Flying direct routes in stead of triangle flight
thanks for this feedback, I didn't know this change/advantage was made possible since the introduction of the E190 (out of BRU).

To which the Group might reply: fly a 737-800 once a week instead of an E190 twice a week ;)
exactly my thoughts :-)

And today I got the confirmation that the E190 sub-fleet is there to stay, in order to cater to the specific needs of Belgium, and in particular ANR.
Very good news!! Thanks André, for chasing this last bid of information :-)

Sure. Why not ordering 10 787's to replace the 737's and fly once a week to each destination, then? :roll:
Be serious for a second, guys...

The E190's were ordered initially for the reasons pilot_gent explained.
Then, the ANR operations began and are a big success today.

Why would the TUI group cancel all that? Every airline in the group still has power enough to decide what they want to do, and I think TUI Belgium has been smart enough since day 1 to know how to make profit...

TUI's operations from ANR (and OST) are successfull for the two figures: load factor ànd yield. Tourists are willing to pay more to have an easier departure and return: closeby and with a reduced waiting time.

Sure, there have been some operational issues with the ERJ's. But because of the high yield, TUI won't give them up.

well, joking apart, when the - 700's will have gone from the fleet, future fleet entry level (MAX8) capacity will be 27% higher than today. Not a dramatic strategy change, so no systematic frequency halvation to be expected ;) , but destinations with suboptimal LF, might become destinations with problematic LF overnight.

I've witnessed so many corporate decisions because of "not invented here", "if it's not from manufacturer xyz then it's no good", "can't stand it that we didn't come up with that idea", etc. Of course nicely presented in a PowerPoint full of fake news and of course without any of the argument examples I gave.

I strongly hope this will remain so for many years to come (and I won't mention SNurowings)

And their numbers are still growing. And speaking for ANR, it's a 'Ryanair free'* airport!!! (for once I'm grateful the Germans built the runway too short :D ). *meaning free of R. , and not free for R. as it usually is

According to this article (Dutch) the new 737 MAX of TUI fly will have no inflight screens anymore as opposed to their current fleet. :shock:
As an aviation enthusiast I really liked to fly TUI because they have inflight screens on (almost) all their flights, not so for movies, but most of all for the moving map and inflight info.
(...)
Will there be Wi-Fi on board and possibilities to charge your device and/or some kind of inflight entertainment on their 737MAX?
I asked the question and got a reply: Passengers will be able to see the moving map and other IFE on their own devices thanks to an on board server.
Any news on the status of this?
Can anyone confirm or deny regarding the Wi-Fi, IFE, moving map on their new fleet?
Maybe some forum members flew the 737MAX this summer?

OO-JPT has been ferried to Hannover today and is removed from the Belgian register. Will she go back to TUIfly Germany?

No, I guess you overlooked 2012: she was first registered in Belgium for Jetairfly on 28/03/2012, transferred to TUIfly Germany in 2015. Was back in service with TUI Belgium from 06/2018, I assume it was just for the summer, as she is now again removed from the Belgian register.

Birdstrike at EBOS airport with a B737.
The captain decided to fly to BRU and passengers were transferred to a E190.

The passengers were on a 737 MAX 8 (OO-TMB) and were transferred in BRU onto a 737-700 (OO-JOS).

would be nice if on medium term (whenever the current lease contracts come to an end), they would consider leasing one or two E2's for their most noise sensitive Belgian operations (@ANR)

TUI fly Belgium operates many flights from French airports to tourist destinations. But TUI also has a French airline, Corsair International, that is has been trying to sell for many years.

Breakthrough: Intro Aviation (Germany), in partnership with US investment fund Crestline, will present their Corsair takeover plans this week to the airline’s parent TUI Group (Germany), as the shareholders of Loong Air (China) recently gave up on the acquisition of the French airline.

Corsair also announced it would get rid of its three B744s and replace them with 3 A330-900neos.

TUI Group (Germany) plans to renew its fleet by firming 50 B737 MAX options, as rising oil prices begin to push weaker rivals to the wall. TUI is switching to more of the -10 variant to boost capacity, and is also evaluating the so-called B797. The new MAX aircraft will replace almost all of its short-haul fleet. TUI may also seek more used B787s if the B797 is a no-go.

Correction: Nador goes to 3 flights per week, not 4. So no doubling but still increase of frequency.
And flights to INN will go from 2 to 3 times per week for the last 6 weeks of the winter schedule (peak season for ski holidays).
At least some good news for ANR after VLM ‘debacle’.
