  4. Grande communauté Libanaise à Abidjan avec des liens avec la communauté de MTL. https://www.jeuneafrique.com/695940/societe/qui-sont-les-libanais-de-cote-divoire/
  5. Espérons Aer Lingus en 2021 et que l'arrivée de TP va faire bouger Iberia car TP pourra acheminer facilement bcq de pax vers le marché Espagnol. Il ne manquera plus qu'un transporteur Italien et à très long terme la Grèce devrait retrouver une cie Long Haul fiable. Par contre pour SAS et Finnair(présentes à YMX il y a longtemps) je n'y crois pas.On verra ce que le vol sur CPH(un peu un test)fonctionnera à l'été 2020? Lot ou Tchèque Airline voir Tarom(vu la communauté roumaine en hausse)par contre une mini chance.
  6. Il y a bien longtemps AC avait en plan une liaison vers le Vietnam(elle fut même un court instant en gds)au moment ou BEY avait été annulé sur pression US. Les vols étaient chargés 'sous réserve d'approbation gouvernementale'.Il n'y a jamais eu de suite.Je ne me souviens pas de la période exactement,mais je suis certain d'avoir vu ça.
  7. Si le rachat de Transat est confirmé,à terme par contre les vols de saison entre YUL et BRU(3 x) de Transat,ça va faire un peu beaucoup je crois. Après Aer Lingus (confirmé pour 2020),on attend plus que TP/IB et soit AZ ou Air Italy...moins optimiste pour Lot par contre.
  8. Ils ont besoin d'une petite 'mise à jour' culturelle sur MTL.😀 Sinon AC reprend la route YYZ BRU,5 x semaine . https://www.dhnet.be/actu/belgique/brussels-airlines-va-bientot-relier-bruxelles-a-montreal-5d6fa14af20d5a3c02205c71
  9. Brussels Airlines to launch flights to Montreal, Canada in 2020. As from the end of March 2020, Brussels Airlines, Belgium’s home carrier will launch seasonal flights to Montreal, i.e. in the summer season (end March to end October), the airline will offer 5 flights per week between Brussels Airport and Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. With the remaining aircraft capacity in winter, Brussels Airlines will also increase its offer to Washington, which will become a year round service as of 20 February, whereas today this is a summer destination only. Montreal being the most important market in Canada out of Belgium and having a high demand for connections to and from Sub-Saharan Africa via Brussels, Brussels Airlines has decided to launch flights to Montreal, the second most populous municipality in Canada. “Montreal is a real added value for the Brussels Airlines network. It is a strong market out of Belgium, with over 75,000 potential travellers a year. Montreal is very relevant both for business and leisure travellers, and the appealing destination can easily be stimulated for both individual and group travel. We are looking forward to adding Montreal to our portfolio,” said Frederic Dechamps, Senior Director Sales Belgium – Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa Group Flights leave out of Brussels Airport in the morning and return to Brussels early in the morning, allowing for convenient connections to and from many European destinations and Brussels Airlines’ 17 African destinations. Onboard Experience The new Brussels – Montreal route will be operated with an Airbus A330-300 aircraft, which includes Brussels Airlines’ newly introduced boutique hotel in the sky service in its brand new Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class. Passengers can experience Belgian hospitality and a premium culinary experience onboard. A menu crafted every year by a different Belgian Star Chef is available for the enjoyment of Business Class passengers. All guests also have the choice of eight famous Belgian beers as well as Belgian wines, coffee and premium Belgian chocolates. Brussels Airlines’ new Premium Economy Class offers long haul passengers a quiet, relaxed and comfortable experience with plenty of legroom spacing up to 96cm. Chairs are also equipped with bigger headrests and a generous 40° seat recline that allow for a relaxing sleep. Furthermore, every seat is equipped with its own USB power plug in order to stay productive during their flight. Tickets can be booked on brusselsairlines.com, the Brussels Airlines ticketing desk or travel agencies. Schedule Summer 2020 (March 29th 2020 – October 24th 2020) in local time Brussels Airlines’ last flight to Toronto will take off on January 7th 2019. Passengers already booked on flights after that date will be offered alternative travel solutions. With the remaining capacity in the Winter season (end October until end March), Brussels Airlines is able to increase its Washington service to a year-round destination, herewith responding to the high demand for flights between Washington and Brussels Airlines’ African destinations. In summer (end March until end October) the service will be offered daily, in winter 4 times a week. About Montreal Montréal is the largest city in Canada’s Québec province. Set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart, Montreal was named Canada’s Cultural Capital by Monocle Magazine. Montréal is a busy and exhilarating city that includes neighbourhoods ranging from cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica at its centre – to the hip and laidback Mile-End. Montreal’s many cultural communities have given it a distinct local culture. Every summer sees the arrival of many festivals in the city. The city’s largest festival is the Montreal International Jazz Festival, which is the biggest jazz festival in the world. Other popular festivals include the Just for Laughs (largest comedy festival in the world) and the Montreal World Film Festival. Montreal is also home to the famous Cirque du Soleil, which performs in a marvellous tent complex by the water. Highlights of the city include the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montreal, which features works from European heavyweights as well as exquisite Canadian art, the Atwater Market and the Places d’Arme, an open square framed by some of the finest buildings in Old Montréal, including its oldest bank, its first skyscraper and the Basilique Notre-Dame. Announcement on Instagram This morning, Brussels Airlines posted a fun contest on its Instagram account, the participants had to look out for eight letters that were randomly placed in downtown Brussels. Bringing those eight letters together, you would then discover Montreal as Brussels Airlines’ newest long-haul destination.

  11. Nantes devrait suivre et clôturer la liste des destinations en France métro.Lille(1.3 millions) est trop proche de CDG et de BRU.Strasbourg pas assez grande(600k) même si riche.Montpellier trop petite (550.000 hab)dans 10 ans peut être?On oublie souvent de citer Mulhouse desservie par Transat même si l'aéroport est à cheval sur Suisse et France. Genève grandit de plus en plus coté France voisine comme on dit la bas(vu les prix délirants de l'immo en Suisse). Transat pourrait faire un test sur LUX ou il n'y a pas de liaisons vers l'AmNord,c'est pas hyper grand(600.000 habitants + Belgique,France,Allemagne voisines,d'ou viennent des centaines de milliers de frontaliers).Luxembourg est un paradis fiscal,énormément de banques,Amazon Europe etc ....très haut pouvoir d'achat.

  14. YUL BOD: 13.5% growth in July, as it rains traffic records at Bordeaux Airport. ...In this respect, it is worth noting the excellent performances of flights from Bristol, Dusseldorf, Krakow, Basel and Geneva, Glasgow and Montreal... Long-haul flights to Montreal progressed by more than 52%, thanks in particular to the arrival of Air Canada on 4 July and the continued growth of Air Transat, which between them operated the equivalent of a daily flight. https://www.aviation24.be/airports/bordeaux-bod/13-5-growth-in-july-as-it-rains-traffic-records-at-bordeaux-airport/
