Brussels Airlines continues to extend free rebooking period


(Posted 10th February 2021)


Rebooking fee for Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, Lufthansa and SWISS remains suspended

Since the end of August, all fares of Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines and Eurowings can be rebooked without a rebooking fee.

Originally, this fare offer was valid for (re-)bookings until the end of February 2021.

Now the offer is being extended again: all airline fares, booked until 31st of May included, can be rebooked free of charge as often as desired up to May 31st, 2021. After that date, one more rebooking is possible free of charge.

Lufthansa Group Airlines had already made it possible for its customers to rebook their tickets without a fee last year. The waiver of the rebooking fee applies worldwide for all new bookings in all fares on short, medium and long-haul routes. This enables flexible travel planning for all Lufthansa Group customers.

However, additional costs may arise for rebookings if, for example, the original booking class is no longer available when rebooking to a different date or to a different destination.

Also, rebooking of tickets issued up to and including August 31st, 2020, can now be done until May 31st, 2021 for travel until 31st of December 2021.

Meanwhile is Brussels Airlines again serving Entebbe in Uganda in conjunction with Kigali / Rwanda and Bujumbura / Burundi on alternate traffic days.

Brussels Airlines is Belgium’s national airline, connecting the capital of Europe to more than 70 destinations, of which 15 are located in Africa, the continent that Brussels Airlines carries closest to its heart.

Moreover, Brussels Airlines offers 54 destinations in Europe and 2 in North America. The company employs 3,300 employees and presently operates 38 aircraft.

In view of the global coronavirus pandemic, Brussels Airlines has committed itself to the strictest health safety measures in aviation worldwide, following the recommendations of EASA (European Air Safety Agency). Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Belgian airline operates an adapted flight schedule that is based on market demand and that takes into account the travel restrictions of the different authorities.

Thanks to its no-compromise positioning, Brussels Airlines combines competitive all-flexible fares with the highest service quality. With yearly changing Belgian Star Chefs, its wide offer of Belgian food and drinks and the six Belgian Icons, Brussels Airlines is acting as a real ambassador of its country, bringing the world to Belgium and the best of Belgium to the world.

Creating over 40.000 direct and indirect jobs, Brussels Airlines plays an important role in the Belgian economy and is part of Belgium’s second largest economic engine: its hub at Brussels Airport. In 2019, the airline transported over 10 million passengers to, from and via Brussels Airport.

Brussels Airlines offers cargo capacity on all its flights, commercialized by Lufthansa Cargo. The airline also handles the daily maintenance of its aircraft fleet.

Brussels Airlines is one of the four Lufthansa Group network airlines (Austrian, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa and Swiss) and member of Star Alliance. The company was founded in 2002 and is 100% owned by Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
