation with Lufthansa is being stepped up even further with the addition of 2 new codeshare agreements on those routes where SN and LH weren't codesharing yet: i.e MUC and MXP. As of next week, SN will move to terminal 2 in MUC (i.e. the STAR alliance terminal) and so it can cod...

I hope some business men have the idea to open a new BELGIAN low cost company! (together with some belgian pilots/cabin crew) Good luck to them! Realistically now's not the time to start an LCC; there"ll be consolidation in the market, partnerships or mergers between existing LCCs (SkyEurope/M...

When is the new LCC terminal due to open? Do we know which airlines will operate from it, to where and how often? Do Brussels Airport have any guarantees that easyJet will expand their network from Brussels?

Why do people think they would change the name? They've not changed the name of Swiss, and I doubt they'll change Austrian Airlines to anything else. They established Lufthansa Italia from scratch.

Almost missed a flight on Friday morning at 7am here to Vienna -> meant I had no time to shop as I had hoped to (airport shops can't be very happy!). BRU must fix this asap.
