BELGIUM. General strike on 13 February.
As of 10 pm this evening, a general 24-hour strike is held in Belgium. The air navigation service provider is forced not to allow air traffic between Tuesday 12 February 10 pm and Wednesday 13 February 10 pm. As a result, all passenger and cargo flight operated to and from Brussels Airport will be cancelled during this time frame. Although the terminal remains open, it is recommended not to come to the airport on Wednesday. Employees at Belgium’s national railway operator (SNCB) are also expected to participate in the strike. Travelers in Belgium are advised to monitor developments to the situation, to confirm their travel itineraries and to allow for extra time to reach their destinations.
