Over the course of 2018-2019, Brussels Airlines will replace seven of its 10 long-haul aircraft. The airline will welcome seven Airbus A330-300 CEO aircraft, to replace seven older A330-200 and A330-300 aircraft that are close to the end of their leasing period.
Brussels Airlines, together with the Lufthansa Group, conducted a comprehensive study on the replacement of seven of their ten long-haul aircraft. Based on this study, the Brussels Airlines Board has recently approved the purchase of seven Airbus A330-300 'CEO' aircraft. The Airbus A330 CEO's will be equipped with a new cabin in all three travel classes, offering even higher quality of comfort. More details about the seat configuration and the state of the art in-flight product will be announced at a later stage.
While Brussels Airlines is currently flying with different engine types, the ‘CEO’ aircraft will all be equipped with Rolls Royce Trent 700 engines. This engine type that consumes less fuel and emits less noise and CO2, is already in use at several other airlines of the Lufthansa Group.
Brussels Airlines, member of Lufthansa Group and a Star Alliance member, has more than 3.500 employees and 51 aircraft operating some 300 flights daily, connecting Brussels to over 100 European and African destinations and New York JFK, Washington D.C. and Toronto. As of March 2017 the airline operates five weekly flights to Mumbai, India.
On long-haul flights, the airline operates an all new Business Class with full flatbeds and state of the art inflight entertainment, and a brand new Economy class with ergonomic seats and individual inflight entertainment touchscreens.
