Warsaw’s Chopin Airport wants to free up some bandwidth, shifting LCCs and charter operators to Radom. The Ministry of Infrastructure has announced a public consultation on the matter.

And what about Modlin? Will Ryanair remain alone there?

Modlin is a good way but Radom is interesting for nobody, Modlin can not handle more than 5 planes at once... But also there is the project of Central Poland Airport on the way but I haven't got any news about it for a while...

What is the problem here ? On long haul it is normal that pilots take a short nap while the other pilot takes control no ?

The Aer Lingus was flying at 37,000 feet and the bigger A380 exactly 1,000 feet higher (38,000 feet). Blue skies and the standard 1000 feet vertical separation, a perfect aviation day. But not according to a few newspapers.

Is the end near for Jet Airways, which once made the headlines at Brussels Airport?

Already 23 aircraft are grounded for non-payment of the lease rentals.

The Netherlands marks 100 years of aviation
On 14th March 2019, aviation pioneers KLM, GKN Fokker and the Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) jointly marked their centenary at the EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam. At this location, precisely 100 years ago, the First Aviation Exhibition Amsterdam (ELTA) was held. At the event, speakers looked back on 100 years of Dutch aviation and forward to a sustainable future. King Willem Alexander was on hand to mint a special commemorative coin, and Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen of Infrastructure and Water Management was presented with a special series of aviation postage stamps. There was also a flypast of modern and vintage aircraft over the waters of the IJ, behind Amsterdam Central Station.

That flypast of a KLM B777, escorted by 4 x F16's, was kept secret: it was "a surprise" for king Willem-Alexander (who is a 737 pilot). But seeing a KLM 777 flying very low over Amsterdam and escorted by fighters caused a lot of distress on social media. Many people thaught the plane was hijacked.
