Brussels Airlines

Unconfirmed report reaching the GNN has hinted that SN Brussels, 100% owned by the SN Airholding which is also part of the Lufthansa Group may likely reduce its activities to Liberia due to the reduction of many of its passengers as a result of the continues rise of the Coronavirus in Liberia.

According to sources closed to the GNN, this Belgium’s national carrier also may likely slow down its activities due to the lack of sufficient lighting system at the nation’s main international Airport, the Roberts International Airport (RIA).

GNN has reliably learnt that many of air carriers have been complaining of similar situation, the lack of lighting system at the Airport, noting that it is indeed dangerous for aircrafts and their passengers   who may be arriving in the country at night.

When GNN contacted the Public Relations Manager at the RIA, Ernest Sharpe regarding the reported pull out of the Belgium’s national carrier, SN Brussels, rubbished the report, noting that at no time the management of Brussels ever said it will cease its operations in Liberia due to ‘unbearable situation’.

Mr. Sharpe speaking to the GNN via mobile phone today, also denied that there is a lack of sufficient lighten system at the airport, stressing, that everything including the safety of passengers and aircrafts has been done in line with international protocol, and further disclosed that the airport has been upgraded with a state-of-the-art IT system.
