Brunant Air (IATA: BN - ICAO: BRU - Callsign: BRUNANT) is the official flag carrier of Brunant. It succeeded former flag carrier Nationale Luchtwegen in 1975 after Nationale Luchtwegen went bankrupt. It is a founding member of Flite Group, formerly a member of Eagle Alliance. As part of a membership status, Air Lovia has began codesharing with Brunant Air. Currently, Brunant Air occupies 56% of Brunanter aerospace.
After Nationale Luchtwegen collapsed, Air France began monopolizing Brunater aerospace. Without any domestic airline based in Brunant, Brunanter aviation was effectively controlled by foreign companies. As a result, Air France was kicked out of Bruanter aerospace. Immediately afterwards (with no aerospace activity in Brunant), Brunant Air was founded in April 1975 as a consortium between former Nationale Luchtwegen owners and various other businessmen (as well as a 30% stake for the state). Service began in October of that year, with flights to southern France and Mallorca/Majorca. By 1976 there were regular flights to Paris, London, Madrid and Barcelona, as well as other Western European cities. With the opening of Grijzestad Airport it has smaller flights between both airports. In 2007 regional airline FlyBlue partnered with Brunant Air and was eventually bought in 2010. A consortium acquired a 35% stake in 2011, and they are hoping to immediately begin codesharing with Air Lovia. In 2014, the consortium of businesspeople sold 70% of the airline to Lewis Adams after citing insufficient profits, hoping that the new owner can help the airline. The 30% is still owned by the state.

After 30% of the ownership was passed onto Lewis Adams, the new director/manager announced that he would imrpove the airline to make it world class. He has started to replace most of the fleet with modern aircraft, with the exception of domestic flights, whom he had bought a few used Dassault Mercures for that purpose (it is the only operator of Dassault Mercures after the intial retirement of the planes by the liquidation of Air Inter).
- 3 Dassault Mercures (used on domestic flight only)
- 2 Airbus A320 (international short haul flights)
- 3 Airbus A380 (international long haul flights)
- 4 Boeing 757 (international medium haul flights)
Lewis Adams has announced on September 12, 2014 that Brunant Air has placed a few orders for ATR-42-500s to replace the aging Dassault Mercures, the main reason being that "maintenance for the Mercures are becoming too expensive to maintain". The first delivery is planned to be on October 2014, due to ATR's quick production schedule.
