As Vueling closes Brussels base and cancels Porto and Lisbon flights, Ryanair launches seat sale


Ryanair today (5 Oct) launched a seat sale on its flights from Brussels to Lisbon and Porto, following Vueling’s decision to close its Brussels base and cancel its Brussels flights to Lisbon and Porto.

Belgian consumers and visitors can fly with Ryanair from Brussels to Lisbon (2 x daily) and Porto (daily), on the lowest fares from just €19.99, and can look forward to further improvements, as Ryanair continues its “Always Getting Better” programme, which includes more new routes, new digital features, new cabin interiors and even more low fares.

These seat sale fares are on sale on the website now, for travel in November and December, but must be booked by midnight Monday (10 Oct).

Ryanair’s Sales and Marketing Manager for Belgium, Yann Delomez, said:

We’ve launched a seat sale on our flights from Brussels to Lisbon and Porto, with seats starting from just €19.99 for travel in November and December. These fares are on sale until midnight Monday (10 Oct), only on the website.


The strategy of Ryanair thus was successful. As soon as Vueling had decided to open a base in Brussels with 10 destinations, Ryanair stepped in, opened its own base in Brussels with flights to exactly the same destinations, but at a lower price. An d Vueling was forced to retreat two years later…

  1. With Ryanair at Brussels airport our future is not looking good. Company after company dicides to cancel their nightstops at Brussels or even Move completly to neighbourn airports. What Will be left in a short Time? Ryanair and Brussels Airlines? Or should i say,german Wings,because Yes,even our Belgian flagcarrier is sold now. Proud to be Belgian? I dont think so . Poor Belgium and poor Brussels airport,you have decided to sell your Soul for money. But the consequences Will explode in your face by Time.
    Someone from the “Brussels airport company Family” not really the Family i had in Mind.:-(
