A Brussels Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration OO-SSU performing flight SN-3201 from Brussels (Belgium) to Venice (Italy) with 124 people on board, was climbing out of Brussels' runway 25R when the left hand engine (CFM56) stalled prompting the crew to level off at FL080, shut the engine down and return to Brussels for a safe landing on runway 25R about 45 minutes after departure.

A passenger reported there was a huge bang from the engine, then the aircraft levelled off and returned to Brussels.

The airline initially reported an engine ingested a bird and received damage prompting the shut down of the engine but later amended that inspection of the engine did not reveal evidence of a bird strike. The exact cause of the engine failure is being investigated.

A replacement A319-100 registration OO-SSK reached Venice with a delay of 3 hours.

On Nov 19th 2015 the French BEA reported in their weekly bulletin that the crew heard a loud noise and observed an abrupt yaw of the aircraft while climbing through about FL060 having been cleared to climb to FL240. The crew performed the ECAM actions, declared PAN, entered a hold for 15 minutes and returned to Brussels. Belgium's AIB is investigating the occurrence rated an incident.
