Brussels Airlines Adjusts Flight Schedule February 13

Because of national strike in Belgium the airline offers alternative travel solutions or the refund of their ticket

Due to a day of industrial action across Belgium on Feb. 13, Brussels Airlines expects major disruptions in its flight schedule next Wednesday. Last week, the airline had already cancelled 28 flights out of a total of 222 flights originally planned for that day and re-accommodated passengers on other flights.

With the information available today about the likely scale of the national strike, Brussels Airlines has decided to reduce its schedule by additional 122 flights. In total, the airline cancels 68 percent of its flights originally planned that day, impacting 11.288 passengers. This will allow its guests to adapt their travel plans well in advance and hence minimize the level of disruption and discomfort generated by the national strike for them as much as possible.

The airline offers in advance alternative travel solutions. Passengers with a canceled flight can request a full refund of their ticket. Refunds can be requested online on or via the passengers’ travel agency. For rebookings, the airline directs its customers to contact their travel agency or Brussels Airlines via:

•the Brussels Airlines Service Center under +32 2 723 23 62

•Facebook or Twitter
