The unions had requested mediation in mid-February in the context of the pilot wage negotiations. But the mediator could only conclude on Wednesday that the positions of unions and management are still too far apart. The procedure was therefore ended with a “non-conciliation report”.

“We will consider in the coming days what we are going to do next,” said Olivier Van Camp of the socialist union. The pilots of Brussels Airlines already went on strike in mid-January. About two out of three flights had to be canceled.

The management says that there is a “substantial envelope” on the table and advocates realism. “The financial situation at Brussels Airlines is better than during the corona crisis, but we have not yet fully recovered,” said spokesperson Nico Cardone. The management continues to ask for solutions around the table, but calls on people not to stick to “unrealistic demands”.

There has been social unrest at Brussels Airlines for some time, not only among the pilots, but also among the stewards and flight attendants and the ground staff.

The airline will announce its 2023 annual results on Thursday.
