Priority Lane terms and conditions



General Terms and Conditions of Membership and Use



These General Terms and Conditions apply to all customers of Brussels South Charleroi Airport, who wish to use the benefits of the Lounge and/or the Priority Lane.


Brussels South Charleroi Airport reserves the right to alter these General Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice, or to cancel the programme if it no longer fits with its strategy.


These General Terms and Conditions are available on the website and are posted in the lounge. They take precedence over any other document.


1.         Presentation of the Lounge and Priority Lane concept


1. a. Lounge


The Lounge is located in the airside section of the airport (after passage through security control) and is only accessible to holders of an admission ticket.


It is accessible during airport opening hours by means of an access code issued when the service is purchased. The Lounge is not staffed by BSCA and/or airline staff.


The following services are available:

-         Drinks (soft & red/white wine);

-         Snacks;

-         Wi-Fi;

-         Newspapers and magazines;

-         Use of a computer with internet access;

-         Television screen (no option to change channels).


1. b. Priority Lane


The Priority Lane is an option enabling holders to pass through security control quickly and calmly via a separate security lane from those used by other passengers.

The Priority Lane is different from the “fast track” products offered by airlines which give priority in aircraft boarding.


2.    How to use the Lounge and/or Priority Lane


Tickets to use the Lounge and/or Priority Lane are sold in accordance with the following terms and conditions:


·         One ticket is required per person except for infants under the age of 2 accompanied by an adult ticket holder.


·         Access to the Lounge and/or Priority Lane is only available in conjunction with a boarding pass or “Check-in Voucher”.


·         It entitles the holder to use the safety lanes exclusively for Priority Lane customers but:

-       does not, under any circumstances, guarantee the absence of a queue at security control;

-       does not exempt the holder from compliance with all security procedures;

-       does not exempt the holder from compliance with the general terms and conditions of the airline with which he is travelling.


·         Once a reservation for the Lounge and/or Priority Lane has been confirmed, it can no longer be changed or cancelled by the customer. 

·         BSCA reserves the right to close the Lounge (or offer a reduced service) at any time, without prior notice, for reasons of security, safety, default by a service provider or reasons beyond its control. No refund may be claimed in such circumstances.


·         As access to the lounge is limited to a maximum of 15 people, BSCA reserves the right to refuse access to additional voucher holders.


·         BSCA reserves the right to close the Priority Lane at any time, without prior notice, for reasons of security. No refund may be claimed in such circumstances.


·         BSCA accepts no liability for delays suffered by the holder of an access voucher for the Lounge and/or Priority Lane, as a result of failure by him to comply with the security or police regulations applicable within the airport, or in cases of force majeure.


3.              Obligations incumbent on customers


All customers purchasing access to the Lounge will be assigned a voucher with a number exclusive to them and not transferrable.


BSCA reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone holding a pass for the lounge whose dress or behaviour are deemed inappropriate, without the customer being entitled to claim any form of refund.


BSCA reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone holding a pass for one person who has provided access to the Lounge to a third party without a voucher.


Drinks and food provided to access pass holders must be consumed in the lounge and within reasonable limits.


It is strictly forbidden to use the internet access provided to visit sites of a sexual nature, contrary to common decency or inciting hatred or racial discrimination.


The lounge is open strictly in line with airport opening hours (4.30 a.m. – 11.30 p.m.). It may not in any circumstances be used as place to sleep.


The lounge is cleaned once a day and users are therefore requested to dispose of their rubbish in the area provided before leaving the lounge.


4.              Miscellaneous


BSCA accepts no liability in respect of late, lost or misdirected emails.


5.              Period of validity of the voucher


The customer is free to choose the date and time when he goes through security using the Priority Lane.

Access to the Lounge, however, is only available on the date specified by the customer and during opening hours.


6.              Claims


All requests for information or further details and any claims must be addressed to BSCA’s non-Aviation commercial department.
