BRUSSELS AIRLINES LAUNCHES NEW YORK FLIGHTS
Flights leaving East Africa last night on Brussels Airlines will today for the first time be able to connect on a Brussels Airlines flight to New York, aka the Big Apple, as the airline launches its inaugural flights to JFK on the 01st of June.
Long operated in code share with partner Continental, a cooperation which incidentally continues to offer additional choices for Star Alliance passengers, SN will as of today offer travelers from the United States access to one of the most extensive Africa networks from Brussels available to international passengers with a final destination in West and East Africa.
Advertised and marketed for the past few months, East Africans in turn can now reach New York with a short transit stop in Brussels using the airline on both sectors, and they will be delighted to find a new Airbus A330-200 with the latest cabin product and inflight entertainment being used on the route to JFK, offering enhanced comfort while in the air. Brussels Airlines has already announced that their entire fleet of A330 aircraft will be retrofitted with the new seats and features and be available on all services to Africa from about September this year onwards.
For now it is Happy Landings to the inaugural flight and the crew and passengers on board. Visit www.brusselsairlines.com for more information on the range of African destinations and connecting flights into the airlines European network out of Brussels.
