Brussels Airlines launches Nuremberg


By: Mathias Amoah-  Daily Express

As from 15 February, 2016 Brussels Airlines will operate six flights a week between Brussels and Nuremberg, the second largest city of Bavaria.

Brussels Airlines continues to expand its network in Germany, adding Nuremberg as a destination comes next year, only a couple of months after successfully launching flights to Bremen. The capital of the region Franconia will be connected with Brussels Airport six times a week.

“The new route is very good news for the large number of businessmen, EU-officials and lobbyists who so far could not travel between Nuremberg and the European capital”, says Brussels Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Lars Redeligx. “As from 15 February we will offer them direct flights and smooth connections to other European destinations on all weekdays and on Sunday.”

“We are delighted with the new connection for the winter season. It allows us to respond to the large demand of the local industry in Nuremberg”, explains Dr. Michel Hupe, the Director of Nuremberg airport. “By connecting the metropolis with the most important European hubs and business centers, Brussels Airlines fills a void”, he states.

Flights are scheduled in the late afternoon, making it possible to travel between Nuremberg and numerous other Brussels Airlines destinations in Spain, the UK and Scandinavia, via Brussels Airport. All flights are operated with Embraer 140 Regional Jets.

Nuremberg is also known to be the living museum of the German history. Emperors and princesses, political leaders and their followers, inventors and scientists made the city well-known and contributed to its long and turbulent history. The splendid castle, the State Theatre, the Toy Museum and the world-famous Christmas market are just a few of the very inviting and frequently visited cultural ambassadors of the city.

With this new route, Brussels Airlines now offers no less than eight destinations in Germany. The Belgian airline connects the European capital with Berlin, Hamburg, Hannover, Nuremberg and Bremen while Lufthansa links Brussels Airport to Frankfurt and Munich, and German wings operates a direct flight to Stuttgart.
