That was also what more can be, because a lot of fans knew a ticket for the competition to get hold of, but found no flight more in the direction of Kazan. The two flights that the airline Brussels Airlines had inlaid for supporters of the Red Devils, were Tuesday in less than an hour sold out. ‘Initially there was even one flight scheduled’, well-known belgian football association spokesman Pierre Cornez to Belga. “Eventually there were two fanflights, good for just a little more than four hundred places. Our partner Brussels Airlines has tried to make a third flight to put in them, unfortunately it wasn’t possible. We certainly have understanding for the problems of some travelers, but the belgian football association is not a travel agent. Additionally, we should be happy with a partner as Brussels Airlines: the fanflights are sure to be a success, the feedback is positive. In total, took care of the flights of 4,500 fans, with a good price-performance ratio. Brussels Airlines has especially sought solutions for the supporters, because Russia is not always easily accessible.’
