Since it was announced earlier this week that the United States would open its borders to vaccinated passengers in early November, the number of bookings for flights to New York has risen dramatically with Brussels Airlines.
“In the first two days after the announcement, the number of bookings per day was almost three times higher than last week’s daily average,” said Brussels Airlines spokeswoman Mike Andres. The first week of November, so after the entry ban is lifted, the period around Christmas and New Year is especially popular.
“The end of the U.S. embargo is a big step for us to get out of this crisis,” the spokesman said. “Our flights to and from Africa throughout the epidemic were stable and we saw a strong recovery in our European market last summer. It is a relief for us and our passengers to have equal conditions for European and American travelers again after a long time, as we clearly see in the bookings.
Brussels Airlines only flies to one destination in the United States during the winter: New York (JFK Airport). There are four flights a week.
