Per year? That's barely one flight every two nights! Nobody should complain...

Yet, some people will complain about this "unbearable" additional inconvenience! :)

Good news for the OST spotters.

According to W****, you will be able to see 747-200 freighters at OST...
The IL-76MD will be back again with its old smokey engines. Spotters will be able to see,hear and smell this plane from miles ahead.
According to them it seems that a certain armsdealer still has a monopoly on using freighter IL's from OST. While this person has died recently.

Real news: the new broker ZEUS has attracted some small freighters in for the automotive industry mainly for Volvo. :!:

Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp Airports represented at Antwerp Holiday Fair Jan 24th-27th

Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp Airports represented at Antwerp Holiday Fair Jan 24th-27th
PRESSE RELEASE
Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp Airports represented at Antwerp Holiday Fair Jan 24th-27th
The largest holiday fair in Flanders will be held at Antwerp Expo this year, from Thursday Jan 24th till Sunday Jan 27th. Exhibitors at the fair will be divided in two groups: the close to home holidays and the far from home holidays. Our stand can be found in hall 4 at stand 4600 with the far from home holidays, meaning holidays for which you travel by airplane.
Airports invite professionals on opening day
At the opening, Thursday morning, we fly right into the action. From 10am to 12am all tour operators and other professionals will be welcome in the BLACK BOX in hall 1 (stand 1403), which has been rented out by the Airport. The BLACK BOX is an area that has been customized in order to inform participants, in a private and very hospitable atmosphere, of current and future flight offers. TUI fly (with spokesman Piet Demeyere), Flybe (with marketing director Bernd Behrend) and new company La Nova (with CEO David Roman) will demonstrate their strengths and illustrate their cooperation with the regional Airport(s). Marcel Buelens, CEO of both regional Airports, will start things off.
Visitors will be pampered
Stand 4600 in hall 4 will prove itself the place to be at Antwerp’s Holiday Fair. The two Airports will highlight their destinations and bring the holiday atmosphere by integrating TUI fly and Flybe as subexhibitors in the main booth.
Gadgets + photos + airplane tickets
For four days straight, the regional Airports and the two airline companies will indulge thousands of visitors with a fun and diverse series of gadgets. To top things off, every day there will be four duo tickets up for grabs.
How to participate in the contest?
The visitor will come to the photo booth at stand 4600 in hall 4
A host or hostess will guide the visitor that wishes to participate at the photo booth
The visitor will share their favorite destination: London or Ibiza!
A postcard style photo will be printed immediately according to the visitor’s preference
The postcard will serve as a gift and memento
The visitor will have a shot at a duo ticket if they send the postcard to their email address through the photo booth, and subsequently share the photo on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #flyrelaxflyregional
Each day the four photos with the most likes on Facebook or Instagram will be selected. The contest ends at exactly 5pm!
At 6pm the winners will be announced!

Through this global social media contest we will involve every visitor of the Holiday Fair. The regional Airports, along with TUI fly and Flybe, will deliver a powerful message at this edition of the Holiday Fair: #flyrelaxflyregional

The fair will take place at Antwerp Expo from Thursday Jan 24th until Sunday Jan 27th 2019, with doors open daily from 10am to 6pm. Tickets for the Antwerp Holiday Fair can be purchased at http://www.vakantiesalon-antwerpen.be/tickets/

Why doesn't the airport management (Egis) jump in and do the handling itself, like in CRL?

What if Egis steps in after March 6 when they would be able to snap up Aviapartner for a few Euro's.
Hire the staff which they want(read the cheap contracts) and operate the handling themselfs ...

And another presscoverage of the inaugural flight of POBEDA to Ostend - Bruges .

https://www.hln.be/regio/oostende/video ... ~a7dae0e4/

Summary:
182 incoming passengers and 105 outgoing on the first flight .
Next saturday : 150 expected on both incoming and outgoing flights

Pobeda is very pleased with the initial response on this new route and already thinking to increase frequency to 6 flights a week!
well, at the least the start is not bad. Nice for OST -airport.

Maybe POBEDA should consider also flights to/fm Saint-Petersburg? 8-)

That is more an Antwerp destination than Ostend :) I heard one can even have the famous Antwerp Bolleke (De Koninck) beer in SPB ... on draught! Unfortunately, Pobeda only operate B737s, too big for the Antwerp runway.

Thanks to Pobeda en more cargo, AP decided to stay at EBOS.
But they want more flexibility from its workers.

Comment: Why a new name? The name Aviapartner is still all over the place.
Seems BCUBE will start in a couple of months as a cargo handler.

In that article, the trade union guy says: "the employees have allways been very flexible, and they won't get much in return for additional flexibility". Reply from management: "yes, we are happy with their efforts, but if we want to survive, we do need more flexibility".

With 2,9M cumulated losses and 2,4M negative own assets, I tend to believe management.
