Aha, that's very intersting Pressclub.

I know many people are tired of busses, cars and trains to go skiing and quite a lot of them go skiing near Geneva and take a BRU-GVA flight to get there.

And yes, Frederic, Antwerp will be very glad with a new airline.

One question, does anyone have more information about Welcome Air ?

Regards, SN-A330

I would rather be flying...

Welcome Air is a small austrian airline which operates three Do 328, two 328-130 turboprops and one sparkling new (delivered just today) 328JET. They operate

RTM-INN
ANR-INN
GRZ-INN
GRZ-RTM
HAJ-GRZ

and the respective return segments. In addition they operate ski charters and ambulance flights.

I´ve no idea. As far as I understand they do not have asigned aircraft for the specific routes but will rather employ what is free. My guess is that we will see the FRJ operating most of the scheduled flights due to the higher pax appeal (which WelcomeAir has stated in a press release) and the Props will go to the other business areas.
