Aviapartner Belgium has written a letter to the Belgian Council of State as they are unhappy about the temporary licence at Brussels Airport. The Council will now start an inquiry and will ask the airport for more information and details, in order to have a clear picture of the case.
According to Belgian financial newspaper De Tijd, both handlers Aviapartner and Swissport are in such a bad financial situation that they should not be allowed to operate at Brussels airport. To be able to operate at the airport you should demonstrate that you can continue working for three months without any income.
Both ground handlers have only received temporary licences at Brussels Airport. The current one will expire at the end of January 2018. Aviapartner is tired of the continuous uncertainty and wants a firm commitment together with official recognition.
