BRUSSELS — Talks between unions and Zaventem Airport operator BIAC ended at about 8pm on Tuesday and will continue again on Wednesday and Thursday in a "positive atmosphere".

Unions threatened industrial action on Monday, raising fears of flight delays in a dispute over service rosters and overtime.
 
The strike warning and the threat of a closed airport during the summer holiday departure rush meant talks between BIAC and unions were swiftly convened.
 
BIAC management invited unions to the negotiating table on Tuesday. The talks started at 4pm and lasted until 8pm.

BIAC spokesman Paul De Backer said they will continue on Wednesday and Thursday in a "positive atmosphere".
