I've seen this in Bruges in a Bank (Axa), When you have an appointment at the bank, you get a free ticket for 1h parking in "'t Zand". When leaving, you insert this 1h free ticket before paying and the 1h is deducted from whatever you need to pay...

It was already a couple of years ago, I don't know of they still do that...

Could be also a good system. Otherwise, you can get a whole day of free parking when only buying 1 coffee...

Hi,

Nice discussion but is this a 'horeca' forum... ?
Next discussion : which latte do you prefer ?
😂😂

Pity we still have no news about a ANR-LCY connection !
No flyBE ( little red ? ), TUI, BA, SN,EW ,...

Guess that route wasn't that attractive anyway...

The airport is as good as dead. Reason is there is almost no competiton at the airport as well. Flying group and ASL are running the show. So why not getting more anr based bizz operators? If you come by private jet, there is only 1 handler (FBO’s) while there should be more choice to choose from. Signature, Landmark and others are also better. Fueling, if i remember well, also 1 fueling company available. ANR could also be a great place for maintenance organisations for private jets. Why not trying to attract them? It has been proven that ANR is not really a place for scheduled flighs cause the routes are always cancelled after a while. Zurch, gva and others....it did not work!! ANR could be so much better as a bizz airport if they just would invest more in that direction and would not allow this monopoly at the airport.

"It has been proven that ANR is not really a place for scheduled flighs cause the routes are always cancelled after a while. "
TUI seems to be successful, even though they're changing their destinations regularly. And remember the ANR-LCY route has been very successful for a long time: don't confuse failing airlines with a failing airport.

"Reason is there is almost no competiton at the airport as well."
Although it's true that ANR is rather calm, I don't think this can be solved by adding another bizz operator, handling agent or fueling agent: there's just not enough traffic to allow a second party to be succesfull. Compared to the BelAir-discussion above: apparently not enough passengers/visitors to keep one brasserie alive, adding a second one just for competition isn't going to help either.

I think ANR will profit most from (another, besides TUI) reliable airline, offering a decent (may be short) list of destination and certainty for the long term: that will in return attract other traffic (including bizz) and create opportunities for service providers, both airside and landside.

The news today is that there is no buyer for VLM, no one willing to invest in an airline based at ANR to lay their hands on a Belgian AOC and - after more than three months - no one brave enough to fly to London City from Antwerp. https://www.tijd.be/ondernemen/luchtvaa ... n/10075390

The Belgian AOC of VLM expires today, thus the value of the airline has become nil (except for the last 3 aircraft and parts that were sold to Swedish Amapola)

Well, stop saying 'Antwerp Airport', OK !?
The 'Antwerp Flanders International Airport' is offering again an air-side bus transfer between the terminal and the plane on rainy days. With VLM gone, the TUIFlys & the Stobarts manage most of the time to park in stand 113, which is about 2 bus-lengths away from the terminal building. So maybe getting more airliners based at ANR than buses, is more important... I know, in 6 month time it's 2 again 1 (planes versus buses)
