Brussels Airlines welcomes over 10,000 Tomorrowland passengers

23:14 20/07/2017

Brussels Airlines this year launched its new 'party flights' concept, just in time for the Tomorrowland music festival, which starts on Friday. The airline had its Amare plane painted specially for the occasion. In total, Brussels Airlines will bring more than 10,000 passengers to Belgium for this year's festival, via 236 flights from 79 cities, the airline reports in a press release.

About 180 festival-goers already arrived in Brussels on Wednesday evening with the Amare from Ibiza. It is not the first time the airline adorns one of its fleet in a Belgian theme, which have so far included Tintin, Magritte and the Red Devils. The Tomorrowland custom plane features images of a large eagle with feathers that stretch to the tail of the plane.

On board the plane, passengers are treated to live sets by Belgian DJ Yves V and a special Tomorrowland dessert by star chef Roger Van Damme.

In total, Brussels Airlines is bringing 10,207 passengers to Belgium for Tomorrowland 2017. The most popular departure cities are Geneva, Madrid and Barcelona.
