Brussels Airlines will launch new flights to Milan’s Linate Airport later this year.
The carrier will operate 12 weekly flights between the Belgian capital and Linate, while it already offers 30 scheduled flights a week to the Italian city’s largest airport, Malpensa.
This means that there will be a total of seven daily flights to Milan from Brussels, which affords greater choice to business and leisure passengers alike.
From October 25th, Brussels Airlines will offer a morning and afternoon departure from Belgium, with return flights from Linate operating at noon and in the evening.
Flights will be operated on Avro RJ aircraft.
Linate is considered to be the city airport of Milan due to its close proximity to the city centre. This makes it especially popular with business passengers as well as tourists embarking on short city breaks.
Because it is just 8km from Milan, Linate is mainly used for domestic and short-haul international flights.
Elsewhere, Brussels Airlines began offering flights to Libreville in Gabon last month thanks to its partnership with German national airline Lufthansa.
