Can anyone tell me if this is actually a direct flight? I have seen conflicting information mentioning train rides to CDG or a short landing in FRA on this route out of BRU. What is the actual situation?

As far as I understood it, the flight has a triangular pattern, meaning it routes:

ADD-CDG-BRU-ADD

or

ADD-BRU-FRA-ADD

depending the day, so you can have a non-stop between BRU and ADD on both segments if you pick the right days of the week.

Is it possible to fly only CDG-BRU or BRU-FRA on ET?

Hi Tony from Johannesburg,

We'll actually be connecting in Addis for flight to JHB for a dream trip to South Africa!

Cheers BRUspotter

That doesn't seem to match current ET schedules. They operate ADD-CDG-BRU 3 times a week and ADD-FRA-BRU 3 times a week. The flights return via the same routing so BRU has no nonstops in either direction.

They don't seem to sell local traffic on those sectors, at least it's not in Amadeus.

Both statements by Viscount724 are correct. Also, worth mentioning that Brussels Airlines places its code on all of ET's flights to BRU, while Lufthansa places its code on the 3 flights into and out of FRA.

It should be interesting to see how things work out once/if demand grows further as a result of the code shares and requires an increase in capacity.

Hi there,

Finally found time to sign up to this site.

Since beginning of July, Ethiopian operates daily to/from BRU:

1.3.56. ADD-CDG / CDG-BRU 2355-0630 / 0730-0825
.2.4..7 ADD-FRA / FRA-BRU 2320-0550 / 0645-0750

1.3.5.. BRU-FRA / FRA-ADD 2055-2225 / 2315-0715
.2.4.67 BRU-CDG / CDG-ADD 2040-2135 / 2235-0650

Flight generally operated by 767, now and then substituted by 757.

As above schedules make clear, the aircraft stays at BRU the whole day.

I am sure that it is a train service between CDG-BRU/BRU-CDG. Can anyone clarify?

It's not a train service. ET flies ADD-CDG-BRU innto BRU and BRU-CDG-ADD

Dkny is correct

Working for the ET representation in BRU, I can give these flight details ex-Europe:

BRU-CDG-ADD v.v. 767
BRU-FRA-ADD v.v. 767
ARN-FCO-ADD v.v. 757
LHR-FCO-ADD v.v. 757

and not originating from Europe, but passing here:

IAD-FCO-ADD v.v. 767

The mentioned aircraft type is the one mainly used, but is sometimes substituted by another (767 by 757, 757 by 737)
