(elbcradio.com/Sept. 15, 2015)-Brussels Airlines says it has made new interventions in its operations in Liberia.

Brussels Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Bernard Gustin, said the interventions include increase in the number of flights to Liberia as the airlines will now fly four, instead of the previous two flights, weekly.

As part of the interventions, Mr. Gustin said Monrovia will be used as base for the Airlines crew and there will be a stop-over in Freetown, en route to Monrovia, as well as direct flight from Monrovia to Brussels.

He noted that the decisions, including the removal of Liberia from its Travel Advisory List, were taken last week by the Belgium authorities, based on Liberia’s “Ebola free status.”

An Executive Mansion release said the Brussels Airlines’ CEO spoke Wednesday, September 9, 2015 when he paid a courtesy call on President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf at her Foreign Ministry office in Monrovia.

Speaking during the meeting, President Johnson-Sirleaf thanked Brussels Airlines CEO and the entire management team for the new interventions and for standing firmly by Liberia during the entire Ebola crisis.

She said: “Brussels Airlines has been a real friend to Liberia.”

“When Ebola surfaced in Liberia, Brussels Airlines did not suspend flights to the country. The Airlines kept the country connected to the outside world,” The Liberian Leader added.
