Brussels Airlines has announced it will re-launch routes from Bristol and Hanover that were previously operated by wet lease partner Flybmi.
Starting in September, the airline will operate five weekly flights between Brussels and Bristol and Hanover. Then from 27 October it will increase the frequency to 12 services from Bristol and six from Hanover.
Both routes were originally operated by Flybmi under a wet lease agreement, but the carrier went into administration in February this year.
Following its collapse, multiple airlines ceased operations from Bristol airport and Brussels Airlines says the re-launch of flights is in response to demand for the services.
From 1 September until 26 October, the service will depart Brussels at 1505 and land in Bristol at 1515 local time, with the return flight leaving at 1550 and landing at 1805 local time. Then from 27 October, there will be up two flights a day, taking off from Brussels at 1655 and 2105, and from Bristol at 1745 and 0605.
The carrier says the Hanover, Germany to Brussels service is popular for both domestic and international business travellers. Flights will depart Brussels at 0950 until 26 October, landing in Hanover at 1100, with the return service leaving at 1135 and arriving at 1245. For the winter season, there will be up to two flights a day, taking off from Brussels at 0930 and 1210, and from Hanover at 1125 and 1405.
All flights will be operated by CityJet on behalf of Brussels Airlines on board a CRJ900 aircraft.
