ASL Airlines Belgium has confirmed that the B747-400 freighter (OE-ILC) leased from China Airlines will operate on its long haul network, “in the main between Liege and China” said a spokesperson.

Based at Liege airport, ASL Airlines Belgium is a member of the ASL Aviation Holdings Group.

It specialises in the express freight market and also offers scheduled, charter and ad-hoc flights with aircraft including the Boeing 747-400F and the Boeing 737-800F and 400F.

Added the spokesperson: “The aircraft is leased from China Airlines and all we can say now is that the lease is for a number of years.
