Brussels Airport to Reopen with Reduced Capacity

Brussels Airport has received the go ahead from the fire services and the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) for a partial restart of passenger flights at the airport.

Over the past few days a provisional infrastructure has been put in place that would allow the airport to receive 800 departing passengers per hour, or 2.5 million departing passengers a year. That's about 20% of the normal capacity.

UPDATE 3 April 2016: The first flights to depart from Brussels Airport will take off on 3 April 2016. There will be just three flights departing today (3 April), all operated by Brussels Airlines to Faro, Turin and Athens. In the following days, the number of flights will gradually be increased to the maximum capacity of the temporary structures, that is 800 departing passengers per hour. Other airlines, besides Brussels Airlines, will also recommence their operations at Brussels Airport in the days ahead. More at: Brussels Airport Reopens with Limited Capacity.
