Zaventem hub begins the second day of its partial reopening
Brussels airport increased the number of destinations for departing flights on Monday, one of after its partial reopening following the attacks of March 22. Over 20 flights were schduled to leave from the Zaventem hub.
On Sunday, only three flights departed the airport. Airport authorities say they hope by 100 flights departing on Tuesday and to return to maximum capacity before the start of summer holidays at the end of June or early July.
All passengers have been warned to arrive at least three hours before all flights due to the increased security.
