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

One other thing is sure; the media never talked about the flexibility of those ATCO's. The general public only sees "fake doctor attests", "strikes", "actions", while many of them still cancel their days off to replace sick colleagues. That has been going on for ages. Don't you think too much flexi...

Portion of airspace is delegated from Brussels ACC to Liege Approach
Must we then understand that, whereas Brussels ACC operates from Steenokkerzeel, Liege Approach is really at EBLG?
Yes Liege Approach is operating from control tower at LGG !

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

So, the Germans take over the work of the sick Belgian ATCO’s? No. Portion of airspace is delegated from Brussels ACC to Liege Approach enabling a direct coordination between Liege and Langen. German ATCO'S don't do anything more than usual (even less as traffic is regulated : max 6 mouvements an h...

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

Interesting discussions here. Thanks for keeping it civilised and thanks for the load of information that you provide about ATC. I do have some questions: 1. When Reagan fired all the civilian atcos and replaced them with military ones, the civil aviation of the US did not collapse. How then is it ...

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

I was told the reason of tonight's 6 hours airspace closure is because there is no supervisor available for the night shift.

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

I see that the whole Belgian press is reporting about the closure of Belgian airspace at night, almost a daily feature in newspapers. It might be simpler to announce when airspace remains open the whole night! Some explanation from ACV/CSC representative : https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbi...

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

By the way, every night, those 3 sectors are collapsed on ONE sector and managed by ONE controller. That means that unless only one "west qualified" controller is present for the whole night (very unlikely as the sectors would have to close for much longer than 3 hours), it is possible to remain op...
