When Will EK Fly To BRU?

When flying to AUH on Etihad, I notice that more than 90% of passengers are connecting to South-Africa, India, South-East Asia, Australia,... Most passengers with AUH as final destination are in fact heading to Dubai.

When do you think EK will start a BRU service? One of the few remaining capitals in Western Europe they do not fly to. EK would definitely have a nice yield, and offer a product superior to Etihad's. Qatar Airways will add BRU to their network early 2011, so there must be some business there for EK as well.

I expect it will happen in future, especially if EK is not allowed to increase its flights out of Paris. But right now I guess any demand from BRU can be met by EK's newish service ex-AMS.
Remember that the new high-speed trains from central Brussels operate direct to Schiphol so the latter is a feasable alternative.

I expect EK to start up somewhere in Scandinavia as well. Tim Clark has previously been mentioning CPH, but nothing has materialized.



Future flights: CPH-BRU-CPHx2; CPH-BKK-MNL; MNL-GUM-HNL-LAX

I would guess that BRU, CPH and DUB (maybe in that order) would probably be the next three destinations in Western Europe. When is anybody's guess

Given that SN cooperates with EY I somehow doubt it!

We shall see what happens next year, once SN becomes a genuine LH subsidiary...

Maybe they won't since a lot of Indian traffic is already taken by 9W

After EY and QR, unless there is some sort of gentlemen's agreement between EK and EY, we should probably see EK show up in BRU one day or another. If not in the next 2 years, then when they are rolling their smaller aircraft to new destinations as larger A380's ply their previous routes. I'm not sure EY would survive the move but seeing that these 3 airlines actually cater to a lot of traffic beyond their respective hubs, there might be place in BRU for all three.

Sadly that will not help in supporting the case for direct flights, particularly to the Asia region (HKG, SIN, BKK,...).



I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!

BRU, CPH, OSL, ARN, HEL, Berlin, DUB, BFS... etc

Only a matter of time before we see one of those beautiful EK A332s headed there.

I was under the impression that the A332 wouldn't live much longer at EK, maybe something else such as the A333 of a B787 by that time.

The earlier ones will be leaving progressively over the next few years but the A332 is staying until their A359s arrive IIRC.

Not for a while yet.
