Air traffic controllers in Belgium are on strike as of Wednesday, March 20, to demand promotions, bonuses, and other benefits. Air traffic controllers have threatened to remain on strike until at least Saturday, March 23. 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 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.
