PHOTOS: Brussels Airlines temporary operations at Zurich with long-haul aircraft


Quite some thinking outside the box by Brussels Airlines today. With their hub still closed, they fetched stranded long-haul passengers in Africa with two A330s and sent them to Zurich – where an A320 was already waiting to take them onwards to the secondary city of Liège. An Avro RJ100 dropped by as a bonus, probably as a crew shuttle.

These operations will be in full swing again tomorrow, with 5 of their A330 expected to use Zurich as their temporary base.
