European network

11 new destinations make their debut in this year’s summer schedule: Ajaccio, Athens, Bari, Bastia, Cagliari, Figari, Krakow, Malta, Montpellier, Seville and Warsaw. Several existing routes will have additional flight frequencies, including Catania, Faro, Florence, Lisbon, Madrid, Malaga, Marseille, Palermo, Marrakech and Stockholm Bromma. Like last year, Brussels Airlines also reopens Porto as a summer route. The city bears this year’s title of “Europe’s Best Destination”.

The short- and medium haul network consists of a total of 58 destinations this summer and is further complemented by codeshare destinations operated by partner airlines.

“Next to our well-established offer for the business traveler, we wanted to also increase the attractiveness of our leisure network. With this network expansion, we offer more than ever an excellent range of holiday destinations”,

-- Frédéric Dechamps, Vice President Sales Benelux, Europe and America.

Long-haul network

This summer, the Brussels Airlines long-haul network is also further optimized with additional flight frequencies. An additional flight is scheduled to Luanda (Angola) and Bujumbura (Burundi). This brings the number of weekly flights to these destinations to three instead of two. An additional (fifth) weekly flight is scheduled to operate to Nairobi (Kenya). The intercontinental network includes a total of 2 destinations to the United States and 19 destinations to Africa.
