A surprise “work-to-rule” strike launched by Belgian customs agents at Brussels-Zaventem International Airport (BRU) on Wednesday, October 17, is expected to continue until at least Friday and potentially into the weekend. The strike has led to significant processing delays at border controls, with agents systematically checking all passengers and more thoroughly checking baggage. Delays impacting arriving flights are also possible.
On Wednesday, the strike was only affecting arriving passengers and similar disruptions are expected in the coming days.
Travelers are advised to confirm the status of their flights prior to departure for the airport and allow for extra wait times.
