With a delay of more than 12 months we reached the point. Air Belgium is finally starting operations. They start with return fares from Brussels South towards Hong Kong for less than 500 Euro. Unfortuantly they are not offering a loyalty scheme. So the company intends to do for flights towards China what Easyjet and Ryanair have done for flights within Europe.
It is a pitty they decided to go for Brussels South, so Charleroi. Yes the small airport in the south of Belgium. Also the airport with relative terrible public transport.
But it is very great. A few hunderd people will find a job at Air Belgium and the war for the cutsomer just started. Let’s start traveling and enjoy the journey.
