Brussels, 4 September 2019 – As from the end of March 2020, Brussels Airlines, Belgium’s home carrier will launch seasonal flights to Montreal, i.e. in the summer season (end March to end October), the airline will offer 5 flights per week between Brussels Airport and Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. With the remaining aircraft capacity in winter, Brussels Airlines will also increase its offer to Washington, which will become a year round service as of 20 February, whereas today this is a summer destination only.
Montreal being the most important market in Canada out of Belgium and having a high demand for connections to and from Sub-Saharan Africa via Brussels, Brussels Airlines has decided to launch flights to Montreal, the second most populous municipality in Canada.
“Montreal is a real added value for the Brussels Airlines network. It is a strong market out of Belgium, with over 75,000 potential travelers a year. Montreal is very relevant both for business and leisure travelers, and the appealing destination can easily be stimulated for both individual and group travel. We are looking forward to adding Montreal to our portfolio.”
Frederic Dechamps, Senior Director Sales Belgium – Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa Group
Flights leave out of Brussels Airport in the morning and return to Brussels early in the morning, allowing for convenient connections to and from many European destinations and Brussels Airlines’ 17 African destinations.
