Brussels Airlines is a relatively young airline which was founded in 2006. Its tracks can be traced back to 2002 when the company SN Airholding was established in 2002 by a group of 40 investors. At that time SN Airholdings started two airlines, SN Brussels Airlines and Virgin Express which were merged in 2006 and resulted in Brussels Airlines. In 2009, Brussels Airlines got a new shareholder when Lufthansa Group took a large stake in the airline. Eight years later, in 2017, Lufthansa Group also bought the remaining shares and became the full owner of the airline.
