"The thrust is exerted on the air which the treadmill has no effect on"
Yes, the treadmill has no effect on the air, but no, the thrust is not exerting (reacting) on the air. The thrust is just a force in one direction, reaction in the opposite. Just like rockets don't. That's how rockets work as well in space where there is no air.
The airplane is definitely going to fly.
