This article confirms that LGG is losing traffic
https://www.lloydsloadinglist.com/freig ... onxa2kzVzA

They are indeed unable to discourage the move to dutch airports. AMS I can understand... but MST ???

This was the best moment ever to prove the value of a full freighter airport, Im very disappointed.

Yes cargo.
"The current 20,000 tonnes a week is therefore an increase of about 15% on 2019 levels. However, growth could be higher when the impact of the coronavirus on FedEx/TNT’s normal schedule flights at Liège is factored in."

One new local key player, AirBridgeCargo, seems to have stopped all flights at LGG. They moved their operations back to AMS.

Remember ABC left Amsterdam for Liege in late 2018 !

:cry: If you can move operations that fast and that easily, it shows LGG has to work a lot of their own added value and create strong stickyness... so far its not a success at all.
They can be thankful that some other loyal players are increasing traffic and compensate somewhat the loss.
Lets not forget LGG was a very important entry for masks when we needed them the most, too bad they couldnt maintain the momentum

It has never been a secret that ABC "moved" to LGG due to their slot issues at AMS.
I don't know where your drama comes from :?

Well they are building a euro hub in LGG, not exactly trivial is it ?

But as I said, AMS is something you cant fight against.
Losing against MST is just plain failure.

Maybe it hurts that a small airport which is bound to so much restrictions, is still able to be a competitor for Liège. They must be doing something good then...

Liege wouldn’t be that big without the borders so close by, and without all the restrictions at other airports (even at Brussels). For me I am happy that I don’t live near Liège, specially at night.

MST is kind of dead, so I guess they do everything they can to attract customers.
How many flights moved to MST iso LGG?
Probably peanuts.

Not that many indeed... a few qatar, saudia and ethiopian
Still, would be good to understand how they did it. They barely have any benefits over LGG, i guess its more due to distraction from LGG mgmt. Thats why I allow myself to shake the tree a bit, because yes it hurts and its hard to understand.
But peanuts indeed.

Could it be because they lack staff at LGG ? Some people could be unavailable due to covid-19 symptoms!

The activity at EBLG is growing so much that the airport called on the Belgian military to supply additional fuel from EBMB.

Quote :
Due to increased activity at the airport, they can no longer meet the demand for kerosene in the usual ways. This weekend, they called on BPO to pump additional kerosene into tankers.
Thirty-three trucks were filled last weekend.

Unquote/

BPO, Belgian Pipeline Organization.

I thought LGG was connected to the nato pipeline, its not enough apparently, weird because other sources mention the traffic is barely increased...
Airbridgecargo alone could potentially generate much more traffic than this no ?

Will you ever survive that ABC story?
The number of long haul flights increased at LGG recently, with or without ABC.

I think that Acid-drop fears that ABC won't return to LGG once the crisis is over. Cargo traffic will return to normal levels once the passengers flights return in a few months. The question is whether ABC will return to LGG or remain at AMS. That will be a reduction of traffic in LGG. For now, any medium size to large airport not handling more freighters does something terribly wrong.

Hi
There will be no restrictions for cargo in AMS after this crisis..Simple reason:enough slots now that pax traffic will me much declining..For example KLM is becoming smaller..So , no I don't think Air Bridge will return to LGG..Same in BRU here..We lost LATAM to AMS..For good I'm afraid..
