Base: Charleroi
Fleet: 4x A340 (OO-ABA, OO-ABB, OO-ABD, OO-ABE)
History: formed during 2016, it was set up to conduct flights to Asia, initially from Brussels airport, but later it changed to Charleroi which is Brussels South. The first 2 A340's on lease from Airbus were delivered at Brussels airport on March 1 and 2 2018 receiving their markings a couple of weeks later. Their AOC was granted by March 13 and its first flight for a third party "Surinam Airways" from Amsterdam to Paramaribo and vv took place on March 29-30 2018. After a delay of six weeks own ops started on June 6 with flights to Hong Kong. These flights were due to rather poor results again suspended from September 27 2018 onwards, and from then on solely concentrating on ACMI charter work.
