Bcube who will bring new customers, I am told.

Will be interesting to see if Egyptair will switch to Bcube soon.
If they do then its the end of ASO as we know it.
Pax handling on such a small airport isn't profitable.
It will be up to EGIS to provide passengerhandling.

Have I missed something?
VLM planned the OST-MAN route but they went bust.

And another presscoverage of the inaugural flight of POBEDA to Ostend - Bruges .
https://www.hln.be/regio/oostende/video ... ~a7dae0e4/

Summary:
182 incoming passengers and 105 outgoing on the first flight. Next saturday : 150 expected on both incoming and outgoing flights. Pobeda is very pleased with the initial response on this new route and already thinking to increase frequency to 6 flights a week! Well, at the least the start is not bad. Nice for OST-airport.

Maybe POBEDA should consider also flights to/fm Saint-Petersburg?
As from 1st June 2019, Pobeda will reduce Moscow-Eindhoven from 4 per week to 2 per week.

As from 25/05, Pobeda will reduce Moscou-Oostende(Brugge) from 3 a week to 2 a week.
The Thursday flight will be cancelled until 15-09.
After 15/09 they will be going back to 3 flights a week.

This is due to the start of the summerseason wlth seasonal flights to popular holiday resorts.

So no panic, figures are still excellent for this new route.

BCUBE officials were at the airport today to announce their plans.
Looking at the (nearly) brandnew groundequipmentl they have, some AP(OAS) staff will be jealous...lol

If you call a good news the arrival of an outdated, noisy and fuel guzzling aircraft to an airport, just for the sake of pleasing the spotters, there's a problem somewhere...

I think you should read mopa9000's message again, because you obviously didn't pay attention to what he actually wrote.
