30APR2013: Jetairfly to lodge EC complaint over allocation of Kinshasa rights
Jetairfly (TB, Brussels National Zaventem (BRU)) is to lodge an official complaint with the European Commission over what it terms "more proof that the Belgian government favours Brussels Airlines (SN, Brussels National Zaventem (BRU)) over it" following a recent decision to award two extra frequencies to Kinshasa N'Djili International (FIH) to Brussels Airlines. The dispute arises after a renewed Bilateral Air Services Agreement between Belgium and the DRC was signed in February this year which made provision for designated Belgian carriers to serve Kinshasa 7x weekly, up from the previous allotment of 5x weekly. While Brussels Airlines was able to hang on to its 5x weekly flights, Jetairfly applied for the other two frequencies in an attempt at gaining a foothold into the lucrative Congolese market. However, late last week, Belgian State Secretary for Mobility, Melchior Wathelet, granted the two additional weekly Kinshasa frequencies to Brussels Airlines, a move Jetairfly has rejected as "yet more proof that there is only one airline for the Belgian government and it is Brussels Airlines." Gunther Hofman, CEO of Jetairfly, says his company will lodge a complaint with the European Commission adding that "Brussels Airlines already has a monopoly on this route and it now has the help of the government."
07MAR2013: Thomson activates B787 contingency plans, to use Jetairfly B767s
Thomson Airways (BY, London Luton (LTN)) has announced that it has activated its contingency plans to switch passengers scheduled to fly on its first two B787-8s from East Midlands (EMA), Glasgow Abbotsinch International (GLA), London Gatwick (LGW) and Manchester Ringway International (MAN) to Cancún International (CUN) and Orlando Sanford International (SFB) in May and June to flights operating with B767-300(ER) equipment. Thomson says it still did not get any indication of a potential delivery date of its B787-8s as a result of the worldwide grounding of the aircraft type. As part of its plans, Thomson will also get additional capacity from sister carrier Jetairfly (TB, Brussels National Zaventem (BRU)) that will operate some of the flights with its two B767-300(ER)s on behalf of Thomson Airways.
10FEB2013: Jetairfly applies for Kinshasa traffic rights

Kinshasa is served on a daily basis by Brussels Airlines with a combination of A330-200s and A330-300s and some flights being combined with Luanda 4 De Fevereiro (LAD).
