Merger DAT/Virgin Express

Sat Dec 29, 2001 6:00 am

Virgin Express announced today , they are speaking with Air Holding and DAT to merge both company into a brand new belgian airline.

Sir Richard Branson approve this wedding.

Why?

The new airline will focus on a massive european network but long-haul????

Virgin Atlantic of UK will fly from Brussels as the long haul part of the new SN (with a brand new name)?

Virgin Atlantic have a very strong image in UK but less know across Europe.
SN flew some flights daily (8 or 9 dailies to US)
Virgin want maybe take a part of this market.
A kind of new hub for VS in BRU?
