Emirates to introduce second daily flight to Brussels

Posted 5 July 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates will introduce an additional daily flight to Brussels, complementing Emirates' existing schedule and providing a double-daily service to customers from 29 October 2017.

 

The new scheduled flight will be added to meet the growing demand for travel on the route – Emirates has carried over half a million passengers between Dubai and the Belgian capital since launching operations on 5 September 2014 - and continues to grow demand both inbound and outbound. 

As well as providing choice and convenience for both Belgian customers and inbound visitors, Emirates’ operations over recent years have made a positive impact on Belgium’s tourism, trade, investment and employment. Keen to build on its already significant economic contribution, Emirates is confident its analysis demonstrates that the high potential of the route more than justifies the addition of a second daily service between Dubai and Brussels, both to meet existing demand and to stimulate new growth. 

Inbound tourism is also expected to receive a significant boost, the new flight creating an anticipated 50,000 more tourist arrivals and generating over USD 110 million of tourist revenues for the Belgium economy annually.

The second daily flight, offering additional cargo capacity in the belly hold of the wide-body Boeing 777-300ER, will enhance trade links between Brussels and Dubai, transporting pharmaceuticals, perishables such as chocolates and automotive parts from Belgium to the U.A.E. and beyond.
