Frequently Asked Questions

OPC stands for Optional Payment Charge. The charge is optional since there are always alternative forms of payment where this charge will not be applied (e.g. cash, invoice, debit cards).
In 2015 the EU adopted a new directive on payment services (PSD 2), including a regulation on multilateral interchange fees, among whose objectives are the limitation of the fees for transactions based on consumer debit and credit cards. The directive has become applicable in 2018. Consequently Brussels Airlines, together with the other airlines of the Lufthansa Group (Lufthansa, Austrian and Swiss) has aligned the OPC according to this requirement.
From January 2018, Brussels Airlines and the Lufthansa Group Airlines will no longer charge an OPC for payments made with consumer credit cards issued within the European Economic Area (EEA).
Please note that corporate credit cards and consumer credit cards issued outside the EEA will continue to be surcharged as before, except for tickets with Belgium as country of departure.
The OPC corresponds to 1.65% (or 1.40% in Switzerland) of the ticket price and is never more than 25 euros (CHF 30 / GBP 20 / DKK 190 / PLN 110 / HUF 7700 / CZK 680). This means that, no matter the price of your ticket, you’ll never be charged more than 25 euros (CHF 30 / GBP 20 / DKK 190 / PLN 110 / HUF 7700 / CZK 680) per person.
The OPC is applied uniformly to routes and booking classes.
Please note that tickets for infants (under 2 years) are exempt from the OPC, as are Miles & More award tickets.
The OPC is only applied once and is not levied anew on bookings for insurance, seat reservations, extra bags, etc., or on later additional payments for rebookings.
No, the OPC is non-refundable.
