Brussels Airlines to add Greece’s Kalamata to its destinations

On 24 October 2017 at 04:39

Currently not directly served from Brussels, Kalamata will be connected to Brussels Airport on a weekly basis starting with the next summer as Brussels Airlines sets sail for the new Greek holiday destination.

Located on the magnificent Peloponnesus peninsula in the heart of Messenia, the Kalamata region is one of the fastest growing tourism destinations in Greece. Since the development of the regional airport some years ago, Kalamata has been picked up by many French, German, Italian, British and Scandinavian travelers, according to a Brussels Airlines’ statement released last Thursday.

Thanks to Brussels Airlines’ new service that starts on 28 April 2018, Kalamata will also be reachable from Brussels Airport with just a three-hour flight. Azure blue sea, beautiful sandy beaches, endless olive gardens home to the world famous Kalamata olive, 4500 years of history and a paradise for foodies… The Kalamata region has all the ingredients for both an active, cultural and historic holiday as well as a relaxing family holiday.

The city of Kalamata is well worth a visit and is the perfect starting point to discover the region. Historic places like Olympia, Methoni, Nafplio and Mystros are nearby. Also the theater of Epidaurus is not far away. Very popular are the Costa Navarino resorts where a few beautiful luxury hotels are integrated in the idyllic landscape.

“With Kalamata we introduce the holidaymakers to a new very authentic destination. Those who want to explore the area on their own, can book a flight only via Brussels Airlines, but we are also cooperating with several tour operators who have already decided to add Kalamata to their holiday offer now that we offer direct flights. Thanks to its infrastructure, the region is also very interesting for Meetings and Incentives travel or so-called MICE travel,” says Frédéric Dechamps, Vice President Sales Benelux Brussels Airlines.

Founded by SN Airholding in 2002, Brussels Airlines is the Belgian national carrier that offers the widest choice of flights to and from the capital of Europe, Brussels Airport.
