As of 2019, the airline will add three extra flights per week to Banjul, Gambia and will operate three out of the seven weekly frequencies to Dakar, Senegal as a direct flight, without a stop in another African airport. At the same time, the airline ceases its operations to and from Mumbai, but continues to offer its customers smooth travel options via Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich with Lufthansa Group partners Lufthansa and SWISS.
The Mumbai flight capacity will be used to refocus on Africa, the core intercontinental business of Brussels Airlines.
On the short-haul network, Brussels Airlines adds two new destinations, where as from October Kiev, Ukraine will be served four times a week and as of February, 2019 a three-weekly service to Wroclaw, Poland will be launched. Furthermore the airline adds additional frequencies to existing destinations this winter season, including Alicante, Billund, Bordeaux, Faro, Geneva, Lisbon, Malaga and Tel Aviv.
