Starting in May 2016, Brussel Airlines will operate two weekly flights to Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city.
On Thursdays and Sundays the airline will set sail for Makedonia Airport, which is also the gateway to the famous tourist region of Chalkidiki.
The new Brussels Airlines service is also aimed at the important Greek diaspora in Belgium and southern Netherlands. Many Greeks who live in Belgium have their roots in Northern Greece and return to their birthplace each summer.
Frédéric Dechamps, Vice President Sales Benelux Europe et Etats-Unis de Brussels Airlines said:
“We invest heavily in our Greece offer next summer because we strongly believe in the growing tourism potential of the country for next year. With flights to Thessaloniki, Crete and Athens we fly to all the important regions of the country and we offer interesting travel options for those who travel to the mainland or the islands.”
