Today, 3 April 2016, Brussels Zaventem Airport partially reopened. We remind you that on 22 March, around 8, two explosions shake the "Departures" Terminal of Zaventem Brussels International Airport. As a result of the terrorist act, several victims and dozens were injured.
At 12 days after the jihadist attack, the airport manager announced its partial reopening, with only 3 commercial flights. These are the Brussels Airlines flights to Faro, Turin and Athens. In the coming days, the number of aircrafts will increase until the maximum processing capacity of temporary 800 passenger structures per hour is reached.

In the coming weeks, the Belgian authorities will work on a strategic plan to renovate the departure hall. It will have 2 stages. In the first part, the check-in counters will be put into operation, and the second part will include the complete reopening of the departure room.
The airport is currently accessible for taxis and private cars. Trains and bus routes have not yet been reopened. There will be additional security measures at the entrance to the airport area and at the entrance to the check-in area. Brussels Airport recommends that passengers arrive at least 3 hours before boarding time, and that their identity and travel documents are handy.
