On tuesday, OO-TEA flew (OST-)ANR-NUE-ANR(-OST), probably for a charter, but that made OO-TEA occupied for the day. Could they do that without impact on other flights as it is a lower season? Or where there cancelled flights?

Antwerp:
New: Lublin, Enfidha, Murcia-Corvera

Ostend:
Cut: Nice

Charleroi
New: Murcia-Corvera

Liege
New: Izmir, Antalya
Cut: Kos

Brussel
New: Firenze, Split, Toulon, Nice, Murcia-Corvera, Murcia-San-Javier, Kayseri, Tunis, Tetouan, Tlemcen, Oujda, Ouarzazate, Algiers, Bejaja, Constantine, Casablanca, Essouira, Eskisehir, Nador, Oran

Innsbruck?: Unsure, could still be WC Cycling flights

This is according to TUI Fly flight engine compared to last years flights. I'm not sure about all the new routes to North Africa from Brussels, could be a mistake.

Lublin from Antwerp is pretty interesting IMHO. Not only is this a completely new destination (and country?) for TUI as a whole, it's also clearly a destination driven by VFR-traffic (Visiting Friends and Relatives).

Yep, Lublin will be served from Antwerp.

Found this page:

A smart move or not? Wizz air serves Lublin from nearny Eindhoven...

Nice research, I have asked TUI for some more information and very soon they will communicate on Summer 2019.

The fares are loaded for summer 2019

As expected a lot of the routes from Brussels do not exist. But you can still search for example Brussels to Firenze while the only route is Antwerp to Firenze

OO-ABE from Air Belgium has to fly for TUI fly Belgium, it is currently coming back from Tenerife South to Charleroi, as it flew as flight TB5753 (Brussels flight transfered to Charleroi due to Aviapartner strike).

Why no try CRL or ANR - SIR (see powder ski debacle) ? Only in winter, there is surely a market for such a destination

The ANR - INN winter season flights are exactly targeting the skiing enthusiasts. And they surely had good reasons to choose INN and not SIR (ao. the fact that the TUI group is already extensively using INN)

Surely, but INN is far away from SIR, and many belgians go to the swiss alps and try to avoid GVA

There must be a reason there are so few services to Sion. I bet the slots are quite expensive, or otherwise hard to get.

It s simple...

Due to the CHF EUR Exchange rate it has become very difficult for TUI to offer ski holidays in Switzerland.

In general TUI offers flights where they offer hotels...

See where I've flown at OpenFlights!

Nov. 5th, OO-JVA (E190) was ferried from ANR to AMM (Amman, Jordan). Probably a record distance flight of a TUIFly E190 out of ANR

Having its first C-check ??

They certainly checked the navigation & ADS-B system the day after, as it was hopping around from more than 3 hours :D https://www.flightradar24.com/data/airc ... a#1e775f61
