RYANAIR CONFIRMS BRUSSELS ZAVENTEM BASE WILL NOT RE-OPEN IN S23

RYANAIR CONFIRMS BRUSSELS ZAVENTEM BASE WILL NOT RE-OPEN IN S23

DUE TO 11% ZAVENTEM PRICE INCREASE 12 RYR ZAVENTEM ROUTES WILL CONTINUE ON NON-BASED AIRCRAFT

Contrary to recent speculation, Ryanair today (11 Jan) confirmed that it will not re-open its Brussels Zaventem base in S23 due to Zaventem Airport’s decision to increase prices by 11% from April 2023. Unlike many other EU airports who are lowering prices to recover traffic lost during the Covid pandemic or freezing charges to stimulate passenger growth, Brussels Zaventem has chosen to jack up prices yet again by 11% for airlines and passengers from April 2023 making it even more uncompetitive compared to other Belgian and EU airports. Ryanair confirmed that it will still operate 12 routes to/from Brussels Zaventem for S23 on aircraft which are based outside Belgium as follows;

Ryanair flights to/from Charleroi will be unaffected by this decision not to re-open the Zaventem base. Ryanair expects to operate 109 routes to/from Brussels Charleroi for S23.

Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:

“Despite recent rumours, we will not be re-opening our Brussels Zaventem base in S23 due to Zaventem Airport’s decision to increase prices by 11% for airlines and passengers from April 2023. However, customers can still book Ryanair’s low fares on 12 Zaventem routes that will continue to operate to/from Brussels Zaventem for S23 on aircraft based outside Belgium.

Ryanair’s flights on 109 routes to/from Charleroi will be unaffected by this decision and we look forward to welcoming millions of Belgian customers/visitors onboard our flights to/from both Brussels Charleroi and Zaventem Airports this Summer.”
