Following the immense popularity of Rackham, Magritte, Trident and Amare, Brussels Airlines is launching a competition to let enthusiasts determine the next Belgian icon to take center stage on their Airbus A320.
“Our Belgian Icons are very well known and are a great tool for people around the world to get to know Belgium. We are a country with many well kept secrets. Everyone knows us for our great beers and chocolate, but most people don’t know that Belgium is also the home of many cartoons, that Belgians invented French Belgian fries, the cassette tape, roller skates and the saxophone. With our Belgian Icons, we aim to put our country on the map, and this time we want our customers to have a say. We hope to get many great ideas for our next Belgian Icon and who knows, we might have to keep some for the 6th one.”
– Bernard Gustin, Brussels Airlines CEO
Everyone with a heart for Belgium, designer or enthousiast, can send in their written idea or even a plane design. A jury of famous Belgians will create a shortlist of the two best ideas. The fans will vote for the final winning idea. Next to eternal fame, the winner gets to follow the entire design process and the painting of the Belgian Icon behind the scenes, he or she will be at te front row during the big reveal event of the plane and will fly on its maiden voyage. The plane will be presented to the public in March 2018.
