Base: Brussels, Ostend
IATA: *
ICAO: LU
Fleet: 1x B727-100 (OO-ATJ)
History: Transjet was formed on September 24 1979 to provide cargo charters from Belgian airports to points in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. On November 21 1980, an ex Lufthansa B727-100C was delivered and services started during early 1981 specializing in movement of livestock, hazardous and oil related cargos. The first year of operation was quite successful, but afterwards business declined significantly due to heavy competition in this market segment and on April 1 1983 the company ceased altogether.
