Belfast adds Brussels Airlines

Belgium’s flag carrier, Brussels Airlines, is to operate a service from George Best Belfast City Airport to Brussels Airport from 27 March next year.

The company will use a 97-seat Avro RJ100 jet on the route, which will operate five times a week year-round, providing passengers with point-to-point access to Belgium or onwards to other European or long-haul destinations via the Brussels hub.

The airline, Belgium’s largest and a member of the Lufthansa Group and Star Alliance, operates to more than 75 destinations in Europe, North America and Africa. Its IATA code, SN, was inherited from its predecessors, Sabena and SN Brussels Airlines.

The announcement of the new service was welcomed by Brian Ambrose, Chief Executive, Belfast City Airport.  He said: “This has been a successful year for the airport with passengers numbers expected to be up 10% on last year. 

“We have had our sights set on increasing connectivity with key European destinations and I am delighted we have been able to deliver on these promises, commencing both an Amsterdam and Brussels service.”  www.brusselsairlines.com   www.belfastcityairport.com
