Re: ASL Airlines Belgium & ASL Aviation Holdings news 2021

So the majority will leave for CDG soon? According to this press article 20 out of 26 ASL aircraft should be maintained in CDG instead of LGG. An interesting clue ? https://www.rtbf.be/info/regions/liege/detail_restructuration-chez-x-air-services-aeroport-de-liege-une-premiere-reunion-decevante-pou...

Re: Air Belgium in 2021

It appears AB will operate a second QR cargo rotation, starting tonight QR8247 with OO-SEA (in addition to QR8814 on OO-ABA). Same thing apparently tonight with OO-AIR this time. It's funny to see that OO-SEA flew this afternoon from BRU to LGG and 2 hours later OO-AIR is flying from LGG to BRU ! C...

Re: PSG star team lands at Ostend-Bruges Airport for tonight’s game against Club Brugge, but was this charter necessary?

It’s exactly these kind of flights which give aviation a bad image. Not to mention that that aircraft had to be positioned empty twice to allow that flight : from ORY to LBG and then from CDG to ORY ! Quite an impressive carbon footprint for this trip ! Screenshot_20210916-082902_Flightradar24.jpg

Runway 24 has now a displaced threshold (no change to the landing distance for that runway) so the landing light infrastructure is integrated to the runway extension !

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

The air traffic controller who directed a Ryanair plane to divert to Minsk over a fake bomb threat has allegedly been missing for quite a while. Presumably he has quite a bit of information, so it’s not known for sure if he decided to escape Belarus (knowing he was a key witness to what happened), o...

Re: European 'environment tax' on aviation?

The European Commission is drafting an overhaul of EU energy taxation, as part of a package of measures it will propose on July 14, to meet a target to reduce EU greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030, from 1990 levels. The proposal would impose an EU-wide minimum level of tax on energy products su...
