Photo Special: Meet & greet with all five Belgian Icons of Brussels Airlines



On Monday 14 January 2019, Brussels Airlines organised a remarkable aviation event. For the first time ever, the Belgian airline lined up all of its five Belgian Icons at Brussels Airport for a unique family portrait.

Exactly one week earlier, on Monday 7 January 2019, the airline had posted a photo contest on its Facebook page. Everyone who was interested to join the event, could post one photo of any of the five Belgian Icon aircraft. The five aircraft are:

Aircraft Type Registration Name Livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNA Trident Red Devils livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNB Rackham Tintin livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNC Magritte Magritte livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SND Aerosmurf Smurfs livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNF Amare Tomorrowland livery

Two days later a jury, consisting of Brussels Airlines employees, made a selection of the ten most beautiful pictures and all of the ten photographers were contacted and kindly invited to join this once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity.

Here are some photos of this unique line-up of all five Belgian Icons aircraft.

  1. It are very beautiful planes! They maybe expensive to paint but the return is priceless.
    We should be proud to be able to fly with them, not to mention the wonderful crew members!
