Is Brussels Airport not a typo? On their website I don't see BRU ...
Mauritius isn't in their booking system neither. Must be uploaded yet.

Hi,

High chances that Air Mauritius will be alive from september....
But as there are no direct flights to MRU from Belgium I only see more people from France flying on the cheap via BRU.
Love see trying this but more practical from CRL then no ?
BRU more for the Dutch and their Antillen ...

Nice flights but really can't guess how many belgians are in those Air Belgium flights with these destinations..

But a nice alternative for Eurowings/Austrian/Edelweiss which are served by LH from BRU with 1 stop.
Soon also in the TUI brochures after Cuba,DR ?

New types flown 2020 : A321neo,B781

There were also Air Mauritius flights to AMS but if I remember well, they dropped it.

So it is a good move to attract Duch and French people together with Belgians. Belgians has also property, hotels, there. Ex sabeniens

KLM and Air Mauritius did indeed fly from AMS (KL in the Winter, Air Mauritius in the Summer) but cancelled the flighhts as of W19/20. It wasn't a big success and lasted 2 years.

As Air Belgium seems focusing on popular destination for french people, I wonder if Air Belgium could lease a mini subfleef of 4-5 embraer 190 to fly to main french city in France to feed the flight. Or an agreement with Ryanair (Toulouse, Marseille, Nantes, Bordeaux), or TUI (Nice)

BRU was chosen because of the track lenght, source Terzakis/l'echo
So most likely temporary, CRL track should be ready H2 2021
There is a high chance that french people will be the majority, CRL isnt badly located

Now Air Belgium has also announced to offer code share flights from Guadeloupe and Martinique to Sint-Maarten. These flights will be operated by Air Caraïbes that flies from the two Air Belgium destinations to Sint-Maarten Grand Case l'Espérance Airport. No details are offered yet and bookings are also not yet open.

Maybe the flight to MRU could be made triangular as BRU-MRU-RUN-BRU.
Flights from Paris to Réunion are usually not cheap and MRU-RUN is only a 30-min hop....
