Air traffic into Brussels Airport, which reopened this mo after a fatal bomb attack, was disrupted on Wednesday as a strike among air traffic controllers continued.

The airport, one of Europe'south busiest, had reopened on April three with Ltd capacity, restricted by temporary structures and tight security after bombs destroyed the departure corridor on March 22.

Work leaders had asked staff to call in ill on Tuesday due to disagreements over a proposed dispute settlement, including a rise in the minimum retirement age.

"A lot of people called in ill again," a spokesman for air traffic authority Belgocontrol said on Wednesday. "We're Ltd to fifteen movements an hr until ten a. m. when we'll reevaluate the situation."

A spokeswoman for Brussels Airport said some fifty flights had been canceled at the airport so distant on Wednesday, out of about four hundred scheduled flights.

Flights into Charleroi Airport, a low-cost airline hub, hadn't been affected on Wednesday, a spokesman said.

The strike had been severely criticized by IATA, the world airlines' main trade association, which called it a "kick in the teeth" for airlines and airport staff.
