The following statement was made by Brussels Airlines:
Brussels Airlines will offer 85 destinations in the coming summer season, beginning March 27, 2022, with a focus on leisure.
Arecife (Lanzarote), Chania (Crete), Hurghada (Egypt), Mytilene (Lesbos), Samos, Marrakesh (Morocco), Rabat (Morocco), and Munich are new additions to the airline’s summer repertoire compared to last year.
Brussels Airlines anticipates a highly busy summer season following a winter that was still strongly touched by the global pandemic.
“The booking figures clearly show a great willingness to travel. Compared to the summer of 2021, we also see that passengers start to book longer in advance again, especially for the school holiday periods. Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Greek Islands are expected to be the most popular destinations this summer season.
That’s why we are happy to add the islands Lesbos and Samos in Greece to our network, but also Lanzarote and Crete will be an added value in our vacation portfolio.”
The Belgian company wants to give its consumers an optimistic view of the approaching summer by offering a wide choice of popular vacation destinations.
Aside from year-round destinations such as Alicante, Madrid, Lisbon, Milano, Rome, and others, the airline is relaunching a series of summer vacation locations:
Athens and the Greek islands of Crete (Heraklion and Chania), Cos, Rhodes, Corfu, Zakynthos, Lesbos, and Samos will be connected to Brussels once more.
The airline will return to Italy to land at Bari, Catania, Florence, Napoli, Olbia, and Palermo. Ibiza and Palma de Mallorca will be added to the network, while services to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Lanzarote will be maintained beginning in the winter season.
Brussels Airlines will resume service to Croatian cities Dubrovnik and Split, as well as Russian cities Moscow and Saint-Petersburg. Hurghada, Egypt, will be maintained after the winter, and Marrakesh, Morocco, will be added to the summer itinerary. Tangier, Rabat, and Nador, all in Morocco, will be connected to Brussels during the peak season.
19 long haul destinations with the restart of Washington
Brussels Airlines will reopen Conakry (Guinea) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) in Africa and resume flights to Washington, D.C. during the summer season on the intercontinental network. The Belgian airline serves 19 long-haul destinations in total, including 17 in Sub-Saharan Africa and two in the United States (New York and Washington).
New route Brussels – Munich
Brussels Airlines will conduct flights between Brussels and Munich for the first time. The Belgian airline will fly two times each day, while Lufthansa will continue to fly five times per day.
On March 27, 2022, the first Brussels Airlines flight to Munich will take off.
