Finally did they receive the right to overfly Russia ? I did not read anything about ? Thx.
A couple of days ago, Niky Terzakis tweeted that he didn't have the overflight rights yet, but that customers should not worry: they would be offered alternatives or reimbursement in case of cancellations.

AB will have less flight frequency to Hong Kong as for June and July

Proof of my mail regarding my flight of 24th of June:
Indeed we had to modify our schedule in June and July due to the delayed authorization to overfly Russia and in your particular case the departure date should be modified from June 25th to June 24th if this acceptable for you ?

Air Belgium today issued a press release with the news of the Russian approval, and also with the reduction of frequencies. http://www.aviation24.be/airlines/air-b ... thorities/
Air Belgium wrote:Given the impact of the delayed launch, Air Belgium has been forced to adapt the frequency of its flights to Hong Kong during the launch phase. The company will offer two flights per week in June, followed by three per week from July onward and, finally, four per week from October onward.

Air Belgium will contact all passengers that are impacted by this change, and will offer them a tailored solution.
Niky Terzakis also confirmed the preparations for a third aircraft: "Meanwhile, we’re working hard to have the third plane ready by the end of June and are preparing the first flights to Mainland China, which are expected to launch in the coming months."

OO-ABA is flying for Condor these days: today from Leipzig to Tenerife and back, tomorrow from Leipzig to Antalya and back. In the meantime, her sister OO-ABB comes back from Munich with Audi people. They keep busy before the big start to Hong Kong!

They will probably be inspected by HK CAA on their first flights. So triple check everything Air Belgium!

Can you also book a flight to Hong Kong on Air Belgium without this package? I've been trying every combination imaginable yesterday on the Connections website and I never get any Air Belgium flights there.

Written off
The aircraft is still flying, just under a different registration. Hence, it’s not written off, it’s just cancelled in the Belgian register.
