Brussels Airlines continues to expand its network in 2018. Due to the partnership with Thomas Cook Belgium, Brussels Airlines already announced 26 new holiday destinations for its summer timetable. Now, the airline is adding Kiev and Wroclaw to its year-round network. The first flight to Kiev will take off on October 19 and will be offered four times per week. As for Wroclaw, the airline will offer a thrice-weekly service starting October 29.
The capital of Ukraine is an important industrial, scientific, educational, and cultural center of Eastern Europe, and it is home to high-tech industries and higher education institutions, the airline said. Kiev also attracts tourists with its famous historical landmarks, nightlife scene, urban art, and unique culture.
Highlights include the Monastery of the Caves and a historic Orthodox Christian monastery overlooking the Dnieper River, the National Chernobyl Museum, St Sophia’s Cathedral, and the Mykola Syadristy Microminiatures Museum.
With Wroclaw, Brussels Airlines said it is strengthening its position in the Polish market, where it was already offering flights to and from Warsaw and Krakow. Wroclaw is a city with a rich history, carrying traces of Czech, German and Polish domination. It is the largest city in western Poland and the historical capital of Silesia and Lower Silesia, situated at the foot of the Sudetes, by the Oder River. In 2016, the city received the title of "Cultural capital of Europe".
Highlights in the Polish city are the 12 islands in the river and the 130 bridges, the old town and the market square. Wroclaw also has many green spaces, including a rock garden, a cactus greenhouse, and the most famous one “Park Szczytnicki”, an original Japanese Garden.
