It is quite pityful to see that the biggest city of Flanders, which is so proud of its harbour, diamond industry, chemical industry, its mayor ... is not able to make even a small airport liveable; and not able to attract or establish and make survive an airline with business connections.

The peope from 't Stad(t) call the rest of Flanders the "Parking"... Quite typical for their arrogance.
The "Parking" has been subsidizing everything in 't Stad(t) for decades.
Thanks to investors from the Far West of Flanders they have no a decent football team in the 1st league.
And something that looks like a real stadium.

Wake up Antwerp and make us proud, if you can...

(CRL and Liege can...)

But is there a market for travelers from Antwerp (or Belgium in general) to Belfast City, Edinburgh, Exeter and Jersey, willing to pay the price of a stopover at LCY?
Reverse that question: are ppl in Edinburgh, exeter etc interested to fly to antwerp???? I think when considering routes, there needs to be a mutual interest.

Most stupid and irrelevant post in this entire threat, and besides that... way off topic as well.
Could the mod please have a look at this nonsense!

+1,
never heard the term “parking”
The (t) is quite insulting indeed, may I suggest member Jovan edit their post?

Hm, he could also learn some manners and polite language, of course. Even better, to remain factual and on-topic. But everybody has the right to commit a mistake.

And then again, there is some bottom of truth under all that uncouth language: it is quite a bit of a shame that a city like Antwerp has trouble to keep up its airport and at least one airline.

Antwerp is so great, its citizens don't have that much of a need to fly abroad. That's why Antwerp-based airlines are having such hard times. If you live on the parking, off course you want to fly away as far as possible :lol:

I think some details went lost in translation.
There is nothing funny about Jovan’s insulting post.
Bad humour should have no place in this forum.

Interesting to learn this application process went really fast, compared to that of Air Belgium and SHS/VLM...

And, moreover, there is a codeshare with KLM, so it should help a lot to get the airplane as full as possible!
The hours of the flights are just perfect, I will spend many weekends in London I feel... :-)

What are the benefits of the codeshare besides selling tickets on the klm.com-website and earning skyteam-points?
