- Brussels Airlines expanded its European network with three new airport pairs from its Brussels (BRU) base during the course of last week. Firstly on 29 March, the Star Alliance member added 11 weekly flights to Billund (BLL) using its 74-seat Q400s (operated by Flybe), while on the same day it introduced thrice-weekly departures on the 777-kilometre sector to Bordeaux (BOD), utilising its 133-seat A319s. Secondly, on 30 March, the airline started thrice-weekly flights to St Petersburg (LED), using its 133-seat A319s. While this route will face no direct competition, the service to Denmark is already flown by British Airways’ (SUN-AIR) four weekly flights and the link to France is operated by easyJet’s four weekly departures.
