New flights to dubai and Hongkong too... would be nice to know more
Flights to Dubaï and Hong-Kong have been operated for weeks already !

Like some intra-european destinations as Vienna, Basel, Milano, London Stansted and East-Midlands who have been operated for months by FedEx B757 and FedEx crew (formely operated by ASL Belgium 😢) That might even be against european regulation according to BECA !

A couple of more flights (if it’s the case, btw, what’s your source?) does not mean illegal flights should be tolerated. Try to do the same in the USA, you’ll be kicked out before you even try to enter...

3x777 gone at ASL, 747’s future is unknown, max plane size 737-800 allowed at ASL, says enough I guess.

New FedEx operations between IND and LGG, first flight today !
So it seems the MD11 will do IND-LGG-DXB
PVG-LGG-MEM remains as before
HKG-LGG-HKG is new (it was one way only before)

During the Week end, there are exceptions.

Interview of Luc Partoune (CEO of Liege Airport) on a regional TV channel (french only)

https://www.vedia.be/www/video/emission ... 99629.html

"First cargo airport in Belgium, Liege Airport is experiencing a major development. Despite a cargo activity that has slowed since April, 920 000 tonnes are expected to be transported by the end of 2019. A record since the creation of Liege Airport in 1990 ! This ranks it among the best cargo airports in the world !"

Qatar will have an interesting routing for some charter flights
DOH-MST-LGG-MEX-IAH

MST-LGG, that might be the shortest cargo link ever.

Really sad that they left BRU because of the noise restrictions of the Brussels capital.
Cargo is really suffering

Not only due to the noise restrictions in this case.
