Brussels Airlines to resume flights on downsized summer sked

Brussels Airlines will restart commercial flights next month with a significantly downsized summer schedule, planning to reach 59 destinations in 33 countries in Europe, Africa and the U.S. by August. Hard-hit by the coronavirus crisis, the company which employs 4,000 people has like many airlines suspended flights as a result of the health crisis. It said it is losing 1 million euros ($1.1 million) a day because of revenue losses, aircraft leasing and maintenance costs, and has asked the government for support. Brussels Airlines will relaunch flying operations on June 15, following a 12-week interruption due to the pandemic.
