Brussels airport receives clearance to resume services

Following the terrorist bombings that took place on 22nd March , Brussels airport has received the go-ahead from fire services and the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority for a partial resumption of passenger flights.

The announcement followed Ryanair confirming that it will continue to operate flights to Brussels Charleroi airport until April 7 following the closure of Zaventem.

A provisional infrastructure that would allow the airport to receive 800 departing passengers per hour, or 2.5 million a year, was completed at Zaventem in the past few days. That would only allow for about 20% of the normal capacity.

A statement from the airport operating company said: “The airport is technically ready for a re-start of passenger flights in the temporary infrastructure foreseen for check-in.

“On the other hand, arriving passengers will go through the usual baggage reclaim and arrivals in the terminal. This zone was only slightly damaged and has since been restored for use”.
