Air traffic controllers in Belgium went on strike on Thursday, May 16, to demand promotions, bonuses, and other benefits. The industrial action will take place between 09:30 and 13:00 (local time). Flight delays and cancelations are anticipated at Belgian airports during and immediately following the strike period. At least 60 flights have already been cancelled as of 09:30. Operations at the capital's Brussels Airport (BRU) are likely to be particularly affected.
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.
