Although it is ending its service to Toronto in early 2020, Brussels Airlines, Belgium’s home carrier, will launch seasonal flights to Montreal as of April 1, 2020.
The airline will offer five flights per week during the summer period between Brussels Airport and Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. Brussels Airlines is also increasing its Washington service to year-round as of Feb. 20.
“Montreal is a real added value for the Brussels Airlines network. It is a strong market out of Belgium, with over 75,000 potential travellers a year. Montreal is very relevant both for business and leisure travellers, and the appealing destination can easily be stimulated for both individual and group travel. We are looking forward to adding Montreal to our portfolio,” said 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.
The new Brussels-Montreal route will be operated with Airbus A330-300 aircraft, which includes the airline’s newly introduced boutique hotel in the sky service in its new Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class.
Passengers can experience Belgian hospitality and a premium culinary experience. A menu crafted every year by a different Belgian Star Chef is available for the enjoyment of Business Class passengers. All guests also have the choice of eight Belgian beers as well as Belgian wines, coffee and premium Belgian chocolates.
Brussels Airlines’ new Premium Economy Class offers long haul passengers a quiet, relaxed and comfortable experience with plenty of legroom spacing up to 96 cm. Chairs are also equipped with bigger headrests and a generous 40-degree seat recline.
Brussels Airlines’ last flight to Toronto will take off on Jan. 7, 2020. Passengers already booked on flights after that date will be offered alternative travel solutions.
