Brussels Airlines starts scheduled service to Alicante
The Spanish Costa Blanca is a much loved holiday destination all year round, thanks to its fantastic climate, the extensive tourist infrastructure and the stunning coastline. The Belgians are, after the British and the Dutch, the third largest group of visitors. They stay in hotels or stay in one of the many apartments and holiday homes in Belgian possession.
Starting 26 October Brussels Airlines will operate direct flights to Alicante. The capital of the Alicante province is located in the heart of this popular Spanish Costa and is the perfect gateway to the main beach resorts.
Alicante is the fifth destination in Spain for Brussels Airlines and completes the existing daily flight offer to Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga and Bilbao.
“With the launch of Alicante we can now offer Brussels Airlines passengers a comfortable travel option to the two most important holiday regions on the Spanish mainland: The Costa Blanca via Alicante and the Costa Del Sol/Andalusia via Malaga”, says Brussels airlines CCO Lars Redeligx. “With Alicante, a top destination in the Belgian travel market, we extend our flight offer to sun destinations even more. Vacationers who wish to travel to the South, have a wide array of choice at Brussels Airlines thanks to our flight offer to Palermo, Catania, Lamezia Terme, Venice, Naples, Florence, Lisbon, Malaga, Barcelona, Tel Aviv, Marrakech, Agadir, Nice, Marseille, and now also Alicante.”
The flights will depart every Wednesday and Saturday, with an early afternoon departure from Brussels Airport and a late afternoon departure from Alicante airport. This schedule allows good connectivity with other European destinations in the Brussels Airlines network.
