Brussels Airlines today unveiled its Airbus A320 (OO-SNO) representing both the male Belgian football team and the Red Flames, the national women’s team.
The red aircraft with dark tail represents a trident that seamlessly blends into a flame, the perfect mix of the logos of both teams. That is exactly what the plane symbolizes: “We are not complete until we are together”. The new Trident (above) will take off for the very first time on November 16 (flight SN3633) from Brussels Airport to Paris.
It was yet again André Eisele, Europe’s most experienced XXL-Airbrush artist and described as ‘the painting machine’, who painted the new Trident with the finest airbrush technique.
Original Trident left the fleet after 6,5 years
The previous Trident, dedicated to the Red Devils, was revealed in April 2016 and has flown our national football team to several games, amongst which the European Championships in Bordeaux in 2016 and the World Cup in Russia in 2018.
Earlier this year, Trident also flew the Red Flames to England for the European Championships.
End of October 2022, the Airbus A320 (OO-SNA) (below) was handed back to the lessor after more than 8,000 flights bringing Brussels Airlines’ passengers all over Europe.
