Brussels Airlines adds Entebbe to schedule


According to eTurboNews, Brussels Airlines will offer non-stop flights between Brussels (Belguim) and Entebbe (Uganda) when its new winter schedule commences on 26 October.

Operating every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, the previous stop in Kigali (Rwanda) will be cut out, saving passengers a good one-and-a-half hours on the inbound flight to Entebbe. However, the airline has added the option of joining one of the two flights out of Kigali, which will also operate non-stop on Sundays and Wednesdays from 26 October, made possible through a codeshare with RwandAir.

Ugandan passengers will have at least five flights to Brussels every week.

Brussels Airlines will pass over the connection to Nairobi (Kenya) to senior partner Lufthansa, after decades of uninterrupted service.
