During the crisis, our network didn’t get below 30 destinations and we are able to carry dozens of Belgian citizens around the world via Brussels, Amsterdam and Paris.
We have recently begun to rebuild our world network with more than 270 weekly flights to more than 45 destinations. By the end of the summer seasons, we expect to link more than the half of our initial destinations.”
