Africa Flights Increased

Brussels Airlines is planning to increase its flights to and from five African destinations (Yaoundé and Douala, Abidjan, Nairobi, Bujumbura and Kinshasa) from April 2012.
Early next year, the carrier is also launching an in-flight product with lie-flat business seats, comfortable economy seats and the latest entertainment technology.
Flights to Yaoundé, Cameroon, will increase from two to six per week, while the country’s Douala is due to have a daily link to Brussels instead of the current three weekly flights.  Similarly, a daily service will now be offered from Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
The addition of a long-haul aircraft to Brussels Airlines’ fleet has allowed flights to Kinshasa to operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  Return flights to Brussels will be available six times a week.
Nairobi, Kenya, and Bujumbara, Burundi, will also receive a fourth and third weekly flight respectively.
Brussels Airlines has been reinforcing its presence on the African continent since 2011, when it launched services to Bamako, Marrakech and Agadir.
