The Gambia remains an essential part of Brussels Airlines’ African route network. It was the first African station Brussels Airlines served after the Coronavirus lockdown and the grounding of its flights for 12 weeks between March and June. Since June 22nd, Brussels Airlines restarted the route and was herewith the first airline to offer a weekly flight again out of Banjul, demonstrating the importance of the country.

As of October 25th, Brussels Airlines plans to increase her flight schedule between Banjul and Brussels, to two flights per week, on Mondays and Fridays, to respond to the slowly but surely growing market demand.

Brussels Airlines has signed the EASA charter for safe flying under pandemic conditions, which means that the airline adheres to the strictest health safety regulations in aviation worldwide, making it one of the safest ways to travel. Among its safety precautions are the obligatory wearing of a mouth- and nose covering mask during the flight, the intensified disinfection and cleaning of its aircraft, and the modified service on board to limit physical contact and to maximize hygiene. On top, all of its aircraft are equipped with HEPA filters, which filter the air in the aircraft cabin every three minutes, limiting the risk of contamination by providing operating room-quality air onboard.

Before the Coronavirus pandemic, Brussels Airlines offered 4 to 5 flights per week between Banjul and Brussels, flying over 63,000 passengers a year between The Gambia and Belgium or beyond. The airline has restarted the major part of its African network and intends to continuously increase its offer again, in line with market demand and travel restrictions.
