A second day of talks on Sunday failed to bring an end to the dispute. Nevertheless, the Airport’s Spokeswoman Anke Fransen told journalists that as on Saturday night no passengers had asked to be able to sleep in the airport building and that consequently the airport had not put out any camp beds.
However, “There could always be a passenger that has spent the night at the airport on their own initiative”, Ms Fransen added.
Ms Fransen went onto say that passengers should best keep in touch with their airline to check whether or not it is worth them going to the airport. Some airlines have diverted flights to other airports and are providing coaches to get their passengers there from Zaventem.
Meanwhile, the airline TUIfly has said that it will provide its own staff to load and unload its aircraft for the further duration of the strike.
"Airlines can ask for an exemption allowing them do their own baggage handling and some of them have done so”, Ms Fransen explained.
