There are all the summer destination of Thomas Cook like Ohrid, Tivat, Gerona, Reus, Menorca, the Greek island etc... plus of course the organic growth of Brussels Airlines

If SN intended to use 11 aircraft at the same time in BRU next year, can the growth of the long-haul network from BRU next spring or summer be considered ?
Among other factors, surely depending from the end of the leasing contracts of the older A330 ?
Any information about the end of these contracts ? Thanks.
Cheers

Regarding the A319/A320 I think they really need the additional aircraft since they take over many (all) summer destinations of TC. So in summer that is more than the 2 additional planes + the organic (own) growth ...

I would rather say they need some special 'arrangements' with other companies to fill the gap and also EW to help them out e.g. on the Berlin-Brussels route.

I would also not be surprised that they use their A330 (some of the new ones) to fly to European routes such as 1) Tenerife, 2) Heraklion and ...

Yes I know I have a lot of imagination, but still I think it is possible :D

Why not? An A330 in an all-economy configuration could be useful: today there were 2 SN flights to Marsa Alam and 2 to Hurghada; surely no business class pax on those. :)

Interesting discussion: any news on what bru.air entends to do with 4 additional A320 next year, because that's a serious capacity increase, taking into account there are no more AVRO jets to replace?
Or are they going to replace older/smaller A319 with them?
Thank you.
Look's like the new narrow bodies joing the fleet are A320 only so my guess is they'll only aquire A320 or even A321 from AB for the busy summer routes while they can use it for TLV during winter

Not immediately the youngest birds, but still: there is some expansion of the fleet and that's a positive fact.

at least they're younger than the previous ex Air Berlin's ;)
OO-SNA (1441)
OO-SNB (1493)
OO-SNC (1797)
OO-SND (1838)

btw 1961 is the oldest from Air Berlin but when looking at pictures on google it looks like it's fitted with a Wifi Antenna

The 4 A319s (OO-SSA / B / D / N) go back to the lessor soon or will they stay in the fleet for a long time? Because SN will much increase its network in the summer of 2018 with the new destinations of Thomas Cook ! Thx :-)
