Welcome to Aviation24.be, bristol411.

I guess that BRU-BRS with small planes is more expensive to operate (per passenger) than BRU-LHR with A320 aircraft.

Since SN has no longer AR8 aircraft, who is the operator?
The SN website shows AR8 equipment and they are the operator.In the past SN, FlyBe and BMI all used "small" aircraft including RJ146 with good load factors .....so as they say in the US "Go figure" ...
No AR8 in SN fleet. So...CityJet as operator ?

EIRJO has been used on CPH route 2 weeks ago (I caught it), but I'm not up to date if they continued for a while after.

Due to capacity restrictions at DXB -> ongoing runway works

Finnair A350 become more and more rare at BRU, last time it came was on April 6, but they were supposed to fly every Saturday with this type, while we see it replaced by A333 (sometimes Marimekko) or A321.

As long as I can get far in the messages, we knew since February that TUI was going to cancel the route as from Sept., I thought Av24 had made an article about it.

Well, today Brussels Airport welcomed its first flight from Tallinn operated by AirBaltic using Airbus A220-300, excuse me Bombardier CSeries CS300, 3 flights per week. Nothing compared to the 9 flights per week of Nordica / LOT.
Good to see these A223 at Brussels, I would like to see them more. Even at Paris CDG or Amsterdam, it is rare to see them more than once during a day of spotting.

Capacity-wise, airBaltic adds 870 seats a week (based on 145 seats per flight) on the Tallinn-Brussels route in addition to Nordica's 1 584 seats (based on 88 seats per flight). If you ask me, airBaltic will increase the number of flights rapidly when 1) figures are satisfying and 2) they have the aircraft available.

Vilnius next?

As from 1st of July, flights of Nordica from TLL are now operated by LOT and no more by Nordica.

Flight numbers are the same.

That would be interesting to see LOT aircraft (except CR7&9) at TLL.
