More flights will be offered at Brussels Airport as new low cost airlines add the airport into their network. The Italian low-fare company MyAir has launched direct flights from Brussels Airport. MyAir offers a direct service to the South-Italian city of Bari. The flights are operated by a Bombardier CRJ900, seating 90 passengers. MyAir also started a thrice weekly service to Bucharest, operated by an Airbus 320. As from 7 January the frequency of this service will be increased to four flights a week. With the flexible MyFlex product and the bargain fares in the MyLow class, MyAir aims at both business passengers and holidaymakers.
The Romanian low-fare carrier Blue Air, which until recently operated from Charleroi, has also started a service between Brussels Airport and Bucharest. The five-weekly service is operated by Boeing 737.
The Polish national carrier LOT Polish Airlines, which offers a 19-weekly service between Brussels Airport and the Polish capital Warsaw, now also operates six flights a week (Monday to Saturday) from Brussels to Wroclaw. Wroclaw is the largest city in western Poland, and is very important in the trade and tourism sectors.
These initiatives further increase the fast-growing low-fare offer from Brussels Airport. With 86 destinations and about 1,500 low-fare flights a week, the low-fare network served by Brussels Airport is three times larger than the offer of all other Belgian airports combined.
Brussels Airport is examining the possibility of opening a dedicated low-cost pier in the near future
