Sabena: Brussels-Niamey, 1968
Sabena was very dedicated to Africa, as its successor, Brussels Airlines, is today. However, a few routes did not survive as long in Sabena's network, or were not carried on by Brussels Airlines. This route is one such example, to Niger on what appears to be a B727, which most surely would have made an intermediate stop somewhere in North Africa, such as Tunis. Air France is the only airline to connect Niger to Europe today.
