Brussels Airlines expands presence in Eastern Europe
May 31, 2018: In a latest move, Brussels Airlines will now start services to two new destinations in Eastern Europe - Ukrainian capital Kiev and the historical Wroclaw in Poland.
The first flight to Kiev will take off on October 19 and will be offered 4 times per week. Due to the new VISA free regime for Ukrainian citizens travelling to Schengen countries, Kiev has recorded a significant market growth. The capital of Ukraine is an important industrial, scientific, educational, and cultural center of Eastern Europe. It is home to many high-tech industries and higher education institutions. But next to being a business destination, Kiev also attracts many tourists, with its world-famous historical landmarks. Kiev is enriched by urban art, vintage cafes, and an exciting nightlife. It has become hip and stylish, but has still kept older Soviet quirks from decades past.
As for Wroclaw, the airline will offer a 3-weekly service starting from October 29. With Wroclaw, Brussels Airlines strengthens its position in the Polish market, where it was already offering flights to and from Warsaw and Krakow. It is the largest city in western Poland and the historical capital of Silesia and Lower Silesia, situated at the foot of the Sudetes, by the Oder River. In 2016, the city with its thriving multicultural center, received the title of ‘Cultural capital of Europe’.
Brussels Airlines continues to expand its network in the winter of 2018. Thanks to the partnership with Thomas Cook Belgium, Brussels Airlines already announced 26 new holiday destinations for its summer timetable.
