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. Cote d’Ivoire, the Gambia, Senegal, or Cameroon starting at €319.
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.
These prices are with departure from Paris:
- Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire for €329
- Banjul, Gambia for €359
- Dakar, Senegal for €365
- Douala, Cameroon for €399
Tickets are even cheaper when departing from Toulouse:
- Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire for €319
- Banjul, Gambia for €349
- Dakar, Senegal for €356
- Douala, Cameroon for €389
You’ll find similar prices with departure from Lyon, Marseille or Nice for most of the destinations.
