Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp Airports represented at Antwerp Holiday Fair Jan 24th-27th
The largest holiday fair in Flanders will be held at Antwerp Expo this year, from Thursday Jan 24th till Sunday Jan 27th. Exhibitors at the fair will be divided in two groups: the close to home holidays and the far from home holidays. Our stand can be found in hall 4 at stand 4600 with the far from home holidays, meaning holidays for which you travel by airplane.
Airports invite professionals on opening day
At the opening, Thursday morning, we fly right into the action. From 10am to 12am all tour operators and other professionals will be welcome in the BLACK BOX in hall 1 (stand 1403), which has been rented out by the Airport. The BLACK BOX is an area that has been customized in order to inform participants, in a private and very hospitable atmosphere, of current and future flight offers. TUI fly (with spokesman Piet Demeyere), Flybe (with marketing director Bernd Behrend) and new company La Nova (with CEO David Roman) will demonstrate their strengths and illustrate their cooperation with the regional Airport(s). Marcel Buelens, CEO of both regional Airports, will start things off.
Visitors will be pampered
Stand 4600 in hall 4 will prove itself the place to be at Antwerp’s Holiday Fair. The two Airports will highlight their destinations and bring the holiday atmosphere by integrating TUI fly and Flybe as subexhibitors in the main booth.
Gadgets + photos + airplane tickets
For four days straight, the regional Airports and the two airline companies will indulge thousands of visitors with a fun and diverse series of gadgets. To top things off, every day there will be four duo tickets up for grabs.
How to participate in the contest?
Through this global social media contest we will involve every visitor of the Holiday Fair. The regional Airports, along with TUI fly and Flybe, will deliver a powerful message at this edition of the Holiday Fair: #flyrelaxflyregional
The fair will take place at Antwerp Expo from Thursday Jan 24th until Sunday Jan 27th 2019, with doors open daily from 10am to 6pm. Tickets for the Antwerp Holiday Fair can be purchased at http://www.vakantiesalon-antwerpen.be/tickets/
Airline announces new route from Ostend-Bruges Airport
Thursday 20 December 2018 – Pobeda, low cost branch of the Russian Aeroflot Group, announced the launch of three weekly flights to Moscow (Vnukovo). This is an important extension of the airport’s network as it is for the airline since it is their first Belgian route.
Flights will be operated three times per week as of March 7th 2019 on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The Pobeda airline fleet consists only of 24 modern Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
Marcel Buelens, CEO of Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp Airport is delighted: “These new scheduled flights are great news for our airport but also for the entire region. Tourism in Flanders will profit from this connection, enabling both short breaks as longer stays. Besides the Belgian passengers we expect to attract customers from nearby North of France and the South-West of The Netherlands.”
Seats on the direct flights from Ostend-Bruges to Moscow are now available www.pobeda.aero. Please note: flights start as of 7 March 2019. When selecting your flight, chose departure airport Bruges (Ostend). Full details will follow mid January.
