SN Airholding was created in 2002, directly after the bankruptcy of the Belgian national airline Sabena. The primary aim of this group was to ensure the continuity of a reliable air connection to and from Brussels, the capital of Europe, and this in the context of the extensive perturbations caused by Sabena’s cessation. The new company was called SN Brussels Airlines, and it posted its first positive results as early as 2003. In October 2004, it was decided that SN Brussels Airlines and Virgin Express would join together under the general ownership of SN Airholding, but would each retain their brand and operations independence in the market.
Subsequently, in March 2006, the two companies announce the merger and presented to the public a new name – Brussels Airlines – and a brand new range of innovative fare products. Brussels Airlines is owned by SN Airholding and is backed up by some 80 years of Belgian aeronautical experience.
On September 2008,
Lufthansa Group announced an equity investment in the Belgian airline.
On December 2008 Brussels Airlines was officially invited to join Star Alliance. On December 2009 the integration of Brussels Airlines into the Star Alliance was effective.
