Singapore Airlines has been the longest operating cargo carrier at Brussels Airport and on 4 September the airline marked its 35th year of cargo operations at the Belgian airport.
The airline started its full freighter operations at Brussels Airport on 4 September 1988 and has been known for ‘around the world’ cargo flights, flying from Asia to the US and then back to Singapore via Brussels and the Middle East.
The airline has a local entity at the airport and a European headquarters for its operations at Brucargo, offering reliable operations. The airline has loaded and unloaded various types of cargo at the air hub, transporting electronics, perishables and general cargo from the US, as well as pharmaceuticals and oversized cargo like large machines and machine parts from Brussels bound for Asia.
Brussels Airport said SIA is remains a key cargo partner, and with the same drive towards steering to more sustainable operations, the air hub is looking forward to the launch of the airline’s future A350 freighter come 2025.
