Ryanair NOT to start flights to Brussels in June 2009


UPDATED: The day after this news appeared in El Correo Gallego, the same paper reported that all this was a misunderstanding. There will be no new route between santiago and Brussels.

El Correo Gallego reports today that Ryanair is planning to open a new route from Santiago de Compostela to Brussels in June. There will be 3 flights per week, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. So people in the Brussels area could make it a long weekend and visit the town of Santiago de Compostela.

The airport in Brussels that will be used, Charleroi,  is located about 6km from town.

Ryanair also indicated that for holy year 2010 they are thinking of adding more routes, but that this all depends on how the negotiation with the local government in Santiago (and the new Xunta that just got elected) goes.
