Brussels Airlines has averted strike action by its cabin crew after resolving a dispute over working conditions.

The Belgian carrier, part-owned by Lufthansa, reached agreement with staff on 14 points, including rest time after long-haul flights and overtime. It says it will release the full terms of the agreement, which affects 1,200 employees, in the coming days.

Unions had been disputing measures implemented under the airline’s "Beyond" restructuring plan, implemented last year with a target of €100 million ($135 million) in savings.
