After chaos at European airports: Brussels airport associations fear trouble during summer vacation | for travel

Experts believe that summer portends chaos at airports. There was already a lot of trouble in Great Britain and Ireland this weekend. Thousands of people missed their travels. They are also aware of the problem in Cologne, Dusseldorf and Schiphol. It was busy at Zaventem last weekend, but there were no problems. Despite the plethora of vacancies in Zaventem, the airport says it will be able to handle the crowds this summer.

It could be very difficult this summer, said Kurt Calerts of ACV Transcom, which advocates for employee interests in the aviation sector: “There are still more than 300 vacancies. Are all these people trained by this summer? That would be an achievement.”

A month ago, Zaventem Airport itself demanded more staff. They were looking for 1,200 people at the time. The airport is fully prepared with all operating partners to ensure that operations run as smoothly as possible. At peak times, (limited) queues cannot be ruled out, but we are doing our best to make the holiday period as smoothly as possible and not expect major problems like we see at other airports,” the statement from Brussels Airport reads.

Transport experts believe that the problems in our country will not be the same, but it will not be easy: “Waiting for bags will certainly be possible,” says transport expert Water Dewolf. It will be very important to arrive on time.”
