On my side, like for most of use, 2020 was a very poor year. Being in the category of people at risk, I stopped flying as soon as the coronavirus hit Belgium and Europe. I had to cancel many flights that were duly booked, and I am still waiting for some refunds and for opportunities to use vouchers received in compensation (after I am vaccinated though).

Thus, here is the small list of my 2020 flights:

Flown:

BRU-MXP FR 738 EI-FZL
MXP-BRU SN 319 OO-SSO
CRL-BRI FR 738 EI-EVI
BRI-BGY FR 738 EI-DLE
BGY-CRL FR 738 EI-FRX
BRU-WAW LO E75 SP-LIA
WAW-BRU LO 738 SP-LWE (NextGen Airways livery)
BRU-LIS TP 320 CS-TNT
LIS-FAO TP 321 CS-TJF (changed from A320)
FAO-LIS TP 319 CS-TTO
LIS-BRU TP 320 CS-TNW
BRU-ANR JNL ER4 PH-DWA (demo flight, the only "Covid" flight)

Cancelled:

BRU-RIX BT 223
RIX-TXL BT 223 cancelled and replaced by RIX-SXF FR 738, also cancelled
TXL-BRU SN 319 cancelled and replaced by SXF-BRU FR 738 (not cancelled, but unable to catch it, thus not refunded)
BRU-MAD IB 320
MAD-BRU IB 359 supposed to join the avgeek crowd
CRL-SKG FR 738 (avgeek trip)
SKG-CRL FR 738 (avgeek trip)

This year was also very quiet on my side, no surprise. Only 9 sectors and only one new airport (BTS), and a lot of cancelations. Last flight was just before the lockdown, I don't have any plans for the foreseeable future...
