Re: Flanders : Plane-pooling

My two cents:

The more efficient the planes become, the cheaper tickets become, the more people fly, the more fuel is burnt, the more emissions.
So more efficient planes cause more emissions.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

According to Flemish Newspaper "De Standaard", Brussels Airlines should become a smaller but more profitable company. However, no employees are to be fired.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

But if you want to expand in destinations/frequencies to such airports you can’t keep subcontracting. That makes sense as long as it’s a too small sub-fleet to operate yourself. In the US it's the most normal thing to subcontract everything under 100 seats... Example... https://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

They needed a reason to extend the runway, don't think anyone else was candidate to play such a role.
Sometime I think the airport is there to give work to the local general contractors...

KLM already offers Thalys-tickets from Antwerp (ZWE) to AMS. As it's more KLM supporting this than AirFrance, I don't think ANR-CDG will be a thing very soon (and ANR-AMS neither).
I thought they were one company..

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Because for travelling to CDG - either from Brussels or from Antwerp - the Thalys/TGV is already offering good service? Generally, I think feeder flights cannot be a prime business case; point to point traffic should be the aim. Because as far as I know the Thalys goes to Paris-Nord and not to CDG....
