Brussels Airlines launches new destination on the Belgian holiday market: Kalamata in the Greek Peloponnesus

Next summer, Brussels Airlines sets sail for a new Greek holiday destination. Currently not directly served from Brussels, Kalamata will be connected to Brussels Airport on a weekly basis.

Located on the magnificent Peloponnesus peninsula in the heart of Messenia, the Kalamata region is one of the fastest growing tourism destinations in Greece. Since the development of the regional airport some years ago, Kalamata has been picked up by many French, German, Italian, British and Scandinavian travelers.

Thanks to Brussels Airlines’ new service that starts on 28 April 2018, Kalamata will also be reachable from Brussels Airport with just a 3 hour flight.

Azure blue sea, beautiful sandy beaches, endless olive gardens home to the world famous Kalamata olive, 4500 years of history and a paradise for foodies… The Kalamata region has all the ingredients for both an active, cultural and historic holiday as well as a relaxing family holiday. The city of Kalamata is well worth a visit and is the perfect starting point to discover the region. Historic places like Olympia, Methoni, Nafplio and Mystros are nearby. Also the theater of Epidaurus is not far away.
Very popular are the Costa Navarino resorts where a few beautiful luxury hotels are integrated in the idyllic landscape.

 

“With Kalamata we introduce the Belgian holidaymakers to a new very authentic destination. Those who want to explore the area on their own, can book a flight only via Brussels Airlines, but we are also cooperating with several tour operators who have already decided to add Kalamata to their holiday offer now that we offer direct flights. Thanks to its infrastructure, the region is also very interesting for Meetings and Incentives travel (so-called MICE travel)”

-- Frédéric Dechamps,  Vice President Sales Benelux Brussels Airlines
