Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

https://mobilit.belgium.be/sites/default/files/DGLV/be.mg_.28.pdf It's something but it isn't the AOC (yet). It even specifically says "This approval does not constitute an authorization to operate the types of aircrafts referred in paragraph 1. The authorization to operate the aircraft is the Air ...

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

You don't need an AOC to register a plane. The sole things needed to register a plane are valid paperwork (concerning that particular plane). If you personally (or through a company/organisation) want to register a plane and you have valid paperwork for set plane there's nothing that limits the BCAA...

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

and will be arriving shortly, SNM is in EW colors tho... so probably they’ll repaint it into SN as it would be to soon to have a EW branded plane in BRU ... Probably, unless they'll like to add some fuel on the fire... Maybe one of them will have the Smurfs theme? When was that going to be unveiled?

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

It's the same administration, the BCAA, that delivers the registrations and the AOCs. One can hope that their people speak to each other. The problem is, even though it's the same administration, there is no legal groundwork available to refuse one a registration. While the BCAA can withhold an AOC...

Or perhaps it indicates they're in a hurry to get operations going, considering outward show secondary?
Seems that approximately 2 years of time isn't enough to get an airplane painted :mrgreen:

Anyway, I'm glad they didn't paint it due to the incorrect order of colours :mrgreen:

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

If a first plane arrives, I guess it will bring certification if they need one ;) They can have planes without an AOC. You don't need an AOC to lease/own/rent a plane, you need an AOC for commercial operations with the aircrafts. If they have licensed pilots they can even take them out for a spin a...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Does Star Alliance really need to ask any company to be its member? I'm afraid it works different, the company has to do its best to be able to become a member and as Eurowings is not a member of this alliance it is obvious they will do everything to keep SN as a member of Star Alliance. That way t...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

But what does that mean? Could still mean it is the HQ of a company flying out of Dusseldorf Well, currently EW doesn't fly long haul, they subcontract it to other companies who fly on behalf of EW.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

So, basically it means that Brussels Airlines will get eventually a bunch of long haul planes on the Belgian register and the Belgian AOC but all painted in the EW colours. This way they can eliminate all other external leases and use the EW AOC for a short haul fleet. But I still haven't read anyth...
