As from March 2017, Brussels Airlines will set sail for a new continent, as we will operate 5 flights a week to Mumbai. This new route significantly reinforces our Brussels hub, in close cooperation with Star Alliance partner Air India.
With 5 weekly direct flights to Mumbai’s airport Chhatrapati Shivaji. Situated on the West Coast, Mumbai is the state capital of Maharashtra and, with its 20 million inhabitants, is ranked in the top 10 of the world’s largest megacities. The city is home to all of India’s big financial institutions and corporations. Furthermore it is the maritime hub of the country, the stronghold of the famous Bollywood film industry and the heart of many other economic sectors (diamonds, pharmaceuticals, IT,...).
India is an important economic partner for Belgium and has a large leisure potential at the same time.
It will be the first time that the Belgian airline lands on the Asian continent and it reinforces even more its hub in Brussels, in close cooperation with Star Alliance partner Air India.
Thanks to a collaboration with Star Alliance partner Air India, our guests can connect to other Indian cities and regions. The Mumbai-Brussels flight schedule will allow connections to many European, African and American destinations in the Brussels Airlines network.
