Brussels Airlines is prepared for the winter weekend of 9-10 January

Passengers can change European flights free of charge.

Based upon the latest forecasts, adverse winter weather conditions are expected in several parts of Europe this upcoming weekend. Together with Brussels Airport and the airport handling services, Brussels Airlines has taken all possible measures to limit any inconveniences caused to its passengers. However, there is still a possibility that the planned flight schedule may be disturbed.

Thus, Brussels Airlines has decided to offer its passengers the possibility to change flights to an earlier or later date free of charge. This offer is valid for all flights operated by Brussels Airlines to European destinations that depart on Saturday (09/01/2010) or Sunday (10/01/2010). Passengers who would like to make use of this offer are invited to contact the Brussels Airlines reservation service by phone (0032 2 7232362).

Passengers can rest assured that Brussels Airlines is in permanent dialogue with Brussels Airport, and is monitoring the weather forecast closely.

"We have taken numerous precautionary measures, and additional staff will be dispatched throughout the weekend", says CEO Bernard Gustin. "Unfortunately, we are not able to predict with certainty the impact of the weather on our flight operations, and hence we have already taken the decision today that passengers can change their European flight itineraries at their own convenience."
