The announcement comes after the airline added six new European destinations for its summer 2015 schedule including Dubrovnik, Calvi, Lourdes, Olbia, Billund and St. Petersburg.
The Bordeaux route will commence at the end of March 2015, operating four-times weekly, whereas the Zagreb route will begin operation on September 20, 2015, operating six-times weekly.
Bordeaux will become the Star Alliance member’s twelfth French destination, offering Brussels Airlines customers easy access to the Unesco World Heritage city. The route will be operated using the airline’s Airbus A319 aircraft, and will be timed conveniently for both business and leisure travellers with a flight time of 1h 35 minutes.
The Zagreb route will become the airline’s 18th European capital connecting to Brussels, and the third capital in Easter Europe after Warsaw and Riga.
The flights will operate during the afternoon every day of the week apart from Saturday. The flight will depart Brussels at 14:05pm, arriving into Zagreb at 16:10pm, with the return flight departing Zagreb at 16:40pm, arriving into Brussels at 18:45pm.
The city is known for its cultural wealth, with more than 20 theatres, three concert halls and 60 museums and art galleries. The city is also home to one of Europe’s oldest universities – the University of Zagreb which was founded in the 17th century.
