I should think their present offer (two flights weekly?) is way below what the diamond traders and bankers require - their absolute minimum must be a day return for business without overnight stay.

It's four flights a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday), but you're right, that's not nearly enough. On top of that, they're at hugely inconvenient times for business traffic, leaving ANR at 2pm.

I would agree but of course if a Saturday flight would also leave at 6pm that wouldn't make it all that attractive.

For sale via auction: 6 old vehicles, like the old Saab friction tester:

Please note: you have to add 41,57% costs to the auction price: 21% VAT, 17% auction costs and 21% VAT on this 17%

And a hint for Aviation24.be members only: do not bid before the last 5 or 10 minutes of the auction. If you bid now already, you give others candidate buyers more time to think about a higher bid. If you wait with your bid till the last 5 minutes of the auction, you surprise them.

Will the Pipistel Alpha Electric do some circles around ANR this afternoon, or is just landing and parking?

Looking at the online Flybe timetable / fare calendar, it's now clear that the two extra flights per week will not continue past early January. The achedule goes back to four flights a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) as from January 7th.

"In the next 3 to 5 years we also want to build a departure hall that is almost 3 times as large as the current one. A 3-star hotel will be built on top of that departure hall.
The plans still have to be approved by the City of Antwerp."

But I guess this one has been put back on the shelf?
Anyone more info on that?
