Air Belgium is to announce the new destination in end February, however, the airline denies that it will be Mauritius.
My guess: Réunion

Réunion, j'aime ton nom
Although Mauritius airports attract 3,7 mio PAX versus 2,4 PAX for St. Denis Réunion

It is 26 February 2020, so normally tomorrow, on Friday or on Saturday the new destination should be announced. I don't really know what it is, it will be a surprise (if it is not Mauritius...).

OO-ABE went already AOG at Warsaw, after some maintenance at Brussels yesterday.

There's no KF5961 flight in September due to bad weather in the Antilles at that period (via their FAQ).

AB operates a few flights (ACMI or Charter). ABA went on Saturday to PTP, to pick up passengers to FRA as KF4902. Now ABD and ABE are on their way to PTP, to repatriate 625 passengers.

ABD and ABE flew to PTP, then PUJ and finally CDG.

First repatriation flight happened today with the usual KF5961 flight, to be also operated on Thursday and Saturday at least, Friday flight not yet confirmed.

Air Belgium expects to restart on 2 May 2020.

According to FR24 OO-ABD left EBBR/BRU at 1358LT today.
Flew South at FL240 then, abeam Palma, descended probably towards DAAG/ALG Algiers, no radar coverage below 9000ft.
Repatriation?

Thanks, I always forget about that front page.

That also explains while there was no post on Air Belgium for +2 weeks then.

On 1st February 2020, the official Belgian company registrar BCE / KBO has erased the official address of Aviation Investment Holding, Air Belgium's major shareholder ("erased": adresse radiée / doorgehaald adres).

Their siège social / maatschappelijke zetel was: Ruelle Gare de Basse-Wavre 13/1, 1300 Wavre.

No where I guess, Air Belgium was mainly making money with ACMI contract (British Airways, Lot, etc) with the reduce demand those contract will certainly stop. Add to that that the regular twice weekly flight to the carribean will face some hard time too. There is no space for Air Belgium anymore
