ANA to launch first direct flights to Brussels

2 Jun 2015 by Clement Huang

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is set to launch a new route from its base in Tokyo Narita to the Belgian capital of Brussels.
While an exact launch date has not been given, the airline confirmed that the service is slated to start for its 2015 winter schedule.  
The new route will complement ANA’s existing European services, which it operates out of either Tokyo Narita or Haneda to Frankfurt, Munich, Düsseldorf, London and Paris.
The direct service to Brussels is a first. Travellers from Japan normally have to transit through various European gateways in order to get to the city. ANA customers, for instance, rely on the carrier’s ties with Star Alliance partner Lufthansa to transit towards Brussels.
“We are thrilled to welcome ANA to the family of airlines flying to Brussels, one of Europe’s major hubs, which lacked a direct flight from Japan. The new route will provide improved convenience for both European and Japanese travellers,” said Arnaud Feist, chief executive of Brussels Airport Company.  
Brussels is home to the principal institutions of the EU, as well as the headquarters of NATO. The city is also a popular tourist destination, known for its rich culture and architectural attractions.
