Belgocontrol - Industrial action by air traffic controllers confirmed
Wednesday 29, September 2010
In spite of various attempts at reconciliation, Belgocontrol regrets to announce that the NOTAM announcing the closure of the Belgian civil airspace from Tuesday 28 September 2010 at 2 p.m. to Wednesday 29 September at 2 p.m. is now in force.
No formal demands concerning the air traffic controllers’ unofficial action have been received by trade union representatives, nor by the company management. Since the reasons behind this action have not officially been made known, the meeting with the trade union representatives held this morning could not be brought to a successful conclusion.
Belgocontrol sincerely regrets the current action, penalising the passengers, the airline companies and the airports. Belgocontrol management is ready to resume talks as from the moment the company receives a formal list of demands, transmitted in accordance with trade union status regulations.

With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
