All Nippon Airways back at Brussels Airport with cargo-only flights
Brussels Airport will welcome back the Japanese airline All Nippon Airways from October 13 after a brief suspension due to the ongoing pandemic. ANA will then resume flights between Tokyo Narita and Brussels Airport and the route will be operated with passenger aircrafts that will be used for cargo only.
This route will be operated three times a week (Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday) by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which has a 35 tonne belly cargo capacity. The airline has been flying to Brussels Airport since 2015. After a temporary suspension of flights due to the current Covid-19 crisis, the direct connection between Belgium and Japan will now be successfully re-established.
Brussels Airport also hopes that together with All Nippon Airways they will be able to restart passenger flights soon as well.
