Brussels Airport advises passengers to rebook flights on June 20

Brussels Airport advises travellers with a flight departing on Monday, June 20 to reschedule it for another date. That day, a national union demonstration will take place in Brussels and G4S security staff is planning a strike, according to a press release of the airport operator.

Airlines are cancelling or rescheduling a considerable number of flights to avoid long queues at the security screening, it says. Brussels Airlines, the main carrier at the national airport, says the call does not apply to its passengers. However, the airline will cancel more than half of its flights on June 20.

Brussels Airlines will inform all concerned passengers. According to the airline, this has already been done for passengers travelling within Europe. Intercontinental passengers will be informed about the status of their flight by Thursday. 

Passengers who do leave on June 20 are advised by the airport to travel only with hand luggage. In order to check what time they should come to the airport, a tool on the airport's website is available. 

Trade unions are organising a national demonstration for more purchasing power in Brussels. Transport companies De Lijn and MIVB had already warned of serious disruption on that day.
