Brussels Airlines Business Class Flights to Africa for €1,323 from Amsterdam

brussels airlines business

Star Alliance member Brussels Airlines offers business class flights from Amsterdam to African cities starting at just €1,323 to Banjul.

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 center or airport costs more for most itineraries.

These flights can be found from February onward with blackout dates for summer vacations. Once you’ve selected your preferred route and dates, we will forward you to Lufthansa’s 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.

Search & Book

Brussels Airlines didn’t set an expiration date, meaning it can be gone anytime. There is a minimum stay of 8 nights and the availability is high from February onward. Google Flights shows inaccurate flight times and prices. To book, you should use Brussels Airlines’ website.

    Brussels airlines provides one of the worst business class services I have seen ever, both short/long haul and to make things worse you do not earn a single point on their flights even in business class, only a few points on the European legs pre/post.
    My worst experience ever and also a message to Star Alliance: how can you allow business passengers to earn no single point at all on an intercontinental flight?

      I can’t agree with that at all. I fly intercontinental routes in business class several times a year and can only say that, in my opinion, Brussels is one of the better airlines in this class. My last flight from Brussels to Kigali in May 2023 was an excellent flight in every way, both from the soft product and the hard product…
