The airline halted its commercial flight schedule on March 21. That’s great news for those of us living in Belgium — and for visitors!

At first, travelers from Brussels will see a significantly reduced schedule. 

First Destinations

Brussels Airlines hasn’t announced the new schedule yet but says it will cater to both the business and leisure market. The range of destinations is expected to include Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Portugal and Spain, among others.

The reduced schedule will be increased gradually in line with the demand for tickets. It also will depend on travel restrictions imposed by various nations as borders begin to open.

Getting Ready

To prepare for the planned restart, Brussels Airlines will follow strict measures to protect both staff and customers. This includes additional aircraft disinfection and the use of mouth masks. Several other measures are being evaluated together with the authorities. You can find more information on
