Brussels Airlines will connect Bristol Airport with Brussels 12 times a week. The first flight from Bristol to Brussels will take off on September 1st and be operated by a CRJ900 aircraft.
The connection between Bristol Airport and Brussels Airport is not entirely new, as wetlease partner flybmi used to operate this route for Brussels Airlines until February this year. As the connection between both cities remains of strategic importance to the airline, Brussels Airlines now reconnects both airports with its wet lease operator CityJet. The first flight to Brussels takes off on September 1st. As from then, the airline operates the route six times a week until October 27th, when the airline increases its frequencies to 12 weekly flights.
Andreas Koester Senior Director Sales for the UK, Ireland and Iceland Lufthansa Group said:
“The new connection between Bristol and Brussels is an important expansion to the Lufthansa Group network in the UK, where we offer flights to the European mainland out of 12 different airports. With two flights daily out of Bristol, Brussels Airlines offers point-to-point passengers a flexible schedule and create a broad range of possibilities for passengers connecting to one of the many other destinations in our network.”
