Re: 2017 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Powdair update today: Sion to Antwerp with be operated by CRJ200 (50 seats). Frequency increases from 4 to 5 weekly, extra flight on Sundays. And Antwerp will indeed be operated the whole year and not winter seasonal only. I just hope they will offer some lower fares. Now they are just too expensive...

I find it strange that the (new) Airport website is not mentioning the Skywork Airlines flights... It seems that SkyWorkAirlines doesn't offer Antwerp anymore: https://flyskywork.com/flight-schedule Flight information - Flight schedules - Our flights 2017/2018 We fly you to the European cities Amst...

Re: Air Belgium: a rebirth?

On their website they write 'Non-stop flights from Belgium
Don't wait around. You can enjoy swift direct flights to far away destinations such as Brussels to Hong Kong.'

Sounds like Brussels will be their base

Other airlines do it as well: an example is Alitalia; flying many Irish registered planes... so doesn't seem to be an issue.

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2017

The way they hire their pilots is very frustrating indeed for experienced pilots like me who would like to join them. On the other hand have they offered many pilots their first jobs. The terms and conditions are what they are and it is up to the pilots to accept them. What I find annoying is that t...

Re: 2017 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

It is a Belgian problem. Was at Charleroi Airport on Monday and got a very bad attitude from the people there as well. They refuse to speak any other language than French, not even English. This is just not acceptable when you work in an airport, but it is unfair to say it is only a problem at Antwe...

Re: VLM Airlines news 2017

With Cityjet downsizing at LCY I think it is just a matter of time before they stop the flights to ANR. Theye want to become a wet lease provider, not the other way around. Jetairfly 3 times weekly or a new VLM at 2 (?) daily to BER or MIL is not the same. And at that time a price war was going on b...

Two corrections: ANR-RTM-HAM and ANR-MUC and not MBX.

The plan from ANR kind of makes sense to me: HAM, BER, PRG, MUC, ZRH, MIL, LCY and MAN scheduled. JER and BIQ during weekends? Plus 2 F50s for Vizionair...

Re: VLM Airlines news 2017

If you have a look at their presentation you can see their planned network including routes from ANR and OST. You can also read that they plan to have 2 AOCs: one in Belgium and one with 320 and 330 in Slovenia.
