After checking the current Jet2 network, I was wondering whether it would be a good move to start flying to Brussels.
The argument that Brussels is an expensive airport doesn't really count as Jet2 are also flying to Amsterdam and Paris.
For example: LS have 13 weekly flights from LBA to AMS, and 19 weekly flights from MAN to AMS. That's a total of 32 weekly flights from the UK to AMS.
Both routes are operated in competition with KL.
Paris sees one daily flights between LBA and CDG (I thought that LS had more flights to CDG, as I think I saw more than 1 LS B737 last time I was in CDG). This flight is in competition with the 14 weekly ERJ's of BD.
Compare this to BRU, where BA and SN are codesharing between BRU and MAN, and where BMI are filling 14 weekly ERJ's between BRU and LBA.
I'm quite sure that BRU would be able to sustain both a twice-daily BRU-MAN and a twice-daily BRU-LBA.
Any thoughts about Jet2 starting flights to BRU?
The same applies to WW by the way...
