Ryanair announced the launch of three new routes from Brussels South Charleroi Airport as part of its Brussels Charleroi Summer 2013 schedule to Essaouira twice weekly from 5h May and Rabat three times weekly (Morocco) from 2nd May, and Targu Mures (Romania) in 2013 twice weekly from 30th April.
Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) CEO Jean-Jacques Cloquet said "We are delighted to see all airlines present at BSCA adding new routes for the upcoming summer season. The three new destinations that Ryanair is adding this summer are promising for the airport since Morocco is already the third most important country for us in terms of passenger numbers and therefore clearly in demand. Romania is now becoming more accessible as a touristic destination and we expect the route to generate quite some VFR traffic into Belgium and its surrounding areas. "
Ryanair’s Jonathan Brisy said "Ryanair is pleased to announce 3 new Brussels Charleroi routes to/from Essaouira and Rabat (Morocco) and Transylvania Targu Mures (Romania) from April 2013, as part of our Brussels summer 2013 schedule, with 78 routes."
Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) handled 6.5 million passengers in 2012 up 10% the airport is being conserative with traffic forecast for this year not expecting an significant increase, although Jetairfly, Ryanair and Wizzair will add new routes.
