Air Belgium to expand fleet with four new cargo aircraft
Several months ago, Air Belgium airlines had announced the desire to diversify into cargo. The company on January 29 has said that it will soon introduce four cargo aircraft with an ambition of six units by the end of 2021.
The first two aircraft should be operational by March 2021 and the first aircraft will be based at Liege Airport. At the same time, the airline will of course continue its passenger flights to the French West Indies.
Niky Terzakis, CEO, Air Belgium said, "In such an uncertain period, this is good news for the airline. We are delighted to be able to begin this diversification into the commercial and cargo sector, which my team and I know well. This will complement our existing passenger business which has been severely impacted by the current travel restrictions. This demonstrates once again the resilience and flexibility of our airline's development potential. As well as the ever-growing attractiveness of Liege Airport."
