Brussels Airlines (SN, Brussels National) took delivery of its first A320-200neo, OO-SBA (msn 11600), on November 1 after the first-ever new-build aircraft for the Belgian carrier was flown from Toulouse Blagnac to Brussels National. It is the first of five A320neo to join its fleet as part of a Lufthansa Group order.

Brussels Airlines becomes Lufthansa Group's latest A320neo operator following Lufthansa, Lufthansa CityLine, Eurowings, Swiss, and Austrian Airlines. Equipped with 180 seats, OO-SBA has not yet entered scheduled service according to Flightradar24 ADS-B data with Brussels Airlines saying in a press release that it would "carry out a few remaining upgrades on the aircraft in the coming weeks, after which the first commercial flight will take place." Replacing the smaller A319-100s in its fleet, the carrier expects all five A320neo to be delivered by the end of 2024.

Having recently returned two wet-leased CRJ1000s to CityJet (WX, Dublin International), the Belgian carrier currently has an all Airbus fleet with sixteen A319-100s, eighteen A320-200s, as well as nine A330-300s according to ch-aviation fleets data.
