Brussels Airlines starts summer season with 26 new destinations

Brussels Airlines launches the biggest network expansion in the company’s history. Thanks to the cooperation with tour operators Neckermann, Thomas Cook and Pegase, the company doesn’t only increase its flight frequencies to different leisure destinations, but also expands its network with 26 new leisure destinations.

Brussels Airlines launches 26 new destinations this summer. It is the biggest network expansion in the history of the company. Besides an increase in flight frequencies to different holiday regions, the airline also welcomes new leisure destinations in Bulgaria, Cabo Verde, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, Macedonia, Greece, Montenegro, Morocco, Portugal and Spain to its summer schedule, which runs from the 25th of March until  the 27th of October.  The significant growth of the airline’s destination offer is mainly due to the integration of the Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium activities and two of their Airbus A320 aircraft and herewith the closer cooperation with tour operators Neckermann, Thomas Cook and Pegase, leading to almost 1,700 weekly flights to short-and medium-haul destinations (+9.67% seats compared to 2017) and over 200 weekly flights on the long-haul this summer (+1.53% seats compared to 2017).

Short- and medium-haul destinations

Within Europe, the company welcomes several new leisure destinations this summer. Brussels Airlines sets sail for Burgas and Varna (Bulgaria), Cyprus, Sharm-el-Sheikh, Hurghada and Marsa Alam (Egypt), several Greek destinations and Islands, Ohrid (Macedonia) and Tivat (Montenegro).

The flight offer to holiday regions in Spain, Morocco, Greece and Croatia also grows significantly thanks to the addition of, among others, Lanzarote, Agadir, Santorini, Zadar and Split. Besides new destinations there will also be an increase in flight frequencies to French cities Ajaccio, Bastia, Bordeaux and Nice, as well as to  Athens, Tel Aviv, Florence and Malaga.
