Our Airbus A320 with registration number OO-SNA is dedicated to our national pride: the Belgian Red Devils. For everything they have given us in their rise to the top, and for all the exciting matches still ahead of us.
Sporting the faces of our national football players including Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and so many more, our Airbus will take to the skies throughout Europe.
And it gets better! Not only is the outside of this marvellous aircraft painted with the faces of these stars, the inside is painted as well! The overhead bins are illustrated with 33 Belgian Red Devils players and their coaches, including Marc Wilmots and Vital Borkelmans, together with several of the best Belgian football fans.
The Belgian Red Devils are one of the biggest ambassadors of our country and we are proud to be their official airline. One of our goals at Brussels Airlines is to bring people together, and that's exactly what our Belgian Red Devils do as well: they unite a nation. It is with great pleasure that we will fly them to the European Championship in France, as well as to every single game abroad over the coming years.
Together, we look forward to welcoming you on board our Trident aircraft.
Why did you choose the Belgian Red Devils?
The Belgian Red Devils inspire others to follow their dreams. To never give up. To spread their wings. To succeed as a team. We've designed this plane for the passion and enthusiasm that the Belgian Red Devils inspire in their fans. For all the hugs and high fives that everyone has shared. That's why we have created Trident as part of our aircraft series in honour of Belgian icons. Because this is what the Belgian Red Devils are. Belgian icons.
What does Trident mean?
The trident is the eye-catching symbol of the Belgian Red Devils. As well as on their logo, you will see the trident everywhere in a stadium when the national team plays their games. And from now on, you will also see it in the air.
Who designed Trident?
In November 2015, we gathered the Belgian Red Devils and invited them to design their own plane. To make it just a little more fun, we divided them into teams and turned it into a competition.
Jean-Francois Gillet, Jason Denayer and Mitchy Batchuai were keen to have their journey from Brussels to the championship final in Paris pictured on the aircraft. Their design included a goal, the Euro Cup trophy, the Eiffel Tower and the Atomium. Luis Pedro Cavanda, Kevin Mirralas and Christian Benteke came up with a design that was close to the final design (but not quite!). Their aircraft was a third red, and it had the Belgian flag and their initials on it. Sven Kums, Romelu Lukaku and Simon Mignolet decided to go the patriotic route and used the colours of the Belgian flag as inspiration. Their aircraft was painted entirely black with red and yellow accents. Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertongen and Matz Sels came up with a design that was futuristic and colourful. Axel Witsel and Eden Hazard also took a patriotic approach to their aircraft – their design showed the Belgium flag in its entirety. Dries Mertens, Kevin De Bruyne and Radja Nainggolan wrapped the colours of the Belgian flag around their aircraft. The Belgian Football Federation logo and #TOUSENFRANCE lent the finishing touches.> Vincent Kompany's aircraft would go on to become the winning design. He painted the entire aircraft in red, and that's very nearly just how Trident looks today! Thomas Vermaelen, Nicolas Lombaerts and Yannick Carrasco were another trio who used the Belgian colours in their design. And they had not one, but three gold Eiffel Towers! We can only guess that it was one for each of them. Laurent Depoitre, Moussa Dembele and Thomas Meunier had the words #TOUS EN FRANCE scrawled in large letters across their design and… you guessed it… they wrapped the front half of their design with the Belgian flag. to see the various designs that our talented national football team players came up with!
