Immediately after the group stage draw and the announcement of the game locations, Brussels Airlines and the RBFA started planning flights to fly the national team as well as the world’s best fans to Russia. The result is a series of fan flight packages to bring the football fans to Sochi, Moscow and Kaliningrad for the games against Panama, Tunisia and England.
Thanks to the different fan flight options, the fans can choose to do a same-day return (depart in the morning and return immediately after the game), stay on location for a few days and discover the city, or stay for the entire group stage. (‘First Stage Fan Flight’). Another option is an open return ticket (‘Follow Belgium Fan Flight’) for the fans who want to stay in Russia until the national team returns. Brussels Airlines offers 2,800 seats on 12 flights in total for the Red Devils fans. In the same day return option, transport to and from the football stadium is included. Tickets to the World Cup games are never included in a Fan Flight package. More information and reservation via brusselsairlines.com.
Members of the Red Devils fan club 1895 benefit from a discount on the fan flight packages. Brussels Airlines also created a special B2B package with special advantages, including airport lounge access (available for groups of 10 persons or more).
If the Red Devils go through to the eighth-finals, Brussels Airlines will schedule new flights to bring the Belgian fans to Russia.
Since 2014, Brussels Airlines is the official airline of the Belgian Red Devils. The team relies on Brussels Airlines for all its official travels by plane. Not just any plane, but the official Belgian Red Devils aircraft ‘Trident’, a devilish red Airbus A320 that the airline had repainted as a tribute to the national team. Also for the previous World Cup in Brazil and the European Championship in France, Brussels Airlines flew the team and its fans across the globe.
