As from IATA Winter schedules of this year Hong-Kong Airlines (part of HNA Group) is to launch a thrice weekly flight beteween Brussels and Hong-Kong with their new A330. It will be their second long-haul route after Moscow.
That was revealed this morning in two Belgian newspapers.They will already launch a cargo A330 flight in September.
Hainan already flies 3x week from PVG to BRU and 4x week from PEK to BRU. HNA Group had already a large portfolio of investments in Belgium (hotels,...).
For the launch of the HKG route they will get a financial support of the Flemish Govt (up to 1.5m Euros).

Funny, the other day I actually needed a ticket to BRU. Great to see someone is entering the market with a non-stop. Very curious about HK Airlines long haul product. I see the A330 here in HK daily and will have to try and pay a visit one of this afternoons.
