Belgian BAe 146 and Avro RJ operator SN Brussels Airlines has agreed to merge with rival Virgin Express. Both airlines are based at Bruxelles Zaventem Airport. The two airlines signed a non-binding letter of intent to merge. If the agreement proceeds, it would create a holding company that would control both airlines. The two airlines would, however, continue to operate separately — SN Brussels as a full-service airline and Virgin Express as a low-fare airline.
