The Smurfs and Art Nouveau finalists for the 5th Belgian Icon

At the beginning of August Brussels Airlines launched a competition to let aviation enthusiasts and fans determine the 5th Belgian icon in its series of special planes dedicated to famous Belgians or Belgian culture. The airline received a total of 1415 ideas and designs representing what Belgium stands for.

Earlier today the jury announced the two best inspirational ideas which are surprising, typically Belgian and most importantly, well-known all over the world.

Marta M. created a design inspired by The Smurfs – who will celebrate their 60th anniversary in 2018 – and drew them as members of Brussels Airlines crew and passengers.

Ahmet S. created a design inspired by Art Nouveau and architect Victor Horta.The public now have until midnight, 24 September to surf to and vote for their favourite design.

We look forward to our next CruiseToTravel adventure onboard the new plane when it is revealed in the spring of 2018.
