New flights to Marseilles with SN Brussels Airlines


01.02.2004

As of 1 March, it will once again be possible to travel from Geneva to Marseilles by air, thanks to SN Brussels Airlines, which will be making a daily flight five times a week.

SN Brussels Airlines is Belgium’s largest airline and already has a presence at Geneva International Airport, from where it flies four times a day to Brussels. It will link Geneva to Marseilles Provence airport, one of its destinations from the Belgian capital.. A service of this kind, known as a “seventh freedom”, is possible because of bilateral agreements between Switzerland and the European Union. SN Brussels Airlines is one of the very first European airlines to make use of these new rights.

Marseilles no longer needs any introduction: it is France’s second city and the country’s largest port, the gateway to Provence and all its tourist charms, and also the centre of an economically highly dynamic region.

The new air route will be operated using AVRO Regional Jets, which have 84 leather-clad seats. SN Brussels Airlines operates 32 aircraft of this type, the largest fleet of its kind in Europe.

During the flight, which takes just over an hour, passengers will be able to enjoy a free snack, drinks and newspapers. Members of the “Privilege” frequent-flyer program will be able to earn and redeem miles on the route - and on 700 others. SN Brussels Airlines makes more than 285 flights every day to 54 European cities, 14 destinations in Africa, and Chicago.
