Air Belgium's Inaugural Flight Touches Down in South Africa


Air Belgium has commenced two-weekly service between Belgium and South Africa with non-stop flights from Brussels to Cape Town and Johannesburg.


Operated by an Airbus A330neo, the inaugural flight took off yesterday from Zaventem Airport, Brussels at 19:45 local time and landed at O.R. Tambo International Airport at 8:00 this morning.


The flights will be operated by a three-class Airbus A330-900neo offering 286 seats, including 30 in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy, and 235 in Economy. Promotional fares start from €553 from Johannesburg and €722 from Cape Town.


Flight Schedule


• Brussels – Johannesburg: Flight KF 2305 JNB 19:45 – JNB 07:15+1 Wednesday and Sunday.


• Johannesburg – Cape Town: Flight KF 2305 JNB 08:45 – CPT 11:10 Monday and Thursday.


• Cape Town – Johannesburg: Flight KF 2306 CPT 15:00 – JNB 17:15 Monday and Thursday.


• Johannesburg – Brussels: Flight KF 2306 JNB 18:45 – BRU 06:15+1 Monday and Thursday.


This new service also seeks to reduce travel time between Belgium and South Africa with a non-stop service, travelers looking to fly from Brussels to Johannesburg and Cape Town use major European hubs such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London or Zurich.


To offer seamless connectivity, Air Belgium has signed a codeshare deal with South Africa’s Airlink. Passengers can connect to and from 38 destinations in South Africa, DR Congo, Tanzania, Angola, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Zambia, Uganda, Botswana, Mozambique, Lesotho and Madagascar.


The new service is coming 20 years after Belgium and South Africa saw non-stop flights. The last airline that operated non-stop services between the two nations was the defunct Sabena airline.


Air Belgium is a Belgian airline operating scheduled and charter flights from its hub at Brussels South Charleroi Airport. With a fleet of 9 aircraft, the airline currently flies to 8 international destinations.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue
