Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

A judge has just ruled that Belgian ANSP skeyes will have to pay €10,000 per flight (or €20,000 for long-haul routes) to Brussels Airlines if the airline has to cancel, divert or delay flights by more than one hour due to ATC strikes between tomorrow and 26 May.

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

It's time for the Government to act and impose a minimum service rule, like at the Belgian Railways and the Walloon TEC (which just got a 1M euro fine because it did not carry out that minimum service in some regions on 14 May). And in case of a wildcat strike (= illegal), the strikers (or their uni...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Brussels Airlines estimates that the losses due to strikes at skeyes amount to at least 4 million euros. This could well mean the difference between being profitable or not at the end of the year!
