The successor to Belgium’s Sabena Airlines unveiled its new name last month as talks continued between shareholders in Sabena regional subsidiary Delta Air Transport (DAT) and Virgin Express to save the country’s flag carrier from extinction. Shareholders chose the name SN Brussels Airlines mainly because it allows the financially strapped carrier to retain the Sabena logo and its SN code for flight numbers. The airline has been flying its fleet of Avro RJs and BAe 146s under the DAT name since Sabena declared bankruptcy in November. Delta Air Transport and Virgin Express hoped to conclude a merger deal by the end of last month.
