Wind Criteria 07 Nov. 2013

As from September 19, 2013, new wind criteria are applicable at Brussels Airport. BeCA has already published a press release about these changes on August 22 and also informed the government and the Civil Aviation Authority of our disagreement with these new rules.

On October 22, the parliamentary transport commission discussed  "the use of runways and the new wind criteria" at Brussels Airport. During this meeting, secretary of state Mr. Wathelet made some incorrect statements. BeCA decided to send an open letter to the members of this parliamentary commission in order to correct what has been said by Mr. Wathelet and to clarify some of our statements.

You can find the transcript of the commission meeting and our open letter to the commission members below.
