Brussels Airlines Cargo is the airfreight division of Brussels Airlines. We are a service company, offering an air-shipping solution from the moment of acceptance of the goods at the airport of origin to the moment of delivery at the airport of destination.

Our promise is to move your cargo with speed and care in a timely and secure way to more than 50 European, 19 African destinations and two destinations in the US. Brussels Airlines Cargo applies the highest industry standards of cargo handling.

Brussels Airlines Cargo caters for a broad spectrum of cargo commodities. We are, among others, specialised in carrying perishables "fresh to shelf". We also convey post office mail with care and attention.

Brussels Airlines Cargo transports cargo commodities allowed for transportation on a passenger aircraft and within the belly capacity of these aircraft.


We are specialised in operating to and from Africa; the major part of our imports from Africa are perishables.

Valuable cargo
