Brussels Airlines eyes Mumbai market

Brussels Airlines continues to invest in India by launching its sixth new flight to Mumbai and organising Brussels dances with Mumbai event in India. Brussels Airlines, which became a part of the Lufthansa Group in December 2016, had reopened the direct flight route between Brussels Airport and Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on March 30, 2017. This route was shut down after Jet Airways ended its partnership with the airlines last year. After seven successful months of the launch of 5 weekly direct flights to Mumbai, the Belgium national carrier has recently introduced an extra flight owing to the rise in the number of passengers from India.
“Our new service received a warm welcome here in the Indian market and we are very happy with the results. Adding this sixth weekly flight confirms our investment in the Indian market. We are therefore very happy to participate in the Belgian Royal state visit here in Mumbai. With this spectacular event at the iconic gate of India, we are proud to bring the best of Belgium to India and to emphasize on the importance of the economic bonds between our two countries,” said Bernard Gustin, CEO of Brussels Airlines
To increase the seating capacity by 5-10 pc, Brussels Airlines is planning to replace seven of its fleet of 10 Airbus A330s on its long-haul routes in 2018. Currently, Brussels Airlines is the only carrier which connects the Belgium capital of Brussels with India.
