Bmi and Brussels Airlines extend Heathrow Airport codeshare agreement
Fri, 18 Sep, 2009
Brussels Airlines flights to London Heathrow Airport will be operated in codeshare with bmi, it has been announced.
This will allow passengers flying between the British and Belgian capitals to choose from nine daily flights, seven arriving at London Heathrow and two at London Gatwick.
It is thought that the services will prove popular with business travellers, city trippers and those with onward connections beyond Brussels.
The airlines began co-operating from the start of this summer on routes from Leeds Bradford, Edinburgh, East Midlands, Bristol, Birmingham, London Gatwick, Manchester and Newcastle.
Thanks to the agreement, Brussels Airlines has been able to add nine UK airports to its portfolio, which translates as 30 daily services between Brussels Airport and Britain.
Flights are spread throughout the day, from the early morning to late in the evening. The convenient schedule also allows for smooth onward connections to Brussels Airlines' African flights.
From October 25th, Brussels Airlines will introduce 12 weekly flights between the Belgian capital and Linate, Milan's city airport.
