The two strongest players in the Belgian aviation market will welcome tomorrow’s traveller to their common stand (stand 242, hall 6). This year, the focus will be on the large offer of low-fare destinations from Brussels Airport and the attractive prices in the airport shops. During the winter season, the low-cost carriers and the traditional airlines at Brussels Airport together offer direct low-fare flights to 88 destinations for an all-in fare of less than 100 euros. Brussels Airport thus serves three times as many destinations in the low-fare segment than all of the other Belgian airports combined.

The stand at the Holiday Fair will also spotlight the Lowest Price Guaranteed campaign. Travellers who buy perfume, cosmetics, clothing, leather goods, watches, jewellery, writing materials, sunglasses or chocolates by Neuhaus, Godiva and Corné Port-Royal in one of the Sky Shops outlets at Brussels Airport is sure to pay the lowest price in Belgium. On the chocolate brands Neuhaus, Godiva and Corné Port-Royal, Sky Shops even guarantee the lowest price worldwide.
