A sky-high Christmas12/11/2019

Feeling like spending Christmas break under the sun? Good news! Air Belgium is here for you. The Belgian airline company is about to open new routes from South Charleroi Airport to Fort de France (Guadeloupe) and Pointe à Pitre (Martinique).The first commercial flight is planned on December 7TH. Nicky Terzakis- Air Belgium’s CEO- is cleared for takeoff.

This year, Air Belgium sees the sky through rose-tinted glasses. From December 7th ahead, the new airline company- founded in 2016- will provide connections to the French isles twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The trip is worth 401 euros.  

Travelling has never been that easy

The company’s objective is crystal clear:  to facilitate their passengers ‘journey by offering the promise of a remote paradise land while avoiding the difficulties of the phone network together with the never ending administrative procedures often linked to trips abroad. After all, Guadeloupe is France! Procedures are therefore much simpler for Belgian travelers. Once they have landed, they just need to show their national ID when their phones will just adapt to European roaming in the exact same way as these devices would do in continental France. On top of that, passengers will also be able to choose between three different classes on board: Business, Premium or Economy.

Air Belgium has therefore reached its objectives so far. By suggesting such routes, the airline company offers the 24.000 annual Belgian passengers -according to the newspaper La libre-the comfort of a direct flight whereas before, they had to stop at Paris Orly. Counting on all these undeniable perks, Air Belgium hopes it will soon be able to duplicate its yearly BSCA travellers (boarding at Charleroi Airport?).  

The Belgians are used to driving eleven hours in a row to reach their holiday villa in the South of France. Here, we would like to give them the opportunity to fly only for nine hours before renting their hotel in the French isles.” reports François Baltus –Languedoc, general manager of the Committee of Tourism in Martinique.

Towards bright horizons

Such assets put aside, Nicky Terzakis’s company wishes it could go beyond Belgian borders and seduce users from Luxembourg, Germany and North of France.

In order to complete this mission, Air Belgium can of course rely on the constantly expanding Brussels South Charleroi Airport. BSCA now offers flights to Tel Aviv three times a week with Ryanair and also two flights to Kutaïssi weekly with Wizz air, an opportunity for travelling fans to discover the second bigger city of Georgia.

Winter is surely going to be hot at BSCA airport!
