Airlines that flew from BRU

Post by nordikcam »

Since the departure of American ... and I hope his speedy return , 5 Philadelphia ) and maybe more desinations, after the cancel of the ATL flight and I hope it will come back soon on the portfolio of BRU...I have compiled a list of companies having set foot in BRU...
Do you imagine they could fly again to BRU...one day ?

Non exhaustiv list !

1.Europe : LG on LUX BRU or maybe charter flights ( I have a pic of a 737 of LG in BRU in the years 70 ).

2. America : CU on HAV BRU
VASP on SAO / Recife and Salvador BRU ( disapeared ) but TAM could arrive.
AA on JFK and PHL BRU
LAP ( Lineas Aereas Paraguays ) on Asunción Recife BRU ( I took this flight )

3.Asia : SQ on Singapore JFK
OZ (ASiana ) on Séoul Vienna ( If I remember wel ) BRU
Air Lanka on Colombo BRU ...maybe continuing to Paris or London
AI on Bombay BRU LHR
RB on Damas / Alep BRU...would flying again after the war finished...if someones decide to discuss
RJ on Amman BRU
Bengladesh Airlines on Dacca BRU JFK
9W on Bombay / Delhi / Chennai
Iraki Airways on Baghdad BRU
MS on KUL BRU
Afriquyah or Lybian Arab Airlines ( other problem)
GA on Djakarta BRU
A lot of asian companies !!!!!

4.Africa : SA on Jo'burg BRU
QC (Air Congo disapeared but Air Congo as the same identification ).
Cameroon ( disaperead but I guess there is a new one...Camair no ?)
and Gabonair came to BRU too.

Or the future of BRU will not pass by foreign companies but by the development of SN ( see other topic )
Thx for comments...

Philippine Airlines. The name "Brussels" can still be seen on the old-fashioned destination board at NAIA.

People Express also briefly operated a weekly BRU-SFO for $49. Beat that, Norwegian!

Air Mauritius used to fly to MRU, I think via ZRH? Or was it MRU-BRU-MAN at once stage? I can't recall...on both A340 and B767 I think.
bmi of course used to fly to BRU before they disappeared (though of course bmi Regional continue today).

Indeed, Air Mauritius did fly to BRU. In 2003 they operated the flight via ZRH (flight MK060). Here are some pics I made on a spring evening in June 2003.

Also, Citybird does not exist anymore, but I loved its livery (and ATC callsign as well: 'dreamflight'). Flew BRU-LAX with them and OAK-BRU in July 1998.

Best regards,
Ivan

And everyone forgets the major airline that flew out of BRU: Sabena!

Also not to forget some other Belgian airlines that went down the drain: BIAS, Air Belgium, Sobelair, TEA, Virgin Express, VG Airlines -> Delsey Airlines, ...

The day Virgin Express disappeared, it was also the case for SN Brussels Airlines. ;)

About the possible relaunch of the seasonal AA PHL - BRU route next year, I have some doubts about it (even if I'd love it!) due to the route performance described in an other topic. LF was 40% on average
if I remember well...

On a side note, how I would love the return of Singapore Airlines at BRU!

SQ : I guess SQ will come back in the future.
AA : If they do not fly PHL BRU...why not MIA BRU ?
