An end to Brussels - Amsterdam flights?

It seems an end to one of the shortest commercial jet flights in Europe will be coming to an end after the second chamber of the Dutch Parliament has voted in favour of banning the Brussels - Amsterdam route.

The route between Amsterdam and Brussels is linked by a number of daily flights, however, campaigners have said repeatedly that train journey times are comparable and are far more environmentally sound. The Chamber called on the Dutch Government to work out a way to gradually phase out the flights with the airlines and airports. 

We have approached the Royal Dutch Airline, KLM regarding the future of its service operated by Cityhopper Embraer jets.
