Turkish airlines has 4 daily flights between Brussels airport and Istanbul airport in 2010. Most of these flight are with their Boeing 737-800 or Airbus A320 family of airliners, but during July and August, when traffic is peaking, they do fly their Airbus A330-200 on the route. In 2010 they fly only 7 of them and normally they are used on long halu routes. There is a large Turkish community in Belgium. In the golden 1960ies when the Belgian economy was booming, Turkish families have been invited to migrate to Belgium. Behind the airliner you see pier B at Brussels airport. That pier is used for flights with passport control.  With the Schengen agreement passport control has been abolished between several European countries.
