On March 30, Brussels Airlines inaugurated its direct flights between Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji airport and Brussels Aiport and has since seen its results on the route growing more and more. After a positive 7-month period with an average seat load factor of almost 80%, the airline has decided to invest even more in the route, by adding an extra flight on Saturday, bringing the total to 6 flights per week.
As an ambassador of Belgium, Brussels Airlines wants its Indian guests to discover the best of Belgium. That’s why Brussels Airlines proudly participates to the State Visit to the Republic of India of Their Majesties the King and Queen of the Belgians from 8 to 11 November in Mumbai. For the occasion, Brussels Airlines, together with Brussels-Capital Region and its other Belgian partners Brussels Airport, Bal Moderne and Tomorrowland, one of the biggest music festivals in the world, organize “Brussels Dances with Mumbai”, a dance event at The Gateway of India with Bal Moderne and the world famous DJ Lost Frequencies behind the decks. 2000 lucky winners of a Facebook contest were invited by Brussels Airlines to attend the event.
