This summer season Brussels Airlines offers 709.000 additional seats

This summer season Brussels Airlines adds 3 new destinations and 709.000 additional seats to its network. Apart from the new scheduled services to Marrakech, Agadir and Lamezia Terme, Brussels Airlines increases frequencies and /or seat capacity to numerous European destinations. This summer, Brussels Airlines will perform 806 European return flights per week, which is an increase of 28 flights versus last year and of 63 compared to the winter season.

Brand-new in the summer 2011 offer, that starts end of March, are Marrakech, Agadir and Lamezia Terme. With Marrakech and Agadir, Brussels Airlines introduces two Moroccan holiday destinations in its network. Where Agadir is Morocco’s most popular beach destination with guaranteed sunshine all year long, Marrakech is considered the most attractive citytrip destination. Lamezia Terme is Brussels Airlines’ eleventh destination in Italy. Lamezia is situated in the region of Calabria in Italy’s deep south and is the perfect hub to discover this beautiful and idyllic coastal region.

Frequency increases

Brussels Airlines increases its frequencies to numerous destinations. For example, as from the start of the summer season, there will be a daily flight between Brussels and the Greek capital Athens. Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, will be better connected thanks to an additional night stop. The flight offer to Bilbao will be substantially increased through a third daily flight. During the holiday months more flights will be offered to the holiday destinations Malaga (Costa del Sol), Palma (Mallorca, Balearic Islands) and Faro (Algarve). The weekend offer to cities like Florence, Lyon and Madrid will be expanded and the timetable to Marseille and Venice is improved to offer even more flexibility to the customers.

During the summer season regional AVRO jets will be replaced by larger Airbus A 319 / A 320 on a number of routes, for example Tel Aviv, Prague, Geneva, Berlin, Gothenburg, Vienna, Milan Malpensa, Paris CDG, Malaga and Copenhagen. The increase of the seat capacity (+10 pct compared to 2010) and flight frequencies is an important investment of Brussels Airlines in its homebase in Brussels Airport. Thanks to this investment the Brussels Airport hub benefits from numerous additional connection possibilities, which will boost the number of transfer passengers.

Charter programme

Besides the scheduled services Brussels Airlines also offers many charter flights from Belgium, Switzerland, France and Denmark to Tunisia, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, Corsica, Sardinia, Mallorca, Menorca , Ibiza, Spain and Italy. These charter flights are operated on behalf of Belgian and foreign tour operators, like newcomer Club Med and Thomas Cook, who commercialize the entire seat capacity.

The fleet is rejuvenated by the replacement of 5 AVRO RJ regional Jets by 4 larger Airbus A 319 and 2 Airbus A 320 aircraft. On the routes to Bristol and Newcastle Brussels Airlines leases aircraft capacity from partner British Midland International – BMI Regional (Embraer ER4 Jets) whilst flights to Hanover are operated by partner Tyrolean (Dash DH4).
