From October 13, Brussels Airport will welcome back the Japanese airline All Nippon Airways. ANA will then resume flights between Tokyo Narita and Brussels Airport. The route will be operated with passenger aircraft that will be used for cargo only.
This route will be operated three times a week on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which has a 35-tonne belly cargo capacity. ANA has been flying to Brussels Airport since 2015. 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 hopes, together with ANA, to be able to restart passenger flights soon as well.
