Due to a day of industrial action across various stakeholders operating at Brussels Airport as part of a wider national strike in Belgium, Brussels Airlines expects major disruptions in its flight program of next Wednesday, February 13th.
Last week, the airline already cancelled 28 flights out of a total of 222 flights originally planned for February 13th and re-accommodated its passengers on other flights.
With the information available today about the likely scale of the national strike, Brussels Airlines has decided to reduce its offer by an additional 122 flights.
In total, the airline cancels 68% of its flights originally planned that day, unfortunately 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.
Only the following flights will be operated on Wednesday:
SN1278 Lomé – Accra – Brussels
SN1482 Toronto – Brussels
SN1465 Kigali – Entebbe – Brussels
SN1202 Dakar – Brussels
SN1300 Cotonou – Abidjan – Brussels
SN1224 Conakry – Banjul – Brussels
SN1372 Yaoundé – Douala – Brussels
“The airline offers in advance alternative travel solutions. Passengers with a canceled flight who don’t wish to travel anymore can request a full refund of their ticket,” the airline said in a statement.
“Brussels Airlines apologizes for the inconveniences that are caused by external factors entirely beyond its control.”
