Oscar Oscar Alfa Bravo Bravo or OO-ABB, Air Belgium’s first Airbus A340 was ferried from Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées airport (LDE-LFBT) to Brussels Airport on Thursday 1 March 2018.
Today, 2 March 2018, her sister OO-ABA has landed on runway 07L at Brussels Airport, Aviation24.be editor Ivan Coninx withstood Mother Nature and spotted OO-ABA.
The aircraft, however, are not yet be in the official Air Belgium livery, but are still full white.
By request of the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) and to have a better accessibility to maintenance facilities, the A340s touched down on Brussels Airport soil first, instead of going straight to their base at Brussels South Charleroi Airport.
The last steps and technical controls for obtaining the AOC will be completed in Brussels, among others at Sabena Aerospace. The aeroplanes will also receive their final Air Belgium makeover, both inside and outside, in this country.
