On May 30, Air Canada landed an Airbus 330-300 at Brussels Airport. A first.
Since June 2010, Air Canada daily operates the Brussels-Montreal route. Until now, these flights were operated with 211-seat Boein 767 aircraft. Due to the success of this new route, the airline has decided to increase the capacity on the Brussels route using 265 seat Airbus 330-300 aircraft for the summer season. The airliner was saluted by the airport fire department upon its arrival at the gate.
