The 24-hour strike of Brussels Airlines flight crew officially ended at 5:00 AM on Tuesday morning.

Staff and unions went on strike for 24 hours to demand better workload management, respect for the well-being of staff, and respect for the collective labour agreements, Belga News Agency reports.

On Monday, half of the 116 scheduled flights were cancelled, including destinations to Geneva, Marseille, Goteborg, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Lyon, Stockholm and Valencia.

"There are still some cancellations on Tuesday, but these are due to the fact that planes could not leave. These are not new cancelled flights," said Brussels Airlines spokeswoman Kim Daenen.

The cold weather and the required de-icing of planes has also led to some delays unrelated to the strike.
