Very good pax figures for the airport as mentioned on this website.

CEO Mr Buelens still hopes that the Flemish government/De lijn changes the route of the coastal tram serving the airport.
Nevertheless "De lijn" provides currently 6 busses a hour to and from the airport.

New destinations/airlines in 2020? Possible return of flights to Moscou?
Volotea? Air Arabia? Jet2? Easyjet?

When you see these figures then it should be time for Sunweb/Corendon to use Belgian regional airports.
Also hearing Mr Buelens in the interview, Brussels is saturated.

My opion is that Brussels should get rid off charter (vacation) flights, this would open up more slots for others.
Get rid off most of the early flights in the morning.

What slot problem , BRU is only at 66% of the actual movements they had in their best year's 2000/1

2000 : 353.000 movements
2018 : 235.000 movements

So still some growth possible !

The amount of movements on a yearly basis don't mean there can't be slot restrictions during peak periods...

There is no problem at BRU concerning slots except maybe early morning hours..OST should concentrate on cargo and maybe try to attract tourists to Bruges..JAF has the monopoly on charter flights out of Belgium!
