NEW FARE STRUCTURE LAUNCHED BY BRUSSELS AIRLINES FOR FLIGHTS TO NORTH AMERICA
(Posted 20th June 2018)
As from today will Brussels Airlines offer its guests a so-called Economy Light Fare option on North American routes. The new offer is the cheapest choice for price-conscious passengers who are travelling with hand luggage only and do not require ticket flexibility.
Dirk Janzen, VP Pricing & Revenue Management, Distribution and Commercial Steering:
"The new Economy Light Fare is a further development of our efforts to offer individualized solutions to cater to the needs of our different types of guests. It is a logical step after having introduced a similar hand luggage-only fare on our European routes in 2014. From now on, guests on our North American destinations will be able to only pay for the product they actually use."
Economy Light passengers have the option of individually booking a piece of luggage or reserving a particular seat against a fee, and to personalize their experience by adding services that best meet their needs. Meals and drinks continue to be free of charge for all passengers on board. The Economy Light fares start at €383 for a return flight to New York JFK and can be booked as of today on brusselsairlines.com or via travel agencies.
Brussels Airlines is introducing the new Economy Light fare on its North American destinations (New York, Washington D.C. and Toronto) together with Austrian, Lufthansa and Swiss as well as with its A++ joint venture partners United and Air Canada.
In Eastern Africa does Brussels Airlines connect the European capital city with Entebbe, presently six times a week via Bujumbura / Burundi – once a week – and Kigali / Rwanda – five times a week.
Information is awaited if Brussels Airlines will extend such offers to other long haul destinations.
