(Posted 31st January 2014)

Apart from adding two Polish destinations from March onwards, namely Warsaw and Krakow, will Brussels Airlines this summer add nine extra seasonal destinations across Europe. SN will serve Malta, Athens, Cagliari, Bari, Seville, Montpellier but also Ajaccio, Bari and Bastia effective the date of their summer schedule.

This will be good news for travellers from East Africa where Brussels Airlines serves Bujumbura, Kigali, Entebbe and Nairobi with an Airbus A330-200, providing expatriates from those cities with direct flights home while those seeking a summer vacation in Italy or Greece of on Malta will be able to connect there via Brussels.

A team of 40 airline staff are presently in Uganda for a cycling event which aims to raise 100.000 Euros for charity, under the name of ‘Bike for Africa’, including the airline CEO Bernard Gustin.

Brussels Airlines is a member of the Lufthansa ‘family’ and is operating many of the flights to Africa under a code share arrangement with Germany’s national airline, including the route to Entebbe.
