Brussels Airlines cancels its flight programme till Monday 12h00
Sunday 18, April 2010
Given that no significant weather improvement is expected, Brussels Airlines is forced to cancel all its flights until Monday April 19th, 2010 1200 local time (10:00 GMT). This decision will allow us to be better prepared to restart our activities once the European airspace reopens. Brussels Airlines asks its passengers not to go to the airports.
The Belgian and European airspace remains contaminated with volcanic ashes. According to the latest weather forecast information (weak wind, dry weather conditions) no significant improvement is expected. A new evaluation and communication will follow Monday morning. All passengers have the option to change their travel date free of charge (subject to seat availability on flights) or ask for a ticket refund. More info via the website www.brusselsairlines.com Brussels Airlines is doing its utmost to assist its passengers and to start its operations in the best possible way once the flight operations can resume.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
