This morning at 11:35 (UTC +2) one of Air Belgium’s Airbus A340s (OO-ABB) took off at Brussels South Charleroi Airport for a three-hour test flight. The flight, fully booked in less than two hours, brought the passengers via Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands back to Charleroi. The flight was a necessary test and a “final rehearsal” before Air Belgium’s first flight from Brussels South Charleroi Airport to Hong Kong at the end of April.
Passengers who have booked a ticket supported charity (Télévie and Kom Op Tegen Kanker) as the total revenue of the flights is going directly to the two Belgian organisations that support cancer research.
