Re: Nordic Aviation - 2019

It is possible to take the commuter train from Arlanda directly to Solna station and MoS. The travel time is 29 minutes. From where precisely does this commuter train depart? The last time I visited Arlanda it seemed only Arlanda Express departed from the airport. For commuter trains you first had ...

Re: Nordic Aviation - 2019

Brussels Airlines is very happy with Stockholm Bromma, this has been stated many times by the airline itself. Also, the fact they were eager to fly an A319 (up to 3 times a day) confirms the potential and the success of this route. Traffic is both business as leisure oriented. Quite a number of comp...

Re: Airlines that will still be flying the A340 in 2020 and beyond.

Air Belgium's fleet consists of 4 former Finnair A340-300's. SAS will be using their A340's for a while, until a decision on their replacement has been taken (which is rather a question "when" than "if") SK this year will replace several A340 with a new A330 and 3 A350, the othe...

Re: WOW Financial Discussion Thread

Sunday, January 6th, 2019: In the A333 days, WOW's largest European destinations were AMS and CDG, both with 2x daily A333/A321 services in Summer. Now the A333 aircraft have been returned to lessors, it seems WOW is combining the two destinations with extra capacity to handle A333 volume bookings....

Re: LCY SSJ Certification

Makes you wonder why Sukkhoi didn't include wing tip devices in the design from the start, every other passenger jet from the last 20+ years has had them. Winglets are a fix for an imperfect wing design. You can avoid them by designing the wing properly from the outset. It's the reason why the late...

Re: Brussels SSJ destinations?

BMA is not served by A319s. It is always a SSJ. I don't think I've ever seen a A319 land at BMA. If the SSJ is not available the flights have been cancelled. I checked their website yesterday and the flight for an entire week is listed as an A319. Then again that was April 2019, so maybe they haven...

No, it hasn't. They use their second A340 for this part of their operations. Unfortunately that aircraft is on ground in Libreville (according to www.aviation24.be)

Re: United opens new summer seasonal routes from EWR to OPO, KEF and ZRH as well as route extensions

I wonder when BRU will eventually get back its evening service to NYC. A second EWR-BRU service was announced by UA for summer 2016 but got cancelled because of the Brussels attacks.

Re: SWISS phases out final Avro RJ100, Last flight was Aug 15 GVA-ZRH

I have never been on an Avro or a Bae146, and it looks like my chance of flying on one is getting slimmer. I find regional planes to be just as interesting as mainline aircraft, and I always wanted to fly on a four engine RJ. How many do SN have left? Are they fully retiring their fleet? Last time ...

Re: Airport in two time zones?!

I've heard of airports in two different countries (e.g. Geneva), but are there any other airports in two different time zones? Interesting question. Googling doesn't give me any other such airports. Perhaps many airports are in two time zones, when crew use UTC instead of local time. :biggrin: GVA,...

Re: AZ to start daily ATH-TLV S17

The EU-Israel Open Skies agreement comes to mind. I believe the agreement allows an increase of flights between EU and Israel in 2017.

In that case, Alitalia tries to secure a part of the Italian share in the agreement. The new Athens-service will probably affect the already existing Rome-service.
