Major North German city, Bremen, is the latest destination for both Brussels Airlines and Brussels Airport.
The five-times-weekly operation will commence from September 14, 2015, and will be good news for many EU officials and businessmen who commute between Bremen and the European capital via other European airports.
Brussels Airlines’ direct flight will take an hour and ten minutes, departing Bremen at 19:00pm, and arriving into Brussels at 20:10pm. The return flight will depart Brussels at 21:00pm, arriving into Bremen at 22:10 Monday to Friday.
Bremen and nearby Bremerhaven are known for their high technology. Airbus has a main production centre in Bremen while several Mercedes-Benz models are produced there, and the European space industry is well represented in the region too.
“We are very happy to add a region and a city to our network that maintains important trade relations with Belgium”, says Brussels Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Lars Redeligx. “Bremen is a nice addition to the rapidly growing European network of Brussels Airlines and Brussels Airport. With this route we also target transfer passengers who want to connect smoothly to other Brussels Airlines destinations”.
The flight is scheduled to fit a number of connections including Bristol, Toulouse and Madrid in order to allow Airbus Industries employees to travel comfortably between the different production sites of the aircraft manufacturer within the EU.
Bremen is Brussels Airlines’ third destination in North Germany after Hamburg and Hannover, and the airline also flies to Berlin five-times-daily.
Jürgen Bula, CEO of Bremen Airport: “Especially businessmen from the Lower Saxony and Bremen region will profit from this new direct connection between Bremen and Brussels, but this flight is also perfect for a city trip”
Cooperation with both Lufthansa and Germanwings means passengers can also fly several times a day to Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart.
