Air Belgium is a Belgian airline, based at Brussels South Charleroi Airport. Operations commenced in June 2018, with intentions to link Belgium to mainland China.
On 29 March 2018, the airline flew its first service by operating its Airbus A340-300, on behalf of Suriname Airways, from Amsterdam to Paramarib. The airline then started operating a scheduled service between Charleroi and Hong Kong. This service was suspended over the winter of 2018; the plan was to re-commence by March 2019, however, Air-Belgium announced that the route has been terminated. Instead, the airline is working towards new services to mainland China in mid-2019, and to the Americas in late 2019 or early 2020.
Air Belgium prides itself on offering enjoyable and affordable flights, through their dedicated team.
There are varying baggage policies for passengers travelling in different cabin classes - see below for more information.
Each passenger is allowed one item of hand baggage (size dimensions 55cm high X 35cm wide X 25cm deep – including wheels and handles) and one small accessory. These may be a total of 10kg and all pieces must fit under the seat or in the overhead compartment. Pieces of hand baggage exceeding these limits have to be checked in. As the stowage space in the cabin is limited, we will transport them in the hold of the aircraft if required. This is in the interests of your own and other passengers' safety and comfort.
Business class passengers are allowed two pieces of hand luggage which should not exceed 10kg each and a total of 16kg. Business class passengers may also have a small accessory such as a laptop bag or handbag.
One piece of checked baggage is allowed (size restrictions of height + width + depth (including wheels and handles) = 158cm maximum), providing it does not exceed a maximum weight of 23kg
