Star Alliance member Brussels Airlines is selling cheap tickets to several destinations in Africa from various French airports. From Paris, Marseille, Toulouse, and Lyon, you can fly to e.g. Rwanda, Togo, Uganda, Ghana, Senegal, or Cameroon starting at €280.
All these connections include 23 kg of checked baggage. The long-haul routes are always carried out with an Airbus A330 with seats in a 2-4-2 arrangement. In contrast to flights with TAP or Iberia, you will not end up in a narrow-body airplane with little legroom.
All flights to Africa can be rebooked at Brussels Airlines without rebooking fees. You then have to pay the difference between the old and the new flight price.
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
These prices are with departure from Paris:
You’ll find similar prices with departure from Lyon, Marseille or Nice for most of the destinations.
You can simply use the following form to book the tickets. Simply select the departure airport, destination, and travel dates. We will then redirect you to booking directly on BrusselsAirlines.com with one click. Please note that the fare is only valid for flights up to December 15, 2022.
The flights have a stopover in Brussels. Airbus A330s are used on long-haul routes. The seat separation is roughly 81 cm there.

The airline issues these tickets until May 17, 2022 for travel until December 15. You need to stay five nights or spend the Saturday night at your destination, but no more than three months. While there is little availability in the Summer, prices in autumn are quite good.
You can search for the flights on Google Flights (instructions). Tickets are then available directly on Brussels Airlines’ website. There, the tickets are even cheaper than with third-party providers.
Your tickets are issued in booking class K. To give you an example, flights from Paris to Lomé (and back) would get you the following mileage credits:
- 3,254 Award Miles + 652 PQP on United MileagePlus
- 1,626 Miles on Etihad Guest
- 1,626 Miles on Asiana Club
- 772 Award Miles + 1,798 Tier Miles on Miles&More
Feel free to calculate the number of miles that you’d get for your individual routing:
