Brussels Airlines strike leads to 316 cancellations: impact on 40,000 passengers | interior

At Brussels Airlines, activities will return to normal on Sunday, after resuming after a three-day strike. He learned this from Mike Andres, a spokeswoman for Brussels Airlines. A total of 316 flights were canceled due to the strike, affecting about 40,000 passengers. The financial impact of the strike is not yet clear.

During the three-day strike, 217 of the 533 scheduled flights on Brussels Airlines, or about 40 per cent of the total, could be operated. The majority of the 40,000 affected passengers were still able to leave for their destinations thanks to the rebookings.

A small number of affected passengers will depart on Sunday, so flights will be very full on Sunday. This will continue to be the case in the coming days.

Pilots and cabin crew at Brussels Airlines began their strike on Thursday, which ended on Saturday night. Social conflict has continued at Brussels Airlines since last summer, with employees suffering from a heavy workload.

The first action was taken in December, with a 24-hour strike. Now that tourism is picking up again after Corona, employees have reported that they are exhausted and are asking for a lightening of their workload. For its part, Brussels Airlines said it was open to resuming negotiations with unions.

The spokeswoman said the exact financial impact of the strike on the airline was not yet known. This will become clear in the coming days and weeks.
