On final approach to Brussels Airport

Brussels Airlines announced it will begin new service to Toronto next April. The carrier also said it would expand its flights to Africa, as well as take delivery of two additional Airbus A330 planes in the near future.

Brussels Airlines will codeshare on the new route with Air Canada. The service will come in the wake of Jet Airways discontinuing its Brussels-Toronto route.

Additionally, the carrier plans to expand its service to Africa next year, with additional flights to Kigali, Rwanda and Entebbe, Uganda set to begin in the spring.

Brussels Airlines will also add two Airbus A330 aircraft to its fleet over the next year and a half. The first, scheduled for delivery next spring, will be used on the airline’s new Brussels-Toronto service, while the second will be used on the carrier’s flights to Africa. The aircraft will be Brussels Airlines’ ninth and tenth Airbus A330s to be added to its fleet.

In addition, Brussels Airlines announced it would share its code with United on the airline’s second daily flight between Newark and Brussels, which was announced earlier this week.
