SkyAlps vliegt deze winter opnieuw rechtstreeks van Antwerpen naar de Dolomieten

Vanaf 23 december 2023 tot 13 april 2024 vlieg je in minder dan twee uur rechtstreeks van Antwerp Airport naar Bolzano, de hoofdstad van de Italiaanse provincie Zuid-Tirol. De gerenommeerde maatschappij SkyAlps last drie heen-en-terug-vluchten in per week, telkens op woensdag, zaterdag en zondag.

Een enkel ticket is beschikbaar vanaf 174 euro, taksen incl. En ook de vluchtduur is met een gemiddelde van 90 minuten erg laag. Daarmee is het verreweg de makkelijkste manier om komende winter in het Dolomietengebergte te raken. De luchthaven van Bolzano ligt namelijk op amper een uurtje rijden van de Italiaanse skipistes. Zo zoef je dezelfde dag nog over de legendarische Sella Ronda.

De vluchten wordt uitgevoerd met een turbopropvliegtuig De Havilland Dash Q400 met 76 zitjes en vliegt bijna even snel als een regionale turbojet.

Vertrek op woensdag en zondag telkens om 16.40 u., aankomst om 18.35 u. in Bolzano. Op zaterdag is het vertrek om 14.40 u. en aankomst in Italië om 16.35 u. De terugvluchten zijn woensdag en zondag om 14 u. Met aankomst in Antwerpen om 15.55 u. Op zaterdag is de retourvlucht om 12 u. met aankomst om 13.55 u.

Mr Dai Hao Yu, Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines, said: “Brussels is an important European economic and political centre, and the launch of this service adds another historical and charming city to SIA’s list of destinations.

The secretariat of the Benelux and headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are also located in the city. It is the most densely populated city in Belgium with the highest gross domestic product (GDP) per capita. Brussels’ unique geographical location makes it an ideal hub for rail, road, and air traffic, earning the city the moniker The Crossroads of Europe.
