Dozens of people missed their flights this morning due to numerous punctuality measures. This was stated by the official spokesman for Charleroi Airport. “Not only at the airport, but throughout the airport are actions being taken,” the CEO said this morning.
There is also a delay of more than two hours at Brussels Airport. The unions are also campaigning around the airport there. To give passengers enough time to catch their flight, planes depart shortly afterwards. This was reported by Nathalie Pierard, a spokeswoman for Brussels Airport. So far, punctuality measures have not focused on flights within the Schengen area. “But that could change over the course of the day, we don’t know,” says Pierard. “We still recommend that passengers arrive at the airport early.”
It is now somewhat quieter at both airports, but a second peak moment is expected in the afternoon and night.
“We are doing our best to reduce inconvenience and long queues for passengers as much as possible, but passengers should then allow an additional half an hour to an hour of time compared to normal parking,” spokeswoman Natalie Beierard said.
Why does this work punctuality?
The measure was organized after the recent collapse of wage negotiations. We haven’t seen a single wage increase in twenty years. We can never agree with what’s on the table right now.” The plans to review the end-of-career plan are also unpopular with the guilds.
“But the final straw was the cut in the federal police budget,” DeHaes says. “We absolutely can’t keep doing that. It’s a bridge too far.”
The procedure depends on the different police unions: in addition to ACV, VSOA, ACOD and NSPV. Dehaes also reports that this promotion will not be the last in the coming months. It will be a hot autumn.
