Recently, Brussels Airport welcomed Juneyao Air for its very first flight at Brussels Airport. Juneyao Air now offers direct flights to Shanghai, operating three times a week.

Juneyao Air, established in 2005 and based in Shanghai, is a privately-owned airline with a fleet of about 100 aircraft, including 10 Boeing Dreamliners. As a Star Alliance Connecting Partner, Juneyao Air enhances the connectivity between Belgium and China and beyond.

Shanghai is a key destination in Asia, and by adding the offer of Juneyao Air, there are now daily flights from Brussels Airport to Shanghai. This route offers Belgian travellers an excellent gateway to China for both leisure and business, especially with the easing of visa requirements. It also strengthens diplomatic and economic ties between Brussels and Shanghai.

The flight schedule aligns with Brussels Airlines’ network, ensuring seamless connections to Europe, Africa, and North America. Additionally, these flights will boost cargo capacity, supporting trade and economic collaboration between Belgium and China.

This new collaboration was celebrated with a gate event and a water salute to wish passengers and crew good luck on the first flight.
