In the last ten years Brussels Airport has gained connections to Shenzhen (Hainan Airlines), Tokyo (ANA), Bangkok (Thai Airways) and Hong Kong (Cathay Pacific). Hainan Airlines has flown Brussels-Beijing since 2006, but suspended its Brussels-Shanghai flights this winter.

Singapore Airlines already flies nonstop to Brussels Airport’s bigger northern neighbour, Amsterdam Schiphol, which has more links to Asia.

“We are excited to launch services to Brussels, a city that is both an important economic and political hub in Europe,” said Tan Kai Ping, Singapore Airlines’ Senior vice president for marketing planning.

“This also represents SIA’s commitment to constantly expand our network reach and provide our customers with a more seamless travel experience.”
