In spring, Mumbai joins the network as well as new European summer destinations.
This winter season, which starts on 30 October 2016, Brussels Airlines continues its strategy to serve not only the European capitals, but also the most important regions in Europe.
Compared to last winter season, Brussels Airlines offers 10% more seats and plans 5% more flights.
Five European cities, that were already served in summer, will be continued in the winter season: Nuremberg, Belfast, Nantes, Porto and Naples
To some fast growing destinations, Brussels Airlines increases its capacity during the winter period: Lisbon is served ten instead of seven times a week and the schedule is even better adjusted for weekend trips.
Malaga also grows from seven to ten flights a week and Tenerife and Marrakesh each get an extra frequency. Edinburgh and Billund are served more often as well.
Capacity will be significantly increased (+45%) on the Warsaw, Oslo and Toulouse routes. As from the winter season, these destinations will be operated with bigger Airbus A319 instead of AVRO RJ aircraft.
Next spring Brussels Airlines launches 3 new summer destinations. With a weekly flight to Funchal, Brussels Airlines makes it possible to fly to Madeira the entire summer. In addition, the offer to the Greek islands is expanded with a weekly flight to Rhodes.
Comiso is the gateway to the south of Sicily and is the third airport Brussels Airlines will serve on the Italian island, next to Palermo and Catania.
The Belgian traveler opted for Italy more than ever before this summer. In its bookings for Italy, tour operator Thomas Cook registered an increase of 7% compared to 2015, and this trend will continue in the coming years.
That’s why Thomas Cook and Brussels Airlines expand their offer to Italian destinations and offers Belgian holidaymakers the opportunity to discover Comiso. ■
