Brussels Airlines increases frequencies to Bristol and Newcastle
Brussels Airlines is optimising its flight offer between Belgium and the UK with an increase in frequencies to and from Bristol and Newcastle. From 10 January 2010, the airline will offer 3 daily flights to these regional UK airports, as opposed to the twice and once-daily frequencies on offer today. London Heathrow will also benefit from four daily flights operated on Brussels Airlines aircraft.
This increase in flights from between Brussels and Bristol is a response to market demand. In effect, with weekday flights in the morning, the middle of the day and in the evening, passengers flying for business can now spend a full day on site, and the new schedules also give excellent onward connections to a large number of destinations on our European and African networks.
Flights to Bristol and Newcastle will be operated on Embraer Regional Jets, supplied by bmi. A co-member of Star Alliance, bmi is a part of the Lufthansa Group, which is a strategic partner of Brussels Airlines.

From 10 January, Brussels Airlines will also operate 4 daily flights between London Heathrow and the captial of Europe. Following the cessation on 9 January of the bmi service on this route, Brussels Airlines will replace this service with a full programme of flights. In line with this strategic decision, the airline will terminate its reduced service between London Gatwick and Brussels. ‘In offering a service to and from London Heathrow, we can give our passengers a better service, as well as better connections to our Star Alliance partner networks flying our of Heathrow.’ explains Erik Follet, Executive Vice President Network at Brussels Airlines. Brussels Airlines will offer 4 daily flights between LHR and BRU from 10 January – two morning and two evening flights.
