The airline, Brussels Airlines, is preparing to welcome aboard nearly 90,000 passengers this coming weekend. This will be the first weekend of summer holiday departures, from 30th June to 2nd July. It announced this on Monday in a communiqué. It is delighted to say that this is an increase of 10,000 holidaymakers compared to the same weekend last year. Over the weekend, families with children will be welcomed at the airport by Smurfs.
The traditional summer holiday destinations are the most in demand. The majority of Brussels Airlines customers are thus flying to Spain, Portugal, Greece or Italy. For long-haul flights, the cities of New York and Toronto are a tremendous success.
The company stresses that during the last two weekends of July, it will carry more than 10,000 festival-goers from all around the world, going to the Tomorrowland festival. It is anticipated that additional staff will be needed by Brussels Airlines in Brussels Airport at Zaventem, to welcome passengers.
The company is recommending that holidaymakers check in online 24 hours before their flight leaves, to avoid long waiting queues. Customers travelling with children are asked not to forget their Kids ID document (the electronic identity document for Belgian children under 12). Brussels Airlines also recommends placing valuable items, keys, documents and medicines in hand luggage.
