Event

Flight disruptions (e.g. delays and cancelations) are possible at Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL) in Charleroi on Wednesday, March 27, due to an ongoing strike by air traffic controllers. Authorities indicate flight operations will be suspended between 08:00-10:00 (local time) due to staff shortages. Further flight delays and cancelations at CRL remain possible over the coming days.

Context

Union leaders and management at CRL reportedly met on March 26 but were unable to come to an agreement to avoid the strike. Air traffic controllers nationwide have staged near-weekly strikes since mid-February to demand promotions, bonuses, and other benefits. The strike has resulted in periodic airspace closures in recent weeks. 

Advice

Individuals flying via Belgian airports, particularly CRL, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm flight reservations prior to departure for the airport, and contact their airline directly for more information.
