Operations resumed and were back to normal on Sunday morning at Brussels Airlines after a three-day strike by cabin crew and pilots, the airline said.

316 flights were cancelled in total due to the strike, which impacted 40,000 passengers.

The financial impact of this union action remains to be seen according to Brussels Airlines, which expects to have more information in the coming days.

During the three days of the strike, only 217 of the 533 scheduled flights were able to operate.

The majority of the 40,000 affected passengers have been able to leave for their destination thanks to new reservations.

Some left on Sunday and others will depart during the coming week.

The pilots and cabin crew of Brussels Airlines began their strike on Thursday. It ended on Saturday evening.

The social conflict has dragged on since last summer within the company, with staff saying they are unhappy with the high workloads.

A first strike action took place back in December 2021, with a 24-hour strike. Now that tourism is picking up after the coronavirus pandemic, staff say they are exhausted and are asking management for a reduction in their workload.
