One of the most pressing challenges of the past few weeks has emerged from Qatar Airways Cargo’s decision to develop Luxembourg Airport as a European hub. This will entail the move of 7 of the 14 QR flights currently touching down at LGG to LUX. The silver lining in this cloud is in the fact that prior to that decision QR had already expressed its wish to expand its frequencies at LGG from the said 14 to 21, says Steven .”To do so, the bilateral air services agreement between Belgium and Qatar has to be expanded. So, as from September, we should be able to go back to 14.

Your source is stating from begin august, Qatar reported the move by its self this morning! ;)

btw;

Eventually, LUX may become a more serious threat to LGG than other neighbouring airports like Brussels and Maastricht. “All depends on to what extent Cargolux will be protected,” Steven thinks. “It may not be unlike the situation I see in Belgium, where there is always a direct reaction to subsidies granted elsewhere. The government only started moving in the ET Cargo issue, after the company had been lured to Maastricht. Now we see QR Cargo moving to LUX. Unfortunately we went through a change of federal Transport ministers. The message, however, is clear: if you want to promote air cargo, you have to open up the traffic rights. MAA grants 5Th freedom to all freighters.

Brother, I can see you dont are familiar with the aviation business. Aviation business aren`t weblinks only! But you can read clearly in the article above LGG Airport selfs state the same news ''Now we see QR Cargo moving to LUX'' just my 2 cents.

As you said, the same news is getting old.
So what is your point ?
Many flights are landing in the night, they need LGG for that. Right ?
