Brussels Airlines has redesigned its network to meet travel restrictions evolving and vaccination programs underway, especially for holiday destinations. Next to the reopening of its leisure destinations, Brussels Airlines also launches flights to Bordeaux in France and Tangier, Nador and Al Hoceima in Morocco. With the opening of these new destinations, the airline emphasizes its important position on the leisure and VFR (Visit Friends and Relatives) market.

Today the Belgian company gives its leisure customers a positive outlook on the summer, together with partners and tour operators. Over the coming months, the airline expects an increase in demand for air travel during the summer holidays. Over the past six months, the airline operated a network that focused on essential travel, mainly with flights to and from Africa.  Most of travellers flew for business reason as the figure decreased from the past.

Sanitary measure remain key

Welcoming more passengers means that it is important to emphasize that the airline continues to apply the same Corona measures as before. These include a mandatory face mask during the entire flight (as of arrival at the airport) for every passenger as of six years old, row by row boarding and de-boarding to avoid queues in the aircraft, extra disinfection of the aircraft and of course proper hand hygiene. All the airline’s aircraft are equipped with HEPA filters that continuously supply clean air on board. See the complete overview or measures here
