The question now is how those 2 Q400 will be replaced, A319? ERJ145? SSJ100?
I guess the moderator sn25567 had the answer some posts ago : SSJ100 with Cityjet ...no ?

Don't forget that CityJet has exercised options to purchase four CRJ900 aircraft from Canadian manufacturer Bombardier.

But don't you think that one of the reasons they want to get rid of those Q400 are maybe to harmonise the regional wet lease fleet? So it would be strange if they replace the Q400 by CRJ900?

If they go for the SSJ100 of cityjet, this would mean that there would be in total 5 SSJ100 leased from them?

How many Avro aircraft are still flying for SN? Registrations? I will fly on 20th June to Bologna, normally on SSJ but they have changed it for RJ100.
Many thanks.

Brussels Airlines has three Avro RJ's left: OO-DWC, OO-DWD and OO-DWE.

To me, it's clear from the start CityJet is to become Brussels Airlines' main wet-lease partner. A substantial fleet of 6 SSJ100 is realistic, once Flybe's Q400's and bmi E145's have left when end of contract.

SSJ100's can also become a part of Brussels Airlines Leisure (operating for Thomas Cook) to destinations where Airbus equipment might be too much of capacity. Something similar to TUI's set-up. Q400's and E145's are not really leisure oriented aircraft.

PS: I hope Brussels Airlines will resume flights to Helsinki and Riga one day!

Riga will be expanded by BT on their CS3 or 737 now and then + it's in codeshare with SN as well as some SN destinations are codeshared with BT and HEL.. ehm Finnair already has the full market and all available flights to and from HEL. Blue1 didn't survive either to maintain the route :(

SN has codeshare flights to HEL. Operated by LH via FRA....

But who will take such flights when direct flights are available with Finnair?

Has the CityJet SSJ contract already been expanded with a fourth aircraft? Because checking fr24, it appears all three SSJ's in SN colors, plus EI-FWC have all been flying pretty full schedules in the past week.

I saw yesterday also a CityJet Avro departing Brussels. So they are probably flying 5 aircrafts in Brussels.

There were two simultaneous CityJet Avro RJ85s in Brussels yesterday morning, for charter flights to Stockholm. Nothing to do with SN operations.

Normally there are currently 3 'FTE's to call it that way, a 4th in back-up at BRU. But they frequently rotate it seems.
