As of 17 February 2020, Brussels Airlines will start operating flights to Valencia in Spain.
Valencia is a key destination that was still missing in Brussels Airlines’ vast European portfolio and targets next to holidaymakers also corporate travelers.
The aviation winter season, which starts on 27 October, also brings changes to some existing destinations on the European network map, optimizing the schedule to the market.
Valencia is the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona and one of the biggest point-to-point markets out of Brussels currently unserved by Brussels Airlines. As of February next year, Brussels Airlines will start a four weekly service to the port city on Spain’s southeastern coast, flying on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. It is the 16th city Brussels Airlines serves in Spain, which remains a very popular holiday destination for Belgians.
Valencia is mostly known for its heritage of ancient monuments, views and cultural attractions, making it one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations. With Brussels Airlines opening the Valencia route, all airlines of the Lufthansa Group are now represented in the Spanish city.
Brussels Airlines will operate A319 and A320 aircraft on the Valencia route.
On top of this new destination, Brussels Airlines also optimizes its existing network in order to adapt its offer to market demand. This results in more frequencies to Alicante (from 3 to 4 weekly flights), Billund (from 14 to 18 weekly flights), Faro (from 1 to 2 weekly flights) and Hurghada (from 2 to 3 weekly flights).
