Strikes on 8 and 15 December in Brussels may affect Brussels Airlines flights

Social actions in Belgium on 8 and 15 December 2014 may cause flight disruptions.

At this stage Brussels Airlines has no clear indication what will be the exact impact of the social actions announced for 8 and 15 December in various Belgian industries. We monitor the situation closely and we do everything we can to limit the inconvenience for our passengers.

Although we cannot predict the impact on our scheduled flights yet, we offer our guests, booked on a flight on 8 or 15 December, the possibility to rebook to an earlier or later date at no charge.
Conditions for rebooking:

b) The new date of travel must be on/before 19 March 2015.
b) Route changes are not permitted
Rebooking your flight can be done at the Brussels Airlines ticketing desk at the airport, our Customer Contact Centre (tel. +32 (0)2 723 23 62) or via your travel agency.
Your reservation cannot be changed online.
We monitor the situation closely and we will provide updates as soon as more information becomes available. Please keep an eye on this page, as well as our Facebook and Twitter page.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.


  1. André Orban posted this in the forums, very interesting to read and to know in case of an airport strike:

  2. Learning from the experience of previous weeks at CRL and LGG, I think that

    1) the airport will remain open and most flights will be operated (although SN already cancelled some flights preventively)
    2) public transport to the airport will not operate at all
    3) the unions might block the access roads to the airport

    Therefore I’d suggest that you don’t take your own car to the airport, but have someone drive you there (he can always drop you at a blockade 1 or 2 km from the airport).

    I’d also suggest you travel light: baggage handlers might be on strike as well…
