DEURNE – After an absence of almost five months, airline TUI fly will fly again from Antwerp to five Spanish destinations as of Tuesday 20 April: Alicante airport, Malaga, Mallorca, Ibiza and Murcia.
The decision is the next step in the gradual restart of the flight schedule and brings some flight movements to Deurne again. After Brussels, Charleroi and Ostend, Antwerp is the fourth Belgian airport from which TUI is organising flights this spring.
This summer, a new destination will be offered from Antwerp: Avignon. It has been almost five months since the last TUI fly flight to Alicante departed from Antwerp. Since then, the measures against the Covid-19 pandemic restricted air traffic to such an extent that TUI fly was forced to offer flights from Zaventem and Charleroi only.
The airline emphasises that all internationally ratified corona protocols are respected on these flights. With regard to the Spanish flights, the traveller must also have a negative corona test that is no more than 72 hours old.
Eric Dumas, CEO Antwerp Airport is pleased with the restart: “Thanks to the regional character of our airport we have all the assets to spread passengers and flights as much as possible and thus create a safe travel environment. In addition to all the precautionary measures we still guarantee short waiting times at the check-in desk, a smooth security check and a carefree departure.”
