Jetairfly moves Israel link to Brussels Airport

Ostend-based Jetairfly, Belgium's second-biggest airline, has decided to change the departure airport for flights to Tel Aviv from Liege to Brussels-National from summer 2014. The flight was responsible for about 40,000 passengers passing through Liege.

“We don't really understand Jetairfly's logic very well. We are disappointed,” said a spokesperson for Liege airport.

The airline, meanwhile, explained its position in a statement. “This decision does not mean we will no longer be using Liege airport,” the company said. “It is the result of a repositioning of our activities, and our desire to respond to an increased demand for a flight out of Brussels.”

The Tel Aviv flight alone accounted for more than 10% of the total number of passengers using Liege, and will be hard to compensate, even with the arrival of a new operator, Air Corsica, also in the summer of 2014. Air Corsica will operate two flights a week to Ajaccio and Bastia, rising to four in high season, for a total of about 10,000 to 12,000 passengers a year.

Jetairfly has been flying to Tel Aviv since 2008, first twice a week and then since 2011 three times a week. The airline will maintain 15 other routes out of Liege in 2014.

The recently passed Belgian law on burnout is raising questions over whether European employers, including the European Commission, are doing enough to prevent their employees from succumbing to this debilitating psychological condition, linked to prolonged exposure to stress in the workplace.

Brussels Art Days was launched in 2008 and the seventh edition this weekend marks the re-opening of 37 of the capital’s contemporary art galleries around the city centre.

Everything can be funny for Reginald D. Hunter. “The only things that are off limits to me are the things that I haven't found just the right words to say yet.”
