Brussels Airlines Set to Return to Africa with Enhanced Service
After reducing its intercontinental routes in 2020 following the COVID-19 pandemic, Brussels Airlines is going for growth again in Africa, its most important market.
The airline now sees an increasing demand in the market, creating an opportunity to expand its presence in West Africa again from June 2022.
To help it drive its return to intercontinental flying, especially to Africa, Brussels Airlines will take delivery of a 9th Airbus A330 aircraft in June 2022.
With the extra capacity, the airline will resume flights to Conakry (Guinea) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) and add frequencies on its routes to Freetown, Monrovia, Banjul and Lomé.
Flights from Brussels to both Conakry and Ouagadougou will operate 3 times a week using an Airbus A330 aircraft.
Brussels Airlines had, in 2020, discontinued its operations to Conakry and Ouagadougou as part of the network resizing during the airline’s turnaround plan following the COVID-19 crisis.
Brussels Airlines is Belgium's national airline, connecting the capital of Europe to more than 70 destinations, including 15 in Africa.
