Star Alliance member Brussels Airlines offers business class flights from Amsterdam to African cities starting at just €1,305. You can e.g. reach Banjul at €1,305, Accra at €1,426 and Kigali and Entebbe for under €1,365 but with an overnight stop in Zürich, Frankfurt or Munich.
You will usually have to take a Lufthansa or a SWISS flight and then fly to Brussels. Unfortunately taking a train directly to Brussels Airport from Amsterdam’s city centre or airport costs more for most itineraries.
These flights can be found from November onward. Once you’ve selected your preferred route and dates, we will forward you to Brussels Airlines’ booking site.
You can fly to the following cities:
First, you will fly Lufthansa’s or Swiss’ short-haul business class to Brussels via Zurich, Frankfurt, or Munich (sadly, sometimes leaving you in one of those cities overnight). In Brussels, you will board an Airbus A330 which features lie-flat-seating in alternating 2-1-2 and 1-2-1 patterns up front. Flights to Banjul feature a technical stop in Dakar.
