First Airbus A320s for Brussels Airlines


Airbus A320 Brussels Airlines

Airbus A320-214 OO-SNA is seen returning at Brussels airport on a flight from Madrid on 25 April 2011. OO-SNA is the first of the type for the Belgian carrier. A few days earlier, it was joined by a second aircraft of the same type, which can be seen parked in the background, under the nose of OO-SNA.



Both Airbus A320-214, OO-SNA (c/n 1441) and OO-SNB (c/n 1493) were built in 2001 and subsequently delivered as D-ALTC and D-ALTD to the German carrier LTU in April and June 2001 respectively. After LTU merged with Air Berlin, both aircraft were transferred to Air Berlin in November 2007.

D-ALTC was delivered from Düsseldorf to Brussels on 11 February 2011 and started regular passenger service on 22 April 2011. The second Airbus A320-214 arrived in Brussels on 21 April 2011 in full Brussels Airlines colours, but with its new serial number OO-SNB still covered by D-ALTD.
