100 Flights Cancelled As Baggage Handlers Go On Strike In Belgium

A strike by baggage handlers at Brussels airport has caused the cancellation of around 100 flights, affecting thousands of passengers during a major school holiday, an official said Friday.

Some 300 travellers spent night at Brussels-Zaventem airport after handlers at Belgian firm Aviapartner downed tools ‘spontaneously.

About 100 departing and arriving flights were cancelled, mainly at Ryanair.

The strike was over demands for higher staffing levels.
