Air traffic controllers in Belgium are slated to strike from 22:00 (local time) on Tuesday, March 12, through 08:00 on Wednesday, March 13, to demand promotions, bonuses, and other benefits. Additionally, Belgian airspace will reportedly be closed from 04:00 to 06:00 on Wednesday due to the strike. Flight delays and cancelations are to be expected at Belgian airports during and immediately following the strike period. Additional strike actions and consequent flight disruptions are possible over the coming days and weeks if the air traffic controllers' demands are not met.
Individuals flying via Belgian airports are advised to monitor developments to the situation, prepare for flight disruptions, confirm flight reservations before departing for the airport, and contact their airline for more information.
