14th June, press release by the unions: results from the negociations are not good enough yet... management still hasn't given in to all our demands... there is slow progress, but most probably there will be no partial strike... https://www.hln.be/nieuws/binnenland/nog-steeds-geen-witte-rook-na-soc...

Re: 2019 Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL/EBCI) latest news

Digital remote control towers : skeyes has started a project for the airports of Charleroi and Liège to replace the physical towers. The intention is that both airports will be managed from one location. Fewer air traffic controllers will then be needed than in two separate towers. https://m.hln.be/...
