Air Belgium to stop its Charleroi-Hong Kong linkFriday, 21 September 2018 15:58
On the reasons for the discontinuation, a source cites a “change of business model”, without wanting to comment further. Air Belgium had hoped to transport 500,000 passengers in one year between Belgium and China. But the airline is struggling to fill its planes to Hong Kong. The weather, especially the recent typhoon that swept the region, is also advanced as one of reasons for the cancellation.
Air Belgium has a fleet of four aircraft (Airbus A340). These will be used for flights for other companies, as was already the case, to a certain degree. For example, one plane is currently operating on behalf of British Airways. The airline also wanted to set up scheduled flights to other destinations in China (Zhengzhou, Wuhan and Taiyuan), but these plans will not be carried out either.
