Nationwide strike grounds all flights in Belgium for 24 hours

All flights to and from Belgium were canceled for 24 hours on Wednesday due to a nationwide strike called by the country’s three main trade unions to demand increased wages.

The agency in charge of Belgian air traffic, Skeyes, said it was forced to ground all commercial flights from Tuesday at 10pm until the same time on Wednesday night, EFE reported.

The leadership of the Brussels Airport has already announced the cancellation of more than half of the 569 scheduled flights on the day of the strike. The strike will affect up to 60,000 passengers.
