Brussels Airlines is continuing its slow and measured growth, with plans to grow its fleet by two Airbus A330s – and fill new routes for those Airbus aircraft.
First up in new routes is Brussels Airlines who will introduce a direct five times a week service between Brussels and Toronto on the 27th March 2016 – using one of the two new aircraft.
Operation plans looks like this
SN551 DEPART BRU 10:30 ARRIVE YYZ 13:20 SN552 DEPART YYZ 17:55 ARRIVE BRU 07:15+1 Commences 27th March 2016 Fights operate Tuedays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Airbus A330-300 operates Thursdays and Sundays Airbus A330-200 operates Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays
Ticketing opens next week for those who need to go to Toronto since Jet Airways are pulling out.
Brussels Airlines are also looking at its very successful African network, boosting flights to Kigali (Rwanda) and Entebbe (Uganda).
New frequencies are:
- Kigali (Rwanda) goes to 6 times a week
- Entebbe (Uganda) goes to 4 times a week
With the additional A330 coming along in 12 to 15 months, Brussels Airlines are sniffing around new routes to Africa – currently Lagos and Libreville.
Brussels Airlines has been very careful with its growth – much less of a basket-case it used to be (when came together from Virgin Express and SN Brussels Airlines), and has been concentrating on slow and gradual growth.
And for the airline with its gradual introduction of routes that are yielding the passengers – it seems to be working.
