Travel chaos looms as Belgium prepares for a general strike which will hit air and rail travel
Belgium is due for another general strike on Monday, with public and private sector workers taking a day of action over planned austerity measures.
The strike, which will coincide with the EU summit in the country's capital, Brussels, is expected to cause air and rail cancellations.
With a day of travel trouble looming, passengers on all transport are well advised to check they have
travel insurance cover as a safety net.
Ryanair, the main operator at the capital's second airport Brussels Charleroi, may have to cancel all its flights to the city, as airport and air traffic control staff are reportedly expected to join the strike.
The airline is to publish all flights affected and Brussels Airlines said it was working out the impact on its flights because it depended on outside parties to run them.
