Liberia is Open for Business, and for those traveling for the presidential Inaugural events in Monrovia, Brussels Airlines is the airline of choice! Over the past few months, Consul General Blandford and the Consul General in N.Y., Mr. Rudolph Sherman, held strategic meetings with Brussels Airlines leadership to discuss how to promote the partnership by offering travel discounts to guests traveling to Liberia including 20% discounted airline tickets on Brussels Airlines operated flights from New York (JFK) and Washington D.C.

"Brussels Airlines and its predecessor, Sabena, have a long history in the wonderful country of Liberia. In 2002, Brussels Airlines was the first airline to resume service to Monrovia at the end of the civil conflict while conditions were still less than secure, a sign of Brussels Airlines confidence in the country and economy," states Bonaiuto. Brussels Airlines also continued flying to Liberia throughout the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak, ensuring vital air bridge and transportation of medical relief. The Liberian Consulate in Georgia will work with the Brussels Airline leadership by leveraging Strategies and Engagement Approaches, providing Marketing and Media Support, and identifying Key Targeted Audiences for maximum impact and results. This will include Trade and Investment Missions, Study Abroad, Faculty and Student Exchange programs and the like.

Brussels Airlines and the Consul Blandford have since collaborated to publish editorials promoting Liberia. One article, entitled 8 Reasons Liberia Should Be at the Top of Your Travel Bucket List, notes that Liberia has reclaimed its position as one of the most promising tourist destinations in Africa after facing years of civil war that tore through its rich history. The West African country has moved on, and definitely merits a top spot in your list of travel destinations to explore. The Honorary Consul General of Liberia in Georgia, U.S.A, Cynthia L. Blandford puts in a good word for the country she represents as she invites the world to the place she calls home.
