Brussels Airlines reinforces presence in West Africa


Starting 26 October Brussels Airlines will operate flights to Accra, the capital of Ghana, four times weekly. Ghana is one of the fastest-growing African countries, both economically and in terms of tourism. Accra is Brussels Airlines’ 16th destination in West Africa.

A flourishing economy thanks to oil and cocoa, a growing touristic potential and a population that is known for its friendliness and hospitality… With Ghana, Brussels Airlines adds one of the most important up and coming African countries to its network. The GDP continues to grow steadily, trade relations are booming and the number of foreign visitors and tourists increases year after year.

As from the end of October, Brussels Airlines will fly four times a week to Ghana’s capital, Accra. The flights will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with a morning departure from Brussels and an evening return from Accra. The flight schedule allows for smooth connections to many of Brussels Airlines’ European destinations and the United States, including to the UK, Denmark, Germany, France and New York, via Brussels Airport.

“We are extremely happy to add Ghana to our African network – the country is currently not directly connected to Brussels Airport,” says Brussels Airlines VP Sales Africa Philippe Saeys. “This is good news both for the growing number of passengers that travel to or from Ghana, and for cargo clients. As well as offering comfortable travel options between Accra, Brussels Airport and Europe, this connection will also contribute to the growing trade relations between Belgium and Ghana.”

The direct flights are operated with Airbus A330 aircraft and passengers have the choice between a Business Class product with full flat beds and an Economy Class product with ergonomic seats and on demand in-flight entertainment.
