BRUSSELS AIRLINES To Update Fleet With New A330s & New Cabins!

Brussels Airlines has announced plans to retire the majority of their existing A330 aircraft and replace them with brand new A330s as it seeks to update its fleet.    According to their strategy, 7 of their 10 A330s will be swapped for new ones during 2018 and 2019.

What makes this an even bigger deal is the fact that along with the new aircraft,’SN’ will introduce an entirely new cabin interior.    Business Class, Economy Privilege, and Economy will all receive substantial facelifts.

Though specifics have not yet been decided upon, I suspect the new cabin interiors will be in line with the new cabins that will be introduced by Lufthansa, SWISS, and Austrian beginning in 2018.    LH Group had previously stated that they have the desire to create a standardized cabin across the Group’s airlines.   With Brussels now being a wholly owned division of LH Group, it stands to reason that Brussels Airlines will benefit from the strategy.

I look forward to seeing what ‘SN’ comes up with when the new birds begin joining the fleet.   I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing their wonderful Business Class product and am curious how they’ll make it even better!
