Air Algérie takes a chance by choosing Brussels Charleroi

Air Algérie Brussels

Air Algérie commenced operations between Algiers and Brussels Charleroi on 18 December, with a press conference being held at the Belgian airport to discuss the new twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Sundays) service on the day of the launch. Taking part in proceedings were: Jean-Jacques Cloquet, CEO, Brussels Charleroi Airport; Tommy Leclercq, Governor of the Province of Hainaut; Jean-Luc Crucke, Belgian Minister of Budget, Finance, Energy, Climate and Airports; representative of his Excellency the Ambassador of Algeria to Brussels; and Mohamed Abdou Bouderbala, CEO of Air Algérie.

  • Air Algérie commenced services between Algiers (ALG) and Brussels Charleroi (CRL) on 18 December. The carrier will operate the 1,532-kilometre route twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Sundays) using its mixed fleet of 737s according to OAG schedules. Competition on the route is provided by TUI Airlines Belgium, with it also operating a twice-weekly service on the airport pair this winter. It should be noted that Air Algérie is already serving the Belgian capital, offering a three times weekly service from Algiers to Brussels’ main airport in W18/19. Along with this service, the airline also launched a domestic route before the end of 2018, beginning a weekly (Wednesdays) service between Tamanrasset (TMR) and In Guezzam (INF). The latter 362-kilometre route faces no direct competition, and will be flown by the airline’s fleet of ATR 72-500s. See how Brussels Charleroi Airport’s FTWA compares to other entries from around the globe.
