Brussels Airlines celebrates its 15th anniversary on the African continent

This summer marks the fifteenth anniversary of the first Brussels Airlines flight to Kinshasa. Very soon after the creation of the airline, Brussels Airlines already started its African network, thus continuing the long presence of Belgian aviation on the continent.

 

In 2002, the African network consisted of 13 destinations which were opened during the course of the spring and summer: Kinshasa, Dakar, Banjul, Conakry, Monrovia, Douala, Yaoundé, Kigali, Entebbe, Nairobi, Abidjan, Luanda and Freetown. These destinations were served with 3 long haul aircraft, operating 38 flights per week.

 

Fifteen years later, Brussels Airlines’ African offer consists of 82 per week to 17 destinations. Now operated with 7 aircraft, the African flight program was extended to Bujumbura, Cotonou, Accra and Ouagadougou. On top of the new destinations, the number of flights to existing destinations was increased.
