The airport is understood to be currently facing issues across the site, and the duration of the strike is not known at this time.
Approximately 75 planes take off each day from Charleroi and as many land. On Wednesday, a dozen passengers missed their plane as a result of similar actions.
Update: At 14:00, the doors of the security checks at Charleroi airport opened to let people waiting in the departure hall. Unfortunately, for a majority of them, their plane had already departed. In addition, passengers stranded outside the airport have still not been able to access it.
