New budget airline from October
7 May 2007
BRUSSELS – Another budget airline will be servicing Brussels Airport starting 28 October this year. Scandinavian carrier Sterling Airlines will start offering service to Denmark, Sweden and Norway, according to a press release from the company.
Over the past few months Brussels Airport has been trying to attract not only more long-haul flights but also budget airlines. The airport’s strategy seems to be working. Both EasyJet and SkyEurope recently announced their arrival at Zaventem, and Air Berlin is also interested in servicing Brussels, according to reports in the media.
These developments are making Brussels Airport more of a competitor for Charleroi, which is serviced by Ryanair.
Sterling Airlines will fly daily to Copenhagen and four times a week to Oslo and Stockholm starting at the end of October.
