7 New Connections for Africa holidays through Codesharing

Brussels Airlines and Lufthansa are expanding their codesharing agreement to extend their services and start offering new long-haul routes and connections to more holiday destinations in Africa.

7 New Connections for Africa holidays through Codesharing


New routes to a wider range of Africa holidays destinations will start being serviced by Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines thanks to an expansion of their codesharing agreement to include many new connections to a range of new holiday destinations across the African continent.

This new codesharing expansion will add new long-haul routes to Africa for both airlines. Effectively it means that from now on, Lufthansa passengers will have a choice of 4 additional Africa holidays destinations and 7 new connections from Brussels.

Brussels Airlines already flies from Brussels to popular Africa holidays resorts in Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Banjul (Gambia), Bujumbura (Burundi), Douala und Yaunde (both Cameroon), Nairobi (for Kenya holidays) and Monrovia (Liberia) which can also be booked via Lufthansa with a Lufthansa flight number. Moreover, Lufthansa passengers will be able to fly to Douala and Yaunde on a codeshare basis with SWISS and to Nairobi with Swiss or Ethiopian Airlines.

Likewise, Brussels Airlines passengers will now be able to fly via Frankfurt to the Lufthansa destinations in Accra (Ghana), Khartoum (Sudan), Johannesburg and, in winter, to Cape Town (both South Africa), under a Brussels Airlines flight number.

The two airlines are thus further expanding their mutual cooperation agreements and opening up their route network to passengers of the respective partner airline to allow for more choice for passengers when deciding where to go during their Africa holidays. Following this latest expansion of codeshare services and including the new Lufthansa destinations Libreville and Port Harcourt, Lufthansa will itself operate flights to 17 holiday destinations and offer flights to a further 14 holiday destinations also on a codeshare basis.

For more information on the new routes for Africa holidays served by these airlines interested customers can visit the Lufthansa website or contact the Lufthansa Call Center, Lufthansa travel agency partners or Lufthansa sales counters at airports. Members of the Lufthansa Miles & More frequent flyer programme will still be able to collect miles on all flights operated by Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines and such miles could then be redeemed towards future flights.
