Brussels Airlines is currently selling cheap tickets for premium economy flights from London to Bujumbura in Burundi. You can get the trip for €661. The flights are via Brussels. You can also start from Manchester, Birmingham or Edinburgh for similar prices.
For one or the other, the following option should be even more interesting: If you include a night in Brussels on the way there, the flights are available for only €544. This is possible because the British air passenger tax will be significantly reduced as a result of the layover. There is availability for travel from January to October 2023.
Tickets can be changed for a fee of £180 (~€210), however the fare difference will also have to be covered. Cancellations are not permitted in this booking class.
You have to take a PCR test upon entry (which costs €100) and will also need a visa.
You can use the following form to search for the flights. Enter your desired dates and let yourself be forwarded directly to Lufthansa’s website for booking (Lufthansa owns Brussels Airlines). Note that availability varies depending on the departure city:
First, you usually take an Airbus A320 to Brussels, from where you get to your destination in an Airbus A330. The pure flight time is almost 10 hours in each direction.
