From Zaventem Airport, tourists departed for the United States again Monday morning, after a year and a half of mandatory “Coronapas”. Spokeswoman Maaike Andries confirmed that the passenger flight from Brussels Airlines to New York was packed immediately, promising that it would be busy again in the coming weeks.
As of today, the United States has lifted entry restrictions and allowed vaccinated European travelers to re-enter the country with a negative PCR test. Three flights departed from Brussels Airport this morning: one from Brussels Airlines to New York and two flights from United Airlines to Washington and Newark.
It is not or is not possible for travelers from the European Union to travel to the United States for one and a half years. Brussels Airlines spokeswoman Maaike Andries said: “The strong hunger for a return to the United States is clear. The flight to New York this morning has already been fully booked with 291 passengers.”
According to Andres, the chances of empty planes flying to the United States in the coming weeks and months are slim. “The number of bookings is high, but there are still seats on most flights. We see a high demand for flights to New York, especially at Christmas.”
Brussels Airlines operates four flights a week to New York for the winter, which begins on October 31. The company has previously said it may add flights to the schedule during the winter holidays if market demand continues to grow.
