Air Belgium allowed to make charters to Canada

Air Belgium has been now allowed to make charters to Canada, Airlineroute on Twitter said.

After a search on Google, it has been confirmed by Canadian Transportation Agency, which has indeed allowed the young Belgian airline to make charters between Belgium and Canada only, so not yet to scheduled services.

Air Belgium was already allowed to operate flights between USA and Europe as scheduled or charter, as from December 2018.

AB should fly to America on their own as from 2021 or 2022.
