Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines expand codeshare services to Africa
Lufthansa customers can now book codeshare flights with Brussels Airlines to four more destinations in Africa.
For the first time, passengers can thus fly with the Belgian carrier from Berlin-Tegel, Hamburg, Hanover, Frankfurt, Munich, Nuremberg and Stuttgart through Brussels direct to the African capitals Conakry (Guinea), Freetown (Sierra Leone) and Kigali (Rwanda).
Furthermore, Lufthansa can now offer its passengers two codeshare flights with Brussels Airlines to the Angolan capital Luanda in addition to its own twice-weekly service from Frankfurt. Frequencies to Angola are thus being doubled from two to four per week.
Since July 2009, an increasing number of long-haul flights to Africa operated by Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines have also been offered under the partner airline’s flight number. The new codeshare services operated by Brussels Airlines give Lufthansa passengers a choice of three further destinations, which the German carrier does not serve itself. Lufthansa currently operates its own flights to 17 destinations in Africa.
