SN Brussels postpones Avro RJ replacement


SN Brussels Airlines has postponed a decision to replace its BAe 146 an Avro RJ fleet. In February 2003, SN Brussels announced plans to gradually phase out its fleet of six BAe 146-200s, fourteen Avro RJ85s, and twelve RJ100s. A new type to replace them was to have been selected by the end of 2003. That decision has now been postponed until the end of the year. Indeed, the airline is strongly considering retaining its Avro RJ fleet. “The quality-price ratio is the most important for us,” company spokesman Cedric Leurquin stated, and the Avro RJ fleet “has a very good quality-price ratio.” He also pointed to the type’s low noise level as an advantage.
