flibco.com, a company specialising in transporting people to airports, today launches a new way to get to Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA). The goal of Door2Gate, a shared mobility solution, is to take travellers from their home to the airport in a more personal way. In a comfortable vehicle, along with other users, passengers will be taken from their front door to BSCA. Available for residents of the Brussels-Capital region, its outskirts and Walloon Brabant as far as Hainaut, this service is charged on a sliding scale depending on the number of travellers.
Door2Gate, a new alternative for journeys to Brussels South Charleroi Airport, is aimed at families, business travellers and other individuals travelling for leisure or tourism. Thanks to this new service, the airport now offers another means of transport, making it even more accessible.
Thanks to its algorithm for optimising journeys, flibco.com’s new software can guarantee the punctuality of the shuttle buses by calculating the best possible route. The goal is to transport as many passengers as possible by optimising navigation data (the cost of the journey is then divided by the number of people travelling).
The catchment area for the first phase of the launch encompasses the whole Brussels-Capital region, its outskirts and a large proportion of Walloon Brabant, as far as Hainaut (from La Hulpe to Pont-à-Celles via Wavre and Ottignies-Louvain-La-Neuve). Depending on how successful this is, the geographical coverage offered by Door2Gate will gradually be extended.
Paul DE MUYNCK, Director of flibco Belgium explains: “Door2Gate is a huge step for flibco.com. Lots of passengers are familiar with our coaches that travel along Belgium’s motorways. We will now be picking our customers up from their home or hotel, and taking them to the airport economically and ecologically.”
Philippe VERDONCK, Chief Executive Officer of Brussels South Charleroi Airport, announces: “A new way of getting to the airport is now possible thanks to the services offered by flibco.com. It is important to have a fairly wide range of options so that passengers can choose how they get to BSCA.”
