Brussels Airlines has announced it is offering its guests a new Economy Light fare option on North American routes. The new offer is the cheapest choice for passengers who are traveling with hand luggage only and do not require ticket flexibility. The airline introduced a similar hand luggage-only fare on its European routes in 2014.

Economy Light passengers have the option of individually booking a piece of luggage or reserving a particular seat against a fee, and to personalize their experience by adding services that best meet their needs. Meals and drinks continue to be free of charge for all passengers on board. The Economy Light fares start at €383 (approximately $445) for a return flight to New York JFK.

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.

Brussels Airlines is Belgium's national airline, connecting the country to 122 destinations, including 24 in Africa, more than 90 in Europe, 3 in North America and Tel Aviv and Mumbai. The company has over 3,900 employees and 48 aircraft operating some 250 flights daily, flying more than 9 million passengers a year to, via and from Brussels Airport. Brussels Airlines offers cargo capacity on all its flights, commercialized by Lufthansa Cargo. The airline also handles the daily maintenance of its aircraft fleet.

Brussels Airlines is part of the Eurowings Group and member of Star Alliance. The company was founded in 2002 and is owned by Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
