Brussels Airport is actively promoting itself in the Netherlands as an alternative to Schiphol. The arrival of a Dutch airline will undoubtedly be welcomed by BRU, as it may help in attracting Dutch passengers.

Not a single new destination. Just more cheap capacity on existing routes. And thus continues the race to the bottom.

- Verona was served by Ryanair in the past. The fact that they abandoned should tell something!
- Tel Aviv already served by El Al, SN, TUI and Ryanair (the latter from CRL)

But anyway it's good news to have more flights and more competition in general!?
I fly regularly to Faro and I'm very happy about this announcement because from Brussels Airport the possibilities are very poor.
I don't use CRL because what you win in price you loose in transport expenses to reach there,plus you lose much time from Brussels City.

For Tell Aviv it's the same from Brussels Airport the price are often cheaper with Swiss via Zurich!

Also I'm sure that with the passenger's catching area of Brussels Airport there are much more possibilities.
Hasta la victoria siempre.

And Transavia reduced already the schedule for Verona from 3 weekly to 2 weekly, but no problem!

They rebook you automatically to the best the computer can find... see below...I really gonna do a lot of business there... in 40min...

Good old Brussels Airlines to VCE, here I come...

Cheers,

That is a crazy and ridiculous rebooking indeed. Can they just reschedule your booking to a flight that will be operated two days later? I hope you can cancel and get a full refund.

Unless you are a real avgeek and want to fly to Verona and back just for fun. But that should be your call, not theirs...

Best regards,

I was given the option to cancel but when you cancel, you have to cancel all flights... You can't cancel just the outbound. Anyway, I cancelled and am promised a full refund in two weeks...

No, I'm not an avgeek, I only fly when I need to...

Cheers,
