Getting to know Brussels Airlines

Established as recently as 2002, Brussels Airlines is a relatively young carrier, but one with a wide reach, flying to a variety of destinations in Europe, Africa and the US.

They operate a fleet of 49 aircraft, one of which carries a special livery dedicated to well-loved Belgian cartoon character, Tintin. This colourful aircraft goes by the name of Rackham, derived from the Tintin book titled “Red Rackham’s Treasure” and exudes the very same sort of adventurous spirit as the boy with the unruly yellow coif and little fluffy dog companion.

Brussels Airlines operates about 300 flights a day to over 90 European and African destinations, as well as two US routes.
