A wildcat strike that started this morning at Brussels Airport, Belgium is seriously disrupting travel plans of thousands of passengers. Passengers that boarded the aircraft were forced to leave the aircraft again. It’s currently unclear why the staff decided to stop working. Most likely, the disruptions on air traffic will last throughout the day. 

Part of the workers at ramp handler Aviapartner have started spontaneous actions this morning. As a result, baggage handling & operations will be delayed. We do everything in our power to limit the impact of this action & apologize for any inconvenience,” Brussels Airport informed on social media.
