With 92 aircrafts based in Belgium, we have the biggest fleet in Belgium. We have medium, large and very large planes. 50 planes of the Bombardier CRJ (by the way: we are the biggest operator of the CRJ fleet worldwide), 32 planes of the Airbus A320 fleet, and 10 planes of the Airbus A310 fleet.
In addition, we have in total 34 new planes on order.
Our financial circumstances: Due to flight plan and structural changes, we are experiencing right now increased office rent and slot fees. But all in all, we are in good financial circumstances. For more information about our finances, please wait for the annual report of 1999 in spring of 2000.
Air Brussels had redoubled its flights and fleet within the last 2 years. Now we have about 92 aircrafts and are flying to 215 destinations and are offering more than 4000 flights per week. We are very satisfied with the development in the last 5 years. We have started very small and now we are the biggest airline at the airport of Brussels and in Belgium. Passenger- and revenue-numbers are showing very good and positive results. Thus we have started a new campaign to get a better image.
We can say that we will expand our route network and open new routes to show up as an attractive and popular airline in the near future.
In conclusion we are saying, that Air Brussels became with its program to a popular, safe and famous airline in Belgium.
We are looking forward to see you soon on one of our flights.
With best wishes,
