The only possibility is that BMi - if they get the contract - hires some Belgians via a pilot interim company like Capital Aviation or IAC or so.
Maybe they will consider this. Some DAT management people are thinking on this option.
About 800 Belgian pilots are unemployed now (figures from BeCA this morning).
Who found a job?
x Less than 50 were hired by the charter start-up Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium.
x A dozen are flying in Italy for Air One (Boeing 737).
x And there are some individual solutions (two were hired by SQ, one went to Air Mauritius, etc).
x About 50 hope they will be hired by the VG Airlines project. But until now nobody of them could sign a contract
I keep you all informed but i also have to write for my newspaper
