Air Belgium will deploy the aircraft on routes connecting Brussels to long-haul destinations. The aircraft is furnished with the Airspace cabin. All seats are equipped with the latest-generation, in-flight entertainment system, on-board wifi and mood lighting. The Belgian carrier currently operates an all-Airbus widebody fleet comprising A330-200F and A340-300. The A340s will be gradually replaced by the A330neos.

With an order book of more than 1,800 aircraft from 126 customers at the end of September 2021, the A330 remains the most popular widebody family aircraft of all time.
