According to BELGA Virgin Express will return the slots it obtained in Paris Orly to the slot coordinator as Virgin wants to concentrate on Zaventem Airport. Sources close to Virgin Express confirmed me, just a week ago, that people were being recruited for the Paris services. The priorities have changed however, it seems. We need to wait for the reasons why. Possibly the low fare carrier wants the money it has to be spend on strengthening its position in Brussels. We mayu assume that the current economic climate puts a lot of pressure on the margins of all carriers, include Virgin.
The Amsterdam-Rome service is running good, so no changes are to be expected here, according to me.
