Brussels ATC Strike Condemned

Geneva - The International Air Transport Association (IATA) condemned the strike action by Air Traffic Controllers in Belgium which significantly disrupted flights from Brussels airport today.

"This action by air traffic controllers is a kick in the teeth for all the airline and airport staff who have worked so hard to reconnect Brussels to the world after the appalling terrorist attack just three weeks ago. It is the height of irresponsibility to cut a vital service and doing so without warning can only be seen as malicious. If we cannot count on simple human decency from such highly-compensated professionals then itís time for governments to find ways to guarantee the availability of air traffic control services," said Tony Tyler, IATAís Director General and CEO.
