Since mid-December, passengers have been able to book their flights to Africa on Brussels Airlines. Brussels Airlines is offering more intercontinental flights for the coming summer. This increase is accompanied by the introduction of a ninth Airbus A330. Commenting on the reinstatement of this ninth aircraft, the CEO of Brussels Airlines, Peter Gerber, underlined that ” we have always said that we would seek growth as soon as market conditions would allow it. As we see a strong demand in the West African market, we want to take the opportunity to grow and invest in the expansion of our African network. The award of this aircraft to Brussels Airlines is a clear sign of Lufthansa’s confidence in Brussels Airlines. It once again confirms our position as an expert in Africa within the Lufthansa Group.

From 11 June 2022, Brussels Airlines will thus resume its connections from Brussels to Conakry (Guinea) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso). Three weekly flights will connect the Belgian capital with these two airports. The routes to Conakry and Ouagadougou had been suspended in March 2020 with the Covid pandemic.

The Belgian airline is also strengthening its presence in West and East Africa. Five destinations will benefit from an increase in frequency. In West Africa, these are Banjul, Lomé and Monrovia. Each will be served by five weekly flights. In East Africa, Entebbe will be served with one daily flight while Kigali will have five weekly flights.

In

addition, Brussels Airlines confirms that it will again offer daily flights to New York with the introduction of the summer schedules.
