With Palermo, Brussels Airlines opens second Sicilian destination
Starting 4 April, Brussels Airlines sets a course for Palermo (Sicily). Now, with Catania and Palermo, Brussels Airlines offers scheduled services to 2 destinations in Sicily, and 10 in Italy.
All flights to/from Palermo will be operated with Boeing 737 aircraft and passengers will have the choice between the extra flexible full service b.flex formula and the low fare b.light tickets.
The new flights will not only be of interest to the extensive Sicilian community living in Belgium, but they will also appeal to tourists who will be able to (re)discover this beautiful island. Tour Operator Thomas Cook, among others, offers a full programme of holidays in Sicily, flying with Brussels Airlines.
Palermo is the capital of the autonomous region Sicily and has a population approaching 700.000 inhabitants. Its rich history, architecture and culture alone are worth a visit; but the city is also a perfect base to visit the north-west side of the island, with highlights including Mount Etna, the coastal region of Cefalu, the town of Monreale, the Riviera resort Mondello, etc.
Travellers can combine an arrival in Palermo with a departure from Catania, Brussels Airlines' second destination in Sicily, with car rentals available on brusselsairlines.com. There are 5 flights to/from Catania every week.
Information and bookings are available via www.brusselsairlines.com, the call centre, or travel agents.
With the addition of this new service to Palermo, Brussels Airlines now offers a total of 10 destinations in Italy: Rome, Milan Malpensa and Linate, Venice, Florence, Bologna, Turin, Naples, Catania and… Palermo. Out of Belgium, no other airline has such an extensive offer to Italy which, combined with our high frequencies, give a fantastic range of travel combinations.
