oh man, that's great !
Sevilla is really a very nice city trip destination. I just hope the price will be affordable for tourists.
When can we start to book ?

Not really a new destination but reopening of a route abandoned in 2007.

The schedule to Vilnius looks like a schedule to a leisure destination and completely misses business travelers need to go to Brussels in the morning and return to Vilnius in the evening. So the travelers with most spending power will still have to chose indirect flights. The schedule with a night stop in Vilnius would suit their needs a lot better. And it would bring better results when competing for transfer passengers because Vilnius lacks early morning connectivity at the moment. The announced schedule will be in direct competition with Lufthansa, Austrian flights among other who have flights at about the same time but don't have any in the morning.

But good news nevertheless.

No sign of those two destinations on Brussels Airport site, so not baakable via their site.

On Amadeus however, you can find three, WED/FRI/SUN, direct flights operated by Brussels Airlines. They will depart at BRU at 10AM and return to BRU at 14H

In fact, flights to Sevilla will start on the 4th of April and not in July.

A detail strikes me. It is said about Sevilla that they will offer 3 weekly flights (on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday) on Avro and 150-seater . Why not directly give the a/c type ? Not decided yet ?

Yes, they stopped the route in 2007 and it is now reinstated because of high demands (according to SN press release).
