Brussels Airlines reinforces its European leisure offer

In the summer season of 2014, which runs from March 30 until October 26, Brussels Airlines adds new leisure destinations to its European network. The schedule of several existing destinations is being optimized to improve the connectivity within the Brussels Airlines network and the flight frequency to Tel Aviv will be increased.

March 30, 2014 marks the start of a new summer season in the aviation industry and brings along several novelties in the Brussels Airlines network. The Belgian airline adds new European leisure destinations. Holiday makers will be offered four weekly flights to three destinations on the popular French island Corsica, i.e. Bastia, Ajaccio and Figari. Just like last year, popular seasonal destinations will be reintroduced into the schedule for summer season, i.e. Catania and Palermo on the island of Sicily, Naples, Florence, Faro, Porto, Marrakech and Agadir.
Alicante, which will be served by Brussels Airlines 3 times per week starting October 26, 2013, will be continued throughout the summer of 2014.

Brussels Airlines returns to the Greek market after a year of absence: Athens will be reintroduced in the schedule next summer with 3 flights per week between Brussels Airport and the Greek capital.

For some existing destinations the flight times will be adapted to ensure better connections within the network. The biggest change is on the Budapest route: the last flight of the day to Budapest will depart from Brussels at a later time (20:50) and the first flight from Budapest to Brussels will land earlier in Brussels (8:40) to allow convenient one-day round-trips and connections to the European and intercontinental network of Brussels Airlines.

Tel Aviv, which is served by the airline on a daily basis and twice a day on Sundays, will get 3 extra frequencies per week. Starting end of March a morning flight will be offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays to create better connection possibilities.
