Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines launch Joint Flights to Africa

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 20 July 2009

Lufthansa and Brussels are now offering codeshare flights on selected long-haul routes as part of their agreement to expand their cooperation and open up their networks to each other's passengers.

The first jointly operated long-haul services are Brussels Airlines flights from Brussels to Entebbe, Uganda and the new Lufthansa connection from Frankfurt to Libreville, Gabon.

Flights on both theses routes can now be booked under the partner's flight number. Lufthansa passengers can thus fly to Entebbe via Brussels under a Lufthansa flight number. Lufthansa does not operate its own flights to this destination in Uganda. Likewise, Brussels Airlines passengers can fly to Libreville, the capital of Gabon, from Brussels via Frankfurt.

Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines will gradually offer more long-haul flights to Africa on a codeshare basis. In the long term, Lufthansa passengers will have a much wider choice of destinations in Africa, as Lufthansa plans to add further codeshare routes with Brussels Airlines to its network.

Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines already operate codeshare flights on all cross-border routes between Germany and Belgium as well as on selected routes in Europe.

Members of both airlines' frequent flyer programmes Miles & More and Privilege can already collect miles on all flights operated by Brussels Airlines and Lufthansa and redeem them for award flights.
