Brussels Airlines plans for busy summer season with 85 destinations and a focus on its holiday offer

The airline’s network welcomes 8 new destinations

This coming summer season, starting on March 27, Brussels Airlines will offer 85 destinations, with a focus on leisure. Newcomers in the airline’s summer portfolio compared to last year are Arecife (Lanzarote), Chania (Crete), Hurghada (Egypt), Mytilene (Lesbos), Samos, Marrakesh ( Morocco), Rabat (Morocco) and Munich.

After a winter which was still heavily impacted by the global pandemic, Brussels Airlines predicts a very busy summer season.

“The booking figures clearly show a great willingness to travel. Compared to the summer of 2021, we also see that passengers start to book longer in advance again, especially for the school holiday periods. Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Greek Islands are expected to be the most popular destinations this summer season. That’s why we are happy to add the islands Lesbos and Samos in Greece to our network, but also Lanzarote and Crete will be an added value in our vacation portfolio.”

  • Jan Derycke, Head of Network and Planning Brussels Airlines
