Niky Terzakis, Chief Executive Officer at Air Belgium, said, “We’re thrilled to launch our first-ever route, which is the result of two years of great teamwork. Air Belgium’s promise is to deliver affordable, Belgian hospitality and direct access between Brussels Charleroi and Hong Kong, both regional platforms. This is an exciting first step for us as we continue to grow our business in the region.”
