Air Belgium is a Belgian scheduled and charter airline headquartered in Mont-Saint-Guibert and based at Brussels South Charleroi Airport.
Air Belgium History
In the summer of 2016, the company was started with CEO Niky Terzakis, who worked previously for ASL Airlines Belgium, formerly TNT Airways.
The intention was to link Belgium to destinations in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Wuhan, Zhengzhou and Taiyuan from its base at Brussels South Charleroi Airport.
The first flight from Brussels to Hong Kong was planned to take off in October 2017, however this was postponed as the airline lacked an air operator’s certificate (AOC). In December 2017, Air Belgium announced that the first flight should now take place in March 2018 from Brussels South Charleroi Airport instead of Brussels Airport due to lower airport taxes and easy accessibility; it was also announced that, for business class and premium passengers, the airline would operate from a new dedicated terminal which would be built at the executive terminal, while economy passengers would use the regular terminal.
On 14 March 2018, it was announced that the airline had received its AOC from the Belgian civil aviation authority and planned to begin operating scheduled flights from mid-April.
On 29 March 2018, the airline flew its first revenue service by operating its Airbus A340-300 in Air Belgium livery on behalf of Surinam Airways from Amsterdam to Paramaribo. On 25 April 2018, the airline announced a delay to its own inaugural flight (to Hong Kong) from 30 April 2018 to 3 June, due to not having the rights to operate in Russian airspace.
Since the commencement of the service for the first destination, it started operating a scheduled service between Charleroi and Hong Kong. Moreover, the other aircraft of the fleet was provided to Air France for a daily service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Libreville during the 2018 summer season.
On 21 September 2018, the airline announced that scheduled operations between Charleroi and Hong Kong would be suspended during winter, and the airline would instead focus on charter operations. The route should have restarted at the end of March 2019, but two weeks before the planned date Air Belgium instead announced that they would be terminating the route and working towards starting new services to mainland China in mid-2019 and the Americas in late 2019 or early 2020.
On 16 July 2019, the airline announced plans for flights to Fort de France and Pointe-à-Pitre by December 2019, with further plans to fly to Kinshasa and Miami.
