First Non-Stop Brussels Airlines Flight Lands in Nairobi

The first Brussels Airlines direct and non-stop flight from Brussels to Nairobi has landed in Kenya. This marks a further expansion for the Belgian national carrier into sub-saharan Africa with flights to a very sought after destination for European travellers.

Brussels Airlines Enhancing The Existing Nairobi Service

Although in the carrier’s announcement it was treated for many aspects as an inaugural flight, it isn’t technically. The belgian carrier already operated flights to the Kenyan capital albeit not all that frequently and not with a non-stop service. Previous flights were direct but had made a short stop in Kigali before travelling onwards to Kenya.

The new service, Brussels Airlines flight SN481, on the other hand makes no intermediate stops therefore cutting down significantly travel times. This new flight will operate 4 times weekly, integrating the standing SN491 flight via Kigali. Therefore the combination of these two flights will allow Brussels Airlines to offer flights 6 times per week. With Tuesdays being the unserved day of the week.

A Continuing Focus on Africa With 18 Active Routes

There is no doubt that Brussels Airlines is the Africa focused airline of the Lufthansa Group. The Belgian carrier boasts the largest number of sub-saharan African destinations of the whole LH airline group. Nairobi is only the latest addition to a very long list of destinations. Surely Brussels to Nairobi flight SN481 will be particularly attractive for holiday makers in the northern regions of Europe looking to enjoy the sights of Kenya. This flight as most of Brussels Airlines’ long haul ones will be served by an Airbus A330.
