In their 2018 activity report, they even mention a change in flight procedures. I don't know what they mean !
I heard FedEx asked for SID changes at LGG. The current SID's are (to say the least) completely inefficient, probably even more in the eyes of americans ;)

Icelandair Cargo signed an agreement with FedEx and TNT, by which it will significantly increase its frequency to daily flights at Liege Airport.

That would be in contradiction with the environmental policy used so far by Sowaer and Walloon Region. One single departure route to minimize noise disturbances with soundproofing measures for local residents !

I don't think FedEx cares at all about this :(

Doesn't european law require an environmental study now prior to change departure routes at airports ? I think I saw a statement of Minister Bellot recently about that for departure routes from BRU.
Or maybe FedEx tries to have those LGG departure routes changed before that law !

I suppose tons of € will be spent on studies, indeed !
FedEx probably knows how complicated things can be in Belgium, in the mean time.

Although SID’s usually don’t have to be flown entirely, fuel still has to be loaded accordingly, and that’s a lot more than what you need in reality. Making these SID’s more efficient (or closer to what is flown in reality) would mean loads of fuel saved on every single departure.

It's not only the French-speaking press, but it's also Icelandair Cargo itself on its LinkedIn account !!!

I guess its just a small increase in capacity, maybe replacing the 757 by 767
The PR is free publicity right ?
Iceland press was first, 2 days ago
https://www.mbl.is/vidskipti/frettir/20 ... ex_og_tnt/

And the idiots of the belgian press converted that into a scoop... "icelandair débarque à Liège"
Icelandair is one of the oldest client of Liege.

Noticed QR8302/A7BFC from ORD to OST. Is it a new test or traffic taken from LGG ?
