Brussels Airlines has been forced to cancel nearly all of its scheduled flights this Wednesday (February 13) due to a national strike in Belgium.

The carrier had initially reduced its flight operations over the strike period, but has now announced plans to “cancel its remaining flight programme”.

The exceptions will be the following flights from Africa and North America, which are scheduled to depart on February 13 but with an arrival at Brussels Airport of February 14:

  • SN1278 Lomé – Accra
  • SN1278 Accra – Brussels
  • SN1482 Toronto – Brussels
  • SN1465 Kigali – Entebbe
  • SN1465 Entebbe – Brussels
  • SN1202 Dakar – Brussels
  • SN1300 Cotonou – Abidjan
  • SN1300 Abidjan – Brussels
  • SN1224 Conakry – Banjul
  • SN1224 Banjul – Brussels
  • SN1372 Yaoundé – Douala
  • SN1372 Douala – Brussels

In a statement Brussels Airlines said that “With the proactive cancellation of its flight programme of February 13, Brussels Airlines offers its guests the possibility to adapt their travel plans in advance and herewith minimizes the level of disruption and discomfort generated by the national strike as much as possible”.
