Direct flights between Brussels Airport and Mumbai in 2017
As from March 2017 Brussels Airlines will set sail for Mumbai. The Indian metropolis will be connected to Brussels Airport 5 times a week. The Belgian airline will, for the first time, land on the Asian continent and further strengthen its hub in Brussels in close cooperation with Star Alliance partner Air India.
Air connectivity between Belgium and India has been absent since last March.
Brussels Airlines will change this from March 2017 with 5 direct flights to Mumbai’s modern Chhatrapati Shivaji airport.
Situated on the West Coast, Mumbai is the state capital of Maharashtra and, with its 20 million inhabitants, is ranked in the top 10 of the world’s largest megacities. The city, that bore the name Bombay until 1995, is home to all of India’s big financial institutions and corporations. Furthermore it is the maritime hub of the country, the stronghold of the famous Bollywood film industry and the heart of many other economic sectors (diamonds, pharmaceuticals, IT,...). India is an important economic partner for Belgium and has a large leisure potential at the same time.
Connectivity to rest of India, Europe, US, Canada and Africa
Thanks to collaboration with Star Alliance partner Air India, Brussels Airlines passengers will be able to connect seamlessly on domestic flights to other Indian cities and regions. The Mumbai-Brussels flight schedule will allow connections to many European, African and American destinations in the Brussels Airlines network.
To operate the Mumbai route, Brussels Airlines is expanding its fleet with a tenth Airbus A330 having a Business Class and an Economy Class and the recently introduced Economy Privilege.
Ticket sales will start in September. The final flight schedule will also be published at that time.
