Following the demise of Sabena, easyJet decided that it wants to start flying ex BRU. According to Bloomberg easyJet has applied for slots at BRU for flights to/from London Gatwick, Liverpool and Belfast. The operations should start next summer. Frequencies and number of slots requested unknown but i expect at least 3 daily flights for both Liverpool and LGW and a daily flight on the belfast route.
It looks like Brussels will become a battle ground for low cost operators. Ryanair offers services from Charleroi to/from London Stansted, Virgin Express is on the BRU-London Heathrow route and easyJet wants to have BRU London Gatwick flights (strange that they haven't chosen for flights to Luton).
I wonder what this news will mean for DAT +. Having easyJet as a competitor means bad news. Moreover as they will operate out of BRU and not Charleroi.
