A pointer from Knack points towards a statement from Belgium's communist party: the PTB/PVDA demands the nationalisation of both Brussels Airport ànd Brussels Airlines. Maria Vindevoghel for president!
De PVDA vindt dat er in België plaats is voor een luchthaven en een Belgische luchtvaartmaatschappij die in handen zijn van de samenleving. Liefst in samenwerkingsverband met maatschappijen van andere Europese landen. De PVDA wil van Zaventem een sterk democratisch en publiek bedrijf maken, met een eigen luchtvaartmaatschappij en een luchthaven, gericht op de toekomst. Gedaan met geldkoe te spelen voor kapitaalgroepen die niet denken aan het belang van werknemers en passagiers. Een publiek bedrijf is de beste garantie voor jobbehoud, goede werkomstandigheden, een betere veiligheid en een visie op lange termijn om de ecologische omslag te starten.

Pour le PTB, il y a de la place en Belgique pour un aéroport et une compagnie aérienne belges aux mains de la collectivité. De préférence en coopération avec des entreprises d'autres pays européens. Le PTB veut faire de Zaventem une société publique et démocratique forte, avec sa propre compagnie aérienne et son aéroport, tournée vers l'avenir. Fini de jouer à la vache à lait pour les groupes de capitaux qui ne tiennent pas compte des intérêts des employés et des passagers. Une entreprise publique est la meilleure garantie pour le maintien de l'emploi, de bonnes conditions de travail, une meilleure sécurité et une vision à long terme pour la transition écologique.

It is indeed strange to see the Bombardier CRJ programme under the Mitsubishi name. But Bombardier sold the whole product line to the Japanese!

Just like the Airbus A220 took some time getting used to, I’m sure in a few months nobody will bat an eye for the Mitsubishi CRJ series.

Surprising to see how easy it is to get in and out of the airport grounds in Van Nuys.
