Brussels Airlines has decided to already release its Summer 2022 offer, as it sees demand returning. “Due to the uncertainty the coronavirus crisis brought along, booking behaviour had changed and passengers booked their flight tickets very shortly before departure,” said the airline in a press release. “Since a few weeks, this trend of last-minute bookings is slowly coming to an end, showcasing the trust of the public at the end of a period of uncertainty,” the Belgian airline added.
To meet the high demand for holiday travel after two years of travel restrictions, Brussels Airlines has extended its offer in the leisure market. With extra flights to the most popular holiday routes in the peak season, the airline wants to respond to the wishes of its customers of whom some have been looking forward for over two years to travel again.
