Brussels Airlines North America growth

Lufthansa Group and Star Alliance member Brussels Airlines is boosting its North America presence from the end of next month with seasonal flights to Montreal and an increase in frequency for its Washington Dulles service.

Belgium’s home carrier is launching a five-a-week summer operation from the end of March to the end of October to Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.

And with the remaining aircraft capacity in winter, the airline is increasing its offer to Washington Dulles, which has now become a year-round service as of last Thursday, after being a summer-only destination.

From 29 March, the frequency of the service will increase from a four-times-a-week to a daily operation using the Airbus A330-200 with 22 seats in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy and 212 in Economy Class.

Lufthansa Group vice-president of sales for the Americas Frank Naeve said: “North America continues to be one of our most important global regions and Brussels Airlines’ increased flight capacity clearly reflects the group’s strong commitment to the US market.

“We are pleased to offer our customers an enhanced connectivity between Europe’s capital city and the capital of the United States, which also increases travel options to and from our African and European destinations.”
