Air Belgium is a new airline which aims to launch commercial flights out of Charleroi Airport in Belgium. Once dubbed ‘South’ Brussels by Ryanair the airport has seen significant expansion and growth over the years and Air Belgium are looking to capitalise on this within such close proximity to the capital Brussels. Hong Kong will be Air Belgium’s first destination, serving it 4 times weekly from Charleroi, the first commercial flight is scheduled to take place on April 30th 2018.
With the first flight fast coming up Air Belgium will be operating two practice flights on the 21st April 2018 where a full service will be offered to ensure cabin crew and ground crew can get valuable first hand experience operating the flights out of Charleroi. It will also be a great outlet for the airline to gather important feedback where improvements can be made prior to their scheduled flights starting.
