Air Belgium proudly displays the Belgian flag on their aircraft and aims to showcase Belgian know-how as reflected in catering with typical Belgian dishes, hospitality, multilingual crews and in all services on the ground and inflight. The carrier continues to develop their business with the immediate arrival of a second Airbus A330neo. The latest generation aircraft is one of the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly models available and offers an enhanced guest experience with a quiet and spacious cabin, as well as well as a state-of-the art inflight entertainment (IFE) system.


Mont-Saint-Guibert based Air Belgium offers direct intercontinental flights from Belgium. The airline is exclusively dedicated to providing long-haul flights at competitive fares for Business and leisure travelers. Air Belgium’s main operational base is located at Brussels Charleroi Airport and the carrier also operates from other airports in Belgium and Europe.

Air Belgium currently operates an all-Airbus widebody fleet including A330-300, A330neo and A340-300 aircraft, the latter of which will gradually be replaced by A330neos.
