Brussels Airport intends to increase the tax on highly polluting aircraft in order to discourage companies from flying old aircrafts to Brussels, according to the company CEO.

That's why we are a team, if a few admins can't write correctly or are drunk, the other members are still there :lol:

Just kidding;

About highly polluting aircraft, Brussels has still A300F of DHL, but being replaced, A310 (becomes more and more rare; as Air Transat is replacing as well), A340 not at BRU.

707,717,727 not at BRU; 737 as from -600 for Tunisair, still 752/753 of Icelandair coming...

A few daily flights are still operated with +20yo of service.

What will say Mister Trump with its Boeing VC-25A ? :lol:

Any more details about the replacement of DHLs 757 / A300?
I only see 1 A330 flying LOS-BRU-LEJ-BRU-LOS (almost) daily.
More A330s To come? Or other types?
Maybe I missed something on this forum on this matter...

Thanks,
Pijaleu
