Travel time and best routes to this city from Europe or the US:

I recommend the Brussels Airlines flight since you therefore will not risk luggage theft in Nairobi. Plus it is the shortest of the three options (Brussels, Addis, or Nairobi). - Aug 8, 2009
There are direct flights from Brussels twice a week that take about 8 hours. Flights from the rest of Europe are through Nairobi or Addis Ababa where there can be a long layover -- it can take up to 24 hours to get to your destination. It takes at least 24 hours to travel between Bujumbura and the U.S. - Oct 30, 2008
