BREAKING : Skeyes to close the entire Belgian airspace

This was just announced by the air traffic control company.

The Belgian airspace will be closed as from 22:00L tonight until 22:00L tomorrow, announced Skeyes, ex-Belgocontrol, so people travelling from or to Belgium will be unable to fly as Skeyes can’t certify an enough amount of air traffic controllers at work tomorrow.

The only aircraft able to fly will be humanitarians, emergencies, search & rescue flights and aircraft transporting life organs.

No worries for people travelling through Belgian airspace, Eurocontrol, based at Maastricht (MST/EHBK) will continue to work and will be available as from 24500ft.
