Brussels Airlines has unveiled its programme for this winter, with 61 business and leisure destinations.
The crisis must have seemed very long to the Brussels Airlines teams, who were particularly weakened for many months by this period of turbulence. Nailed to the tarmac for months, the company’s aircraft are gradually returning to service, gradually expanding the network. The winter schedule unveiled on 30 September confirms a renewed ambition, with 61 business or leisure destinations. ” With a slight growth in business travel week after week and a strong demand for holiday travel to winter sun destinations, Brussels Airlines expects the winter to be busier than last year
,” say company officials.
The European network will see Brussels Airlines resume operations to Kiev from December 16. The airline will also extend its service to Yerevan beyond the summer. Other business destinations in Europe this winter include Barcelona, Basel, Berlin, Budapest, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, Geneva, Gothenburg, Hamburg, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Manchester, Milan (Linate and Malpensa), Oslo, Porto, Prague, Rome
, Stockholm and Vienna. In France, Brussels Airlines will serve Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Nice and Toulouse.
On the African network, Marrakech will join the other business destinations already served by Brussels Airlines: Abidjan, Accra, Cotonou, Dakar, Freetown, Lomé, Monrovia, Douala, Kinshasa, Luanda, Yaoundé, Bujumbura, Entebbe and Kigali. Business travellers should also benefit from a more consistent transatlantic offer. Brussels Airlines intends to take advantage of the announced reopening in the United States: ” Since the announcement of the American government to lift the current travel ban in November for fully vaccinated passengers, Brussels Airlines has noted a significant increase in bookings for its flights to New York (JFK )”, says the management of the company.
The company already plans to operate four flights a week, but does not rule out the possibility of increasing the number of flights during the winter, depending on the evolution of demand.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
