Brussels Airlines,a new addition to airliners operating in Ghana, would commence flights from Accra to Brussels in July 2010.

There would also be a multitude of connections to over 50 destinations in Europe and more than 900 destinations world wide, through its star alliance partners.

Mr. Bernard Gustin, Chief Executive Officer of Brussels Airline, told journalists on Tuesday at a press briefing in Accra, that the "unrivalled" experience of Brussels Airlines as the leading specialist for flights between Africa and Europe could absolutely be counted upon.

He said with the addition of four new West African destinations, namely Accra, Lome, Cotonou and Ougadougou, Brussels Airlines will serve 18 African destinations from Brussels.

Mr. Frederic Steils, Country Director of Brussels Airlines, said the choice of Accra by the Airline for its operations was due to increased economic activity in the capital.

He said a significant boom in trade and business in Accra, made it an ideal place for the airline to operate from.
