With the end of October marking the start of the winter flight and holiday season, Brussels South Charleroi Airport has announced five new routes to Israel, Austria, Georgia, Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Ryanair launched its new line to Tel Aviv in Israel on Monday. The low-cost company is operating four flights a week on Boeing 737-800s, with a capacity of 189 seats. Prices from €24.99.

Meanwhile, Austrian airline Laudamotion touched down at Charleroi airport on Sunday (pictured, above). The Ryanair subsidiary is now operating six flights a week between Vienna and Brussels-Charleroi on 180-seat Airbus A320s. Prices from €9.99 one way.

Air Belgium’s Airbus A340s are due to take off to Fort-de-France (Martinique) and Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe) from 7 December. The first transatlantic flights from Charleroi will be operating twice a week to the French Antilles destinations. The Belgian scheduled and charter company previously offered a regular service to Hongkong in 2018, before suspending the flights.

Hungarian low-cost Wizz Air launched direct flights to Georgia in September. Charleroi is connected to the country’s second biggest city Kutaisi via two flights a week on 180-seater Airbus A320s. The company, which operates flights to 12 cities in Central and Eastern Europe, will also continue to offer a service to Ljubljana, Slovenia, from 19 December.
