Brussels Airlines is a Belgian airline based in Brussels and based at Brussels-Zaventem Airport. It is a subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and a member of the aviation alliance Star Alliance.

Brussels Airlines was founded by the merger of SN Brussels Airlines, which emerged from the Sabena subsidiary Delta Air Transport, and the Virgin Express. The first flight took place on March 25, 2007 under the name of Brussels Airlines and the IATA airline code "SN", which was taken over by SN Brussels Airlines. This code already carried the flights of the Sabena, so that one had intended to express the origin of the airline. The Sabena was very popular in Belgium and part of national pride. Its bankruptcy became the largest corporate bankruptcy in Belgian history. Since the fate of Sabena was then sealed by foreign investors such as Swissair, the establishment of SN Brussels Airlines placed the highest priority on maintaining Belgian identity and independence. For this reason, the owners of the new company Brussels Airlines were 40 Belgian investors, who together manage a stake of just over 70 percent of the shares. By merger with the Virgin Express end of 2004, however, the airline Virgin Atlantic of the entrepreneur Richard Branson became the largest shareholder. In 2007, the first year in the company's history, Brussels Airlines carried 5.8 million passengers and achieved a net profit of € 23.1 million.

On March 24, 2009, Brussels Airlines and Deutsche Lufthansa announced the extension of their cooperation. Thus, codeshare flights were carried out on the routes between Brussels and Frankfurt am Main, Berlin, Hamburg, Hanover, Nuremberg and Stuttgart. The mutual use of airport lounges and the collection of bonus miles has been simplified. Later, African goals were also included. Brussels Airlines has been part of the Lufthansa Group since 1 July 2009. On 9 December 2009, Brussels Airlines joined the aviation alliance Star Alliance.

In the summer of 2010, media reports were published, according to which the establishment of a new Congolese airline by Brussels Airlines with the help of the parent company Lufthansa and local investors under the project name Korongo Airlines is in planning. However, this was only from 2012-2015 in operation.
In autumn 2012, Brussels Airlines retired its last Boeing 737-400. In September 2016, the Lufthansa Supervisory Board approved the complete takeover of Brussels Airlines. On 30 March 2017, the information was circulated that Brussels Airlines took over Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium. This will stop its own flight operations in November 2017.
From April 2018, Brussels Airlines will operate long-haul flights from Dusseldorf on behalf of Eurowings with aircraft of the type A330-300 and A340-300.

Passenger numbers

In spite of a challenging market environment, in 2017 Brussels Airlines continued on its growth path of recent years and posted a positive result for the third consecutive year. Brussels Airlines' seating capacity increased by 11% compared to 2016, particularly in the European route network, following the expiry of the AVRO RJ100 fleet (100 seats) and partial replacement by the larger Airbus A319 / 320 (140/180 seats). The increased capacity in the long haul area was realized through the use of an Airbus A330, which was mainly used on the new Mumbai route. The additional seats have resulted in passenger growth of 17.3%, allowing Brussels Airlines to exceed the 9 million passenger mark for the first time in its history (one million more than originally planned) and a seat load factor of 78.8% ( + 4.1 pp and only 1.8 pp below the ambitious target of 2018), also a record for Brussels Airlines.
