Brussels Airlines sets sail for India and other new destinations in 2017

On March 26, Brussels Airlines welcomes the summer season with new destinations and higher flight frequencies. Highlights of the schedule are the launch of the new Mumbai route and the growth of the European network with new leisure destinations.

Both the European and intercontinental offer grow significantly during the 2017 summer season, which runs from end of March till October. In an average summer week, Brussels Airlines offers 8 percent more seats compared to last year. An overview of what’s to come:

Short and mid haul

  • With Palma de Mallorca (Spain), Rhodes (Greece), Funchal (Portugal) and Comiso (Sicily), Brussels Airlines adds 4 popular vacation islands to its network of leisure destinations.
     
  • Yerevan (Armenia), a destination that already welcomed Brussels Airlines charter flights during the winter season and was not directly connected to Belgium before, will be operated weekly and even two times per week in July and August.

 

Brussels Airlines also increases its number of flights to many existing destinations. Porto and Lisbon are served twice a day during the whole summer and Faro in the Algarve is served daily. The popular vacation destination Alicante (Spanish Costa Blanca) will also be connected daily. More frequencies are also added on the routes to Ibiza, Billund, Bordeaux, Paris CDG, Nantes, Naples, Warsaw and Athens.

The seat offer to Milan Linate, Milan Malpensa, Oslo, Marseille, London Heathrow, Florence, Bologna, Madrid, Rome, Geneva, Vienna and Hamburg will also grow significantly thanks to the use of larger aircraft on these routes.
