With that, we also rebranded Brussels Airlines entirely to make it a future-proof brand. The strategy, including its “no compromise” positioning, is clearly paying off and has reinforced Brussels Airlines’ market position. In a fast-paced industry, with high competition, traveling has become a fast moving consumer good.  With Tanguy, we welcome a very experienced marketer to our company who is sure to be able to implement a sustainable marketing strategy and to keep Brussels Airlines one step ahead."
