Brussels Airlines is forced to cancel flights on 20 June 2022 due to national industrial strike

Due to an announced national industrial strike in Belgium on 20 June 2022, Lufthansa Group flights to and from Belgium will be disrupted. 

On Sunday evening 19 June around 8.00pm, Brussels Airport decided that no passenger flights will be allowed to depart from Brussels Airport on Monday, 20 June 2022. This is a consequence of the national manifestation and strike of a large part of the security staff of G4S.

Brussels Airlines already cancelled more than half of its flights for 20 June and has now been forced to cancel its remaining flight programme, with the exception of certain flights with transfer passengers for whom security screening is not required. This concerns eight flights on which only passengers who are continuing their journey to another destination via Brussels Airport will be accepted.

The airline will proactively inform passengers for whom it has contact information on the status of their flight via e-mail. In order to enable the Lufthansa Group airlines to inform your customers in case of irregularities as early as possible by e-mail, please always enter the customer contact details using the “SSR CTC” format in the PNR.

Lufthansa Group rules for rebooking/reissue/refund for cancelled flights

Customers affected by a flight cancellation can rebook once free of charge or have their ticket refunded. You are welcome to make rebookings/reissues/refunds for cancelled flights on Austrian Airlines/Brussels Airlines/Lufthansa/SWISS tickets yourself in accordance with the Schedule Change/Irregularity Policy for Travel Agents (OS/SN/LH/LX).

Please note: The Schedule Change/Irregularity Policy only applies to flights which have already been cancelled.

Brussels Airlines regrets the inconveniences caused and will do their utmost to keep the effects of the strike to a minimum.
