The only airline flying to Seville (SVQ) from Brussels is Iberia, from €234.
UPDATE A cheaper alternative is to fly to Malaga with Ryanair and then rent a car to go to Seville (i.e. with PepeCar, both together from €101 total. It is only a two and a half hour drive (map). Especially good if traveling in a group (thanks to @simonmc for the tip.)
[Evarest] We can take the plane to Madrid (Ryanair) and there rent a car to travel to Seville. Apparently, there's also a train connection. Anyway, I suggest that we try to take the same plane together, as this makes the travel to and fro a bit more pleasant :)
Yes there is a high speed train (AVE) to Seville, prices vary and we have a 30% off voucher that can be redeemed at a Renfe shop
but is expensive. Good if you want to do business or tourism in Madrid.
Vueling and Brussels Airlines do not fly to Seville in November
Brussels Airlines also flights direct to Seville.
The cheapest direct flights can be booked via Vueling (€128 without suitcase). It has to be done in the three months prior to the flight, not sooner.
