All Nippon Airways adds cargo-only flights to Brussels

By Rachelle Harry

All Nippon Airways is resuming flights to Brussels Airport from October 13.

Flights to the hub will be carried out with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner passenger aircraft, which has a 35-tonne capacity for bellyhold cargo.

The aircraft will be used for cargo-only operations on the route and will not transport passengers to Brussels Airport.

“After a temporary suspension of flights due to the current Covid crisis, the direct connection between Belgium and Japan will now be re-established,” the airport said. “We hope, together with ANA, to be able to restart passenger flights soon as well”.

ANA has been flying to Brussels Airport since 2015.

Last week, Air Cargo News announced that ANA and Atlas Air will launch a code share partnership on flights across the transpacific in October.

The code share agreement will see ANA tender shipments to Atlas for transportation.
