Brussels Airlines, the Belgian subsidiary of Lufthansa, will operate a connection between Brussels and Nairobi, Kenya from June 2024; this service will have a technical stopover in Kigali, which will extend service to Rwanda to daily flights.
The airline is expanding in its target market of Africa, increasing frequencies for the summer 2024 season. To this end, Brussels Airlines is adding a tenth Airbus A330 to its fleet.
During the summer season, the Brussels-Nairobi route will have a rotation of six flights per week and for the winter, it will have four flights per week. For the winter program, Brussels Airlines also plans to add a direct flight to Dakar and an additional rotation to Banjul/Conakry and Monrovia/Freetown.
Brussels therefore becomes the main hub of the Lufthansa group focused on the African market, bringing the number of destinations served in sub-Saharan Africa to 18.
