Air Belgium to Africa – Trends-Tendances on PC

After 20 years of absence, Belgium is once again in direct air contact with South Africa. Air Belgium opened the destination last week in Zaventem. A line that allows other African destinations.

Last Wednesday, at Brucargo and in front of an Airbus A330 Neo, Air Belgium revealed the rest of its adventures. They will be African and multiple.

Last Wednesday, at Brucargo and in front of an Airbus A330 Neo, Air Belgium revealed the rest of its adventures. They will be African and multiple. The Belgian company run by Niky Terzakis has indeed opened a new line: Brussels Airport- Cape Town via Johannesburg, twice a week. The new A330 will make a one-hour stopover in the latter city before finishing its flight in Cape Town and then returning in the other direction. Departures are in the evening for an arrival the next morning. “South Africa has been a destination that has been neglected for a long time, certainly 20 years, underlined Niky Terziakis. It’s a shame because 188 Belgian companies have subsidiaries there, are directly established there or have significant commercial relations there.” Currently, 60,000 passengers would travel to South Africa from Brussels but with a stopover in Frankfurt, Paris, London or Amsterdam. Air Belgium hopes to increase this figure to 80,000. To do this, the company is counting on the partnership it has forged with Airlink, the first South African company since the bankruptcy of South African Airways two years ago. This partnership, which allows Air Belgium to issue tickets for the final destination, offers 36 additional African destinations: 14 in South Africa but also in Tanzania, Namibia, Angola, Madagascar and even… the Congo. To amplify the success of the return flight, Air Belgium is currently in discussion with European players in order to bring European travelers on its African flights and attract South Africans to destinations other than Brussels.
