Air traffic is expected to peak at Brussels Airport in the summer. According to Arnaud Feist, CEO of the Belgian international airport, the airport will be able to resume up to 85% of its traffic reached three years ago, before the spread of the pandemic.
This seems good to stimulate the air transport sector and the tourism sector which has been heavily affected by the pandemic, but the head of the Belgian airport raised the subject of the lack of staff at the airport by affirming the launch a campaign to recruit more than a thousand employees to be able to face the next challenges and issues.
Mr. Feist stressed the importance of recruiting, for example, baggage handlers, stating that due to the lack of staff handling baggage handling at the airport, several airlines were forced to cancel their flights.
The Belgian official, however, said that more than a thousand job positions must be filled and occupied within a few weeks in order to be able to adapt to the massive return of travelers from this summer.
