“The award for the Best Trans-Atlantic Airline is a great acknowledgement for everyone working at Brussels Airlines and encourages us to continue improving our services and products and to go the extra smile on the ground as well as in the air. This year, we also make significant investments to offer an even better travel experience for our guests flying to and from North America and also Africa. We strive to make the journey as important as the destination, which is why we are busy rejuvenating our A330 long-haul fleet. With the new long-haul aircraft, Brussels Airlines will be able to offer its customers even more comfort, with quieter, more efficient and environmentally friendlier planes. Besides new aircraft, we are also gradually refurbishing our entire intercontinental fleet to ensure that all our guests will be able to look forward to superior seat comfort and a high-standard on-board experience.”
