Brussels Airlines means business with new flight from Bristol connecting the South West with Africa and 50 Euro cities
Fourteen destinations in Africa, along with 50 European cities, are now within reach of business travellers across the South West and Wales thanks to Brussels Airlines’ announcement of a third daily flight linking Bristol to the Belgian capital. The airline already operates a twice-daily service, but the third frequency announced today (11 December) opens up convenient connections across two continents for business and leisure passengers, as well as enhancing inbound access for overseas visitors. From 10 January, the Brussels Airlines service will be operated on behalf of Brussels Airlines by bmi regional as part of a ‘wet lease contract’ signed by both airlines, with crews based at Bristol International for the first time. Flight codes for both airlines - as well as Star Alliance partner, Lufthansa – will be available on the service. Brussels Airlines joined the Star Alliance earlier this week, following fellow Bristol-based carrier, Continental Airlines, which joined in October. Passengers of both airlines now have access to over 900 destinations worldwide through the world’s largest airline alliance. Brussels Airlines is an Africa specialist, with 46 flights per week to destinations including Nairobi, Kinshasa, Kenya, Entebbe, Dakar, Freetown and Abidjan. As well as a dedicated business class, the airline offers an economy class designed to give business travellers flexibility. B.flex economy+ is a fully flexible fare, which includes flight changes, refunds and fast-lane access. A b.light economy leisure fare is also available.
