Brussels Airlines allows less hand baggage


Those flying with Economy Airlines in Brussels Class will soon be able to carry less hand baggage. The airline reduces the maximum permitted weight to 8 kilograms with a small personal item. Currently, there is a limit of 12 kilograms for one piece of hand luggage and a personal item.

From 18 August, Brussels Airlines will introduce new travel fares for short and medium-haul flights from 1 September. The three Economy fares are being reformed and the current Business Class becomes two alternatives. The airline does lower the hand luggage limit in Economy Class on all flights, including long-haul flights.

With the reform, Brussels Airlines is actually taking over the rates of the “Network Airlines” from parent group Lufthansa. These are the companies that represent the higher-value segment within the group. In addition to Lufthansa itself, it concerns Austrian Airlines and Swiss. This should provide customers with a “consistent travel experience” across the different Lufthansa brands.

A Brussels Airlines spokesperson cannot say anything about the effect of the fare changes on prices on Wednesday. “It is about more adjusted rates that respond better to the wishes of the customer,” she emphasizes. “Passengers get more choice and flexibility for what they buy with their tickets.”
