Text size Aa Aa

Many flights into and out of Brussels Airport have been cancelled due to a 24 hour strike by aircraft loading staff and baggage handlers.

Workers from luggage handling firm Aviapartner staged the walk out after the airport said it was switching to another company – Swissport – for baggage and freight handling, and loading and unloading of aircraft from November 1.

Aviapartner provides services for some 40 airlines, including Air France-KLM, British Airways, easyJet and United.

“Some flights using Aviapartner are still running. In the case of Thomas Cook, it is bussing passengers to nearby regional airports,” the spokesman said.
