Meet Aerosmurf


Aerosmurf is our 5th Belgian Icon and is dedicated to Belgium's beloved small, blue characters, the Smurfs, who have delighted generations all over the globe. Cartoonist Peyo's world has been conquering the hearts of both children and adults for 60 years. This is why our Airbus A320 with registration number OO-SND will take the Smurfs to new heights.

But there is more! In addition to these lovely blue characters on the outside of this unique aircraft, the inside is decorated as well. Follow the Smurfs' footprints on the carpet to your seat while enjoying the Smurfs music and movie. Aerosmurf is also the first plane in our Brussels Airlines fleet with a design on its belly - Gargamel and Azrael are sneaking onto the plane!

This inspiring design of the Smurfs was selected following a contest in August 2017 which drew more than 1,400 submissions. The final winning idea of a Smurf design by Marta Mascellani was chosen by public vote.

Questions about Aerosmurf

What does Aerosmurf mean?

The name of the aircraft is the title of a Smurf comic album which tells the story of a little Smurf whose dream is to fly.

This little Smurf tried several ideas: he stuck feathers on his back, locked himself in a bubble of soap, was catapulted into the air, ... But none of these worked. Until he built a plane!

And since then, he has been known as Aerosmurf!
