Belgian airspace is closed until 16 April 6PM


This decision was taken by the Belgian Civil Aviation Authorities to ensure everyone's safety. All airlines are affected by this decision. Earlier, some airports in the UK and Scandinavia were already closed for the day.



Consequently, Brussels Airlines are forced to cancel all our flights until 16 April 6PM. They advise you not to travel to the airport.


Brussels Airlines offer the passengers booked to travel 15 April or 16 April 2010 the following alternative: a free change of reservation to a later flight/date (same as the original destinations). No penalty applies (even for the most restrictive tickets) and refunds are allowed.


Rebooking your flight can be done at the Brussels Airlines ticketing desk at the airport, our Customer Contact Center (tel. +32 (0)2 723 23 62 or 078 18 88 89) or via your travel agency. Your reservation can not be changed online.


With these measures Brussels Airlines wants to offer a flexible and free alternative to our customers.
