    Brussels Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation

    In the event of any Brussels Airlines flight cancellation, Europe's air passenger rights laws are clear: Brussels Airlines must offer you alternative transport to your destination, or a refund if that's what you'd prefer.

    In addition, if you were told about the cancellation less than 14 days before you were due to depart you may also be able to claim up to $700 per person in compensation.

    Generally speaking, when Brussels Airlines cancels flights, they'll attempt to rebook passengers straight away onto another flight at no additional charge. You can request further changes if the alternative flight doesn’t work for you, or if you no longer wish to travel that route.

    If Brussels Airlines can book you onto a new flight that lands at a similar time to your original they won't have to pay you compensation. This is fair, as you'll get to your destination with minimum disruption to your plans. However in a lot of cases, passengers whose flights are canceled at the last minute have valid claims to Brussels Airlines canceled flight compensation.

    That's unless the cancellation was caused by an event Brussels Airlines can't be expected to control — something like bad weather conditions, or an incident at the airport. These events are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.
