Base: Brussels
Fleet: 1x B737 (OO-LTE), 3x A300 (OO-INGOO-MKO, OO-TJO)
History: European Airlines was formed in October 1991 by ex-TEA staff with support of ING Lease to provide charter services from its Brussels base with a fleet of three B737-300. Ad hoc charters started in December with a single ex TEA B737, by May 1992 accompanied by three A300. The B737 was wet leased to Airlanka between March and July 1992 and already disposed of in October 1992. The Airbuses were often wet leased to third parties like Air India, Tunis Air, PIA and Caribjet. In the summer of 1994 a holiday charter program to Mediterranean resorts was launched. During 1995 ING Lease decided to withdrawn from aviation business resulting in the closure of EAL on October 31 1995.
