Since end of March, Brussels Airlines connects Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Airport to Brussels Airport five times a week with a direct flight. Bernard Gustin, CEO, Brussels Airlines, and a delegation of Belgian companies led by Secretary of State for Foreign Trade Pieter De Crem, underlined the importance of the route and the relations between India and Belgium. There was a high demand from various industries (pharmaceutical, diamond, maritime, industry, amongst others), from leisure travelers and cargo forwarders to reinstate a direct service. Brussels Airlines now offers a smooth link to the European Capital five times a week. “The new direct will make that exceptional bond and trade partnership even stronger,” said, Pieter De Crem, Secretary of State for Foreign Trade.
