There are four price options available from Brussels-Charleroi, ranging from light to economy plus services, with an entry-level price of €166 including all taxes for a return flight. In-flight catering is available for all passengers, as well as a well-thought-out baggage allowance to suit travellers’ needs.
The national airline Air Algérie was founded in 1962 and is the eighth airline to be working at Brussels South Charleroi Airport. It is also the third national airline to put its trust in the services of Brussels-Charleroi. The airline is experiencing considerable growth at the moment in terms of sales, carrying more than 6.1 million passengers a year to a network of more than 70 destinations. Air Algérie has a fleet of 59 aircraft, operating on four continents.
Jean-Jacques CLOQUET, Chief Executive Officer of Brussels South Charleroi Airport, explains: “We are delighted to be able to include Air Algérie as one of our airlines. It means we can grow our options for Algeria, with the addition of a second operator offering flights to the capital, Algiers. We are thrilled with this new partnership and are keen to continue to grow, working closely with the airline. After an absence of over twenty years, we are very happy to welcome Air Algérie back to our tarmac. The airline worked at Brussels-Charleroi in the 1990s and contributed to the airport’s success. The Algerian airline’s return is worth mentioning and recognising. We would like to wish them every success with this new line between Brussels-Charleroi and Algiers.”
