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

For the people/companies impacted by the strikes it is important to have a complete overview of the situation and salary is part of it. Can we at least agree on those figures ? I don't have any problem with those figures. It looks consistent with those published by Eurocontrol. I didn't check for o...

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

About the 6000€ salary (after tax), he didn't talk about overtime (which doesn't mean that it wasn't included, let's be fair). But even without, they are above it (radar controllers in Canac with several years of experience, not tower). With overtime included, some were making much more than that w...

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

Has anyone noticed that the Belgian airspace remains open for three consecutive nights. An extra reimbursement for those who are working on Sunday and public holiday (Easter)? I also notice that it is very quiet at the moment with our friends atco's on this forum. Correct me if I'm wrong but there ...

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

Phoenix, a few questions: - what is the abscence rate of atcos due to ilness in %? - if we understand you correctly, this is going on since many years. But at the same time a lot is being done to hire additional staff, but training takes time. So why suddenly these actions at a time where you would...

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...
