Brussels Airlines (SN, Brussels National) has announced the addition of three A320-200Ns in 2023 to replace some of its A319-100s as part of its fleet modernisation programme.

The three new aircraft will be allocated to Brussels Airlines from the order book of its parent Lufthansa (LH, Frankfurt Int'l), which has outstanding orders for fifty-four A320neo. They will be the first-ever new-build aircraft delivered to Brussels Airlines, although the ch-aviation fleets history module shows that two of the carrier's A319-100s were originally delivered to its predecessor Sabena (SN, Brussels National).

The ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows that Brussels Airlines currently operates eighteen A319-100s (16.6 years old on average), sixteen A320-200s (16.9 years), and twelve A330-300 (14.2 years). It is one of two mainline carriers in Lufthansa Group with no new generation narrowbodies in its fleet, besides Austrian Airlines (OS, Vienna). Both Lufthansa and Swiss (LX, Zurich) already operate A320-200Ns and A321-200NXs. Out of the fifty-four A320-200Ns still on order for Lufthansa, at least ten will be allocated to Eurowings (EW, Düsseldorf).
