Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines Expand Codesharing to Africa

Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines are expanding their codesharing services on long-haul routes to Africa. Lufthansa passengers will now have a choice of four additional destinations and seven new connections from Brussels, and will be able to fly via Brussels to Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Banjul (Gambia), Bujumbura (Burundi), Nairobi (Kenya), Monrovia (Liberia) Douala and Yaoundé (both Cameroon), which can also be booked via Lufthansa with a Lufthansa flight number. Moreover, Lufthansa passengers can fly to Douala and Yaoundé on a codeshare basis with SWISS and to Nairobi with Swiss or Ethiopian Airlines.

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

The two airlines are thus further expanding their cooperation and opening up their route network to passengers of the respective partner airline. Following this latest expansion of codeshare services and including the new Lufthansa destinations Libreville and Port Harcourt, Lufthansa will itself operate flights to 17 destinations and offer flights to a further 14 destinations on a codeshare basis.
