"With the integration of the cargo capacities of Brussels Airlines, the offer for our customers will become even more attractive and even larger," said Alexis von Hoensbroech, Lufthansa Cargo CCO.

Brussels Airlines new CEO Christina Foerster added: "Lufthansa Cargo has a lot of experience in marketing the cargo capacities of passenger airlines. This cooperation will help us to make even better use of the freight capacities of our fleet. And we, as the European Africa specialist, can add new destinations to Lufthansa Cargo's offering."

The Belgian airline subsidiary of Lufthansa has just launched its fifth airplane iconography chosen by the traveling public. The latest depicts ‘The Smurfs’ design by Italian Marta Mascellani on an A320 aptly named ‘Aerosmurf’.

“To design our fifth Icon we wanted to ask the public who they wish to see flying through the skies as an ambassador for Belgium,” explained Tanguy Cartuyvels, the airline's vice president Marketing. “That’s why we launched a contest last year to which everyone with a heart for Belgium, every enthusiast and every designer could participate by sending in their idea or plane design. And we received an overwhelming amount of ideas, from fries to the saxophone.”

The first four examples of iconic flying Belgian artwork are: Rackham (Tintin), Magritte, Trident (Red Devils) and Amare (Tomorrowland).
