18 : TUI fly Belgium starts Innsbruck INN
TUIfly Belgium spokeswoman Sarah Saucin told me that the Innsbruck flights, initially transferred from Antwerp to Brussels, would be cancelled altogether until 15 February. They could then relaunch from Antwerp if the sanitary situation improves.
Indeed, they are no more in the booking sys for a while but at least the info is confirmed.

Not a total ban. Diplomats, air and ocean crews, dual-citizens and those citizen of one and legal resident of the other side of the Atlantic can travel. Waivers are also granted on multiple grounds, e.g. compassionate to visit dying close relative or attend their funeral, academic for holders of student visa issued before pandemic, etc. i think company transfers can also fly.

Not a ton of people still, but planes aren't exactly full either.

Hello,

Swiss come back with a340/777/a330 at BRU.
From January 15th until the end of March 2021. Flights are scheduled at 6pm for arrival (LX788) and 8pm for departure (LX789).

Unfortunately we are still in December and at 6 pm it is dark. Hopefully in March it will be better
