Transavia: Four new air routes to Brussels in summer

Low-cost airline Transavia will launch four new seasonal routes in Brussels next summer to Ibiza and Alicante in Spain, Heraklion in Greece and Faro in Portugal.

In addition to its link between Brussels-Zaventem and Innsbruck airport which will be inaugurated tomorrow, the subsidiary of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines specializing in cheap flights has put back in its program some of the nine routes planned at the end of 2019, but abandoned in due to the Covid-19 pandemic. From June 30, 2022, Transavia will offer a flight every day except Tuesday between the Belgian capital and Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernandez, operated by Boeing 737-800 with 189 seats in competition with Brussels Airlines plus Ryanair from Charleroi. Ibiza airport will be served from Brussels on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from July 1, against the same two competitors plus TUI Fly Belgium.

From July 2, Transavia will also be offering two weekly rotations (Tuesday and Saturday) between Zaventem and Heraklion-Nikos Kazantzakis airport, in front of those of Brussels Airlines, Corendon, Ryanair, Sky Express and TUI Fly Belgium . Finally, Faro in Portugal will be served from June 30 with flights Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, the low cost facing Brussels Airlines, Corendon, Ryanair and TUI Fly Belgium.

To make this network possible, Transavia said in a statement that it will “base a plane” at Brussels-Zaventem next summer. The 2019 draft envisioned two, but without a proper basis.

“Our flights from Brussels Airport strengthen our position on the Dutch and Belgian markets,” said Marcel de Nooijer, Managing Director of Transavia. “Many of our current customers and business partners already come from Belgium and the south of the Netherlands. That’s why we see the departure from Brussels as an important step in continuing to meet the wishes of existing customers in Belgium and the Netherlands with a number of beautiful destinations ”.

“We are delighted to welcome Transavia to Brussels Airport, an airline which has also enjoyed increasing popularity for many years with Belgian travelers looking for a sunny destination”, added Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport . “In addition, the winter sports flight to Innsbruck offers our travelers a new destination in our ever-evolving network of cities in Europe.”
