Brussels Airlines reconnects Loïc Dablé and Yvonne Nelson with loved ones


If there’s one life lesson we learned from the past pandemic, it’s that being surrounded with good people is simply vital. Whether it’s at home with our loved ones, at work with great colleagues, in school with lovely friends or up 35,000 feet with a helpful and hospitable crew. Good company goes a long way.


The new marketing campaign of Brussels Airlines “Being in good company is vital” features Ivorian/French chef Loïc Dablé and Ghanaian actress and producer Yvonne Nelson. In the commercials, we see both of them paying a tribute to and connecting with a person that changed their life for the better. While they talk about these persons, we follow them until they reach their final destination: the home of the person they love and owe so much to.


View the commercials below:


•           Commercial with Loïc Dablé

•           Commercial with Yvonne Nelson


Brussels Airlines has a long tradition of flying from and to the African continent. The airline has developed a real passion for the continent and offers to 17 destinations in sub-Saharan Africa. And with the other Lufthansa Group carriers, an additional 14 destinations in Africa are covered.




Yours sincerely,
