SunExpress grows Turkey network from Brussels and looks at more development

SunExpress has further expanded its capacity from Brussels Airport by adding a twice-weekly route to Antalya and has plans to grow its network from the base further in future.

The carrier starting operating the new Brussels-Antalya route from 31 March, and flies on a Tuesday and Saturday.

Izmir will see direct flights on a Tuesday, Friday and Sunday from 15 June and flights to Ankara will run every Monday and Thursday from 14 June.

SunExpress commercial director, Peter Glade said: “We are very satisfied with the development we have seen here in Brussels in the last few years, now doubling our capacity in summer 2018.

“While currently our services are only summer seasonal we are constantly evaluating if at least Antalya could be operated year-round, the only missing link here are the tour operator partners willing to support in winter as well.”

Brussels Airport head of aviation development, Léon Verhallen said the Turkish market is seeing a strong comeback from Belgium and Brussels in particular.

He added: “We are even more excited to hear that year-round services are being considered and we encourage local tour operators to support SunExpress to enable more winter flights to Turkey.”
