“Oscar Oscar – Sierra Foxtrot Tango”, Brussels Airlines’ 10th Airbus A330 just entered Belgian airspace, forum member ryandaughter discovered this evening.
Former HB-IQI (ex-SWISS, ex-Edelweiss) is registered OO-SFT*, powered with 2 Pratt & Whitney engines and its first flight dates 13/07/1999
* registration OO-SFT was also used at Sabena, but with a different A330 (that A330 is currently flying for Air Berlin, before Lufthansa and SWISS).
Brussels Airlines is expanding its long-haul network with flights to Mumbai.
