Brussels Airlines Launches Service to Toronto
Brussels Airlines announced that it began new service to Toronto. The new route, which the carrier will operate five times a week, follows the airline’s resumption of flights on April 3, almost two weeks after the deadly terrorist attacks that rocked the airport and the city on March 22.
The airline’s new flights to Toronto will depart Brussels Airport at 10:30 a.m. and arrive at Toronto Pearson International Airport at 1:20 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. From Toronto, flights are scheduled to depart at 6:30 p.m. and arrive in Brussels at 7:50 a.m. the next morning.
The carrier will operate the service using Airbus A330-200 aircraft, equipped with 22 lie-flat seats in business class and 250 seats in economy class. Business-class seats are 20.5” wide and have a bed length of 70.5”.
The new route was originally set to begin at the end of March, but was pushed back due to the airport’s closure following the attacks.
Brussels Airlines is one of approximately 20 airlines to begin at least partial operations at the airport since the incidents.
