Brussels Airlines is adding a new route between Belgium and Mumbai, India which will commence from March next year.
The Belgian carrier confirmed that it would begin a five times weekly Brussels-Mumbai service which will be served by an Airbus A330 aircraft configured with Economy, Economy Privilege and Business class cabins.
Lars Redeligx, Brussels Airlines chief commercial officer, commented: “The demand for direct flights for passengers as well as for cargo is high.
“With more than 50,000 passengers per year, Mumbai is the third most important intercontinental destination from Belgium.
“Furthermore, with this new route we can offer our guests smooth connections between Mumbai and the rest of Europe via Brussels,” he added.
Tickets are expected to go on sale in September.
