In a first phase they will fly with one B747 to West-Africa before going on to Johannesburg or Nairobi.

In a second phase, with the second B747, they will fly to South-America, more specific to Sao Paolo.

We can expect some new long haul destinations from Brussels Airlines as they said that as from the winter season their 4th A330-300 will be used on some new routes to N-America or Africa.

Vueling is going to fly from December on between Brussels and Sevilla. This in competition with Brussels Airlines.

I would say, finally they add an other destination ex-BRU.

TAP's acquisition of Portugalia was given the green light by the EU Commission. As a result, TAP announced that it intends to start flying Porto-Brussels as from next winter. Not sure whether we'll see a Portugalia livery rather than a Tap one ...

None. The plane will be used to increase the number of flights to Africa.

And after Sevilla they are also open two more routes. To Madrid and Malaga.

That means that Vueling is going to fly to five destinations ex-BRU before the end of this year.

Brussels Airport announced recently, some weeks ago, that they want to invest in new infrastructure for the new low-cost carriers.
