Winter timetable 2011-2012 : increased flight frequencues to Moscow

During the upcoming winter season, Brussels Airlines will increase its flight frequency between Brussels Airport and Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. From the end of October onwards Brussels Airlines will connect the Russian Capital ten times a week with Brussels. Other highlights of the winter timetable are the new destinations Bamako, Agadir and Marrakech who appear for the first time in Brussels Airlines winter schedule.

 

 

Till the month of June Brussels Airlines was operating seven weekly flights to Moscow Domodedovo. Since then an eighth weekly frequency has been added. Starting this winter season, two more weekly frequencies will be offered. In total, Brussels Airlines will then offer 10 weekly flights between the European capital airport and Domodedovo. The flight increase has been made possible thanks to an expansion of the bilateral aviation agreement between Belgium and Russia. Also the growing market demand justifies the frequency increase.
 
The additional frequencies are scheduled on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday with a late evening departure from Brussels Airport and an early morning return from Moscow on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. All these flights connect smoothly at Brussels Airport with European and African services of Brussels Airlines.
 
The new winter timetable also contains new African destinations. Bamako (Mali), a destination that Brussels Airlines is connecting twice weekly since September, pops up for the very first time in the winter schedule. Also Agadir and Marrakech are newcomers in the winter timetable.
 
During the upcoming winter season, Brussels Airlines will operate larger aircraft with additional seat capacity on several routes. Flights to Hamburg, Berlin, Geneva, Copenhagen, Vienna, London Heathrow and Tel Aviv are upgraded thanks to the fleet replacement programme whereby some Boeing 737 and AVRO RJ aircraft are replaced by larger Airbus A 319/320aircraft equipped with new ergonomic seats that offer more leg space.
 
On several routes like for example Athens and Lisbon, Brussels Airlines adjusts the timing of its flights resulting in improved connection possibilities with other flights.
 
Due to lower market demand on typical summer destinations, some destinations are suspended this winter. Flights to Seville are operated till the 13th of November, Naples and Catania till the 6th of November. On some other routes frequencies have changed in order to adapt seat capacity to the lower market demand during the winter or the weekend days.
 
On a weekly basis, Brussels Airlines operates this winter 712 return flights.
