Saw tuesday one of their planes in MUC. Was really surprised to see them over there.

OO-ABA is flying for Condor these days: today from Leipzig to Tenerife and back, tomorrow from Leipzig to Antalya and back. In the meantime, her sister OO-ABB comes back from Munich with Audi people. They keep busy before the big start to Hong Kong!

They will probably be inspected by HK CAA on their first flights. So triple check everything Air Belgium!

Can you also book a flight to Hong Kong on Air Belgium without this package? I've been trying every combination imaginable yesterday on the Connections website and I never get any Air Belgium flights there.

The aircraft is still flying, just under a different registration. Hence, it’s not written off, it’s just cancelled in the Belgian register.

I'm a travel agent at Connections. Basically Air Belgium is not present in the GDS at this moment. The package deal is negotiated directly with Air Belgium. You could do the reservation in a travel shop (including with me), but there will be extra fees compared to a direct booking with them on their website.

Is there a chance that Air Belgium flights will be in the GDS anytime soon ?
