Brussels Airlines introduces new Economy Light fare on North American routes

From today, Brussels Airlines is offering a so-called Economy Light fare option on North American routes. The new offer is the cheapest choice for passengers who are travelling with hand luggage only and do not require ticket flexibility.

“The new Economy Light Fare is a further development of our efforts to offer individualized solutions to cater to the needs of our different types of guests,” said Dirk Janzen, VP Pricing & Revenue Management, Distribution and Commercial Steering. “It is a logical step after having introduced a similar hand luggage-only fare on our European routes in 2014. From now on, guests on our North American destinations will be able to only pay for the product they actually use.”

Economy Light passengers have the option of individually booking a piece of luggage or reserving a particular seat against a fee, and adding services that best meet their needs. Meals and drinks continue to be free of charge for all passengers on board.

Brussels Airlines is introducing the new Economy Light fare on its North American destinations (New York, Washington D.C. and Toronto) together with Austrian, Lufthansa and Swiss as well as with its A++ joint venture partners United and Air Canada.
