A339 AirBelgium 640Air Belgium to lease 2 A330-900s

Air Belgium is set to lease two A330-900s via Air Lease Corporation. The aircraft involved are MSNs 1844 and 1861 which are currently being prepared for delivery at Toulouse-Blagnac. Originally the duo was destined to be leased by ALC to RwandAir and had both been painted and ready for delivery when the lease-deal was cancelled.

It's expected that the two A330neos will replace the airline's current passenger-fleet of three A340-300s, of which one is currently in storage at Tarbes-Lourdes since 19 October 2020. Earlier this year, the airline also started operating four A330-200Fs for CMA CGM, which acquired the aircraft from Qatar Airways.
