This morning, air traffic in Belgian airspace below flightlevel 24,500 is disrupted due to industrial actions at air traffic control company skeyes (former Belgocontrol). According to Brussels Airport, the actions are scheduled between 08:00 and tomorrow (21 March) 07:00 (UTC +1).
On average, flights have been delayed 30 minutes. But at Brussels Airport the delays are higher: 45 minutes (source: Eurocontrol). This will cause a knock-on effect, hence delays at Brussels Airport will continue throughout the day. Yesterday, unions warned they would toughen social actions at skeyes, yet with “relatively small disturbances” for air traffic.
