Brussels Airlines enhances its Africa network
Sep 19, 2018: In a recent move, Belgian airline Brussels Airlines has enhanced its Africa network.
As of next year, the airline adds 3 extra flights per week to Banjul (Gambia) and will operate 3 out of the 7 weekly frequencies to Dakar (Senegal) as a direct flight, without a stop in another African airport.
At the same time, the airline will cease its operations to Mumbai on January 6 for economic reasons as the route does not deliver the anticipated results. The airline launched Mumbai flights in March 2017. The Mumbai flight capacity will be used to refocus on Africa, the core intercontinental business of Brussels Airlines.
Customers who had booked flights to or from Mumbai after January 6 are being contacted by Brussels Airlines and are offered alternative travel solutions to get to their final destination.
On the short-haul network, Brussels Airlines adds two new destinations: as from October Kiev (Ukraine) will be served 4 times a week and as of February a 3-weekly service to Wroclaw (Poland) will be launched. Furthermore the airline adds additional frequencies to existing destinations this winter season, including Alicante, Billund, Bordeaux, Faro, Geneva, Lisbon, Malaga and Tel Aviv.
Brussels Airlines is also making a significant investment this winter in its long-haul product and overall on board experience by gradually renewing the cabins of its ten Airbus A330 aircraft, launching a brand new Business Class, a renewed Economy Class and for the first time a Premium Economy Class in a separate cabin. The first refurbished aircraft will be ready in December.
