Just 12 days after the deadly suicide bombing attacks in Belgium that claimed the lives of 32 people, Brussels airport is expected to partially re-open on Sunday.
In a press conference earlier today, Brussels airport CEO Amaud Feist stated that the first flights since the attacks will take off on Sunday pending authorization.
With operations commencing once again, heightened security measures will also be implemented within the airport including screening areas for approaching vehicles as well as additional security checkpoints inside the terminal for boarding pass and passenger ID checks.
During the first stages of the airports re-commencement, security will only be allowing passengers travelling in cars and taxi’s to the main terminal.
Feist also said the re-opening is a “sign of hope” for the Belgium people.
Officials are hoping to have the airport fully operational by the end of June.
