      Overview of Brussels Airlines

      The largest airline in Belgium is Brussels Airlines, which serves as the nation's flag carrier. Brussels Airlines was established on November 7, 2006, as a result of the merger between SN Brussels Airlines and Virgin Express. Lufthansa presently owns a portion of it. Its first flight took off on March 25, 2007. Brussels Airlines flies to roughly 84 locations in more than 30 countries. 

      Brussels Airlines joined the Lufthansa Miles & More frequent flyer programme as a fully integrated partner on October 25, 2009. In the same year, the airline also joined the Star Alliance. The well-trusted Brussels Airlines is an International Air Transport Association (IATA) member and provides flights with high service quality at a reasonable price.

      Brussels Airlines Baggage Allowance Policy

      According to Brussels Airlines' baggage policy, hand luggage will be determined by the class of passenger selected. Passengers in Economy and Premium Economy Class will be allowed to bring one piece of hand baggage and one personal accessory, with a total weight limit of 8 kg (17 lbs). Passengers in Business Class can bring two pieces of hand baggage and one personal accessory weighing no more than 16 kilograms (35 lbs).

      The maximum dimensions of hand luggage, including wheels and handles, are 55 x 40 x 23 cm (21.6 x 15.7 x 9 in). Hand baggage must be stowed in overhead bins or beneath the seat in front of the traveller.

      The measurement restriction for personal items is 40 cm x 30 cm x 10 cm (15.7 x 11.8 x 3.9 in), with wheels and handles included. This might be a camera bag, briefcase, laptop cover, or handbag.

      Personal items should be stored in the overhead bins to avoid interfering with operations and safety, especially when the passengers are seated in the emergency exit row. Personal accessories should be used to store valuable stuff such as travel documents or medications.

      Hand luggage will be inspected at the check-in counter; if the weight and size limitations are exceeded, a fee will apply. You will be denied boarding if you refuse to pay this surcharge.

      The amount and weight of free checked luggage on Brussels Airlines flights vary by route and booking class, which you can discover on your e-ticket.

      The maximum overall dimensions for checked luggage, including bags, wheels, and handles, are 158 cm (62.2 in). The luggage weight must range from 23 to 32 kilograms / 50 to 70 pounds (depending on class).

      If your luggage exceeds the weight restriction, you will be charged or denied transport. Plus, there is a limit of 5 pieces of checked baggage per person, including free baggage and additional purchases. If you want to buy additional checked luggage, please contact their Service Centre.

      Passengers on Brussels Airlines flights do not need to bother about checked luggage at the transit point. The airline will check the luggage through the aircraft automatically, and travellers just need to pick up their bags at the last stop.

      However, on a journey operated by a partner airline, travellers must retrieve their checked luggage at the airport before continuing onto their next aeroplane.

      As a general rule, each piece of checked luggage cannot weigh more than 32 kg (70 lbs). Brussels Airlines will not accept checked luggage weighing more than 32 kg (70 lbs) and will have to send it as freight.

      If you are carrying overweight/oversized or overweight baggage, you will have to, of course, pay an extra baggage cost. Each ticket class has a distinct excess baggage cost.

      You should refer to the airline's baggage calculator for more information and purchase luggage ahead of time through the airline ticket agent.

      FAQs about Brussels Airlines Airlines Baggage Allowance

      The TSA in the United States and the EASA in Europe set the rules for carry-on liquids. Brussels Airlines does not have its own Fluid Specific Policy; instead, they strictly execute the TSA's laws and procedures. The following are some fundamental guidelines:

      • Liquid and gel-like material must be stored in 100 ml max containers (with a clear maximum capacity label).
      • Each container must be put in a plastic bag (transparent, resealable, maximum capacity 1 litre). Each person can carry a maximum of one such bag. You must present the bag to the inspector separately.

      Brussels Airlines allows passengers to transport pets and this is good news for many travellers. Pet regulations are also straightforward, as Brussels Airlines allows small dogs and cats to fly in both cabins and cargo.

      Small pets, such as dogs and cats weighing less than 8 kg (18 lbs), will be permitted in the cabin for a small fee. Disabled assistance animals, such as supported dogs, are accepted free of charge, with no weight or size restrictions. However, they must be trained animals.

      Pets must be at least 15 weeks old, they must be healthy and have sufficient vaccines to prevent disease. If your pet meets that criteria, it will be transported in the passenger cabin or the hold. Rodents, rabbits, fish, birds, large domestic animals (> 8kg / 18lbs), and wild animals are not permitted in the cabin. 

      There are still some dog and cat breeds that will be restricted and not permitted on the plane; it is best to consult with the airline in advance for specific advice.
