Brussels Airport will be closed officially until Thursday 24th but this may be extended. We will review the situation and the state of the airport and re-commence service as soon as possible.

I am sure you will join us all in placing your thoughts and prayers with all those who have been effected by today's terrible events.

After continually reviewing the situation at Brussels National Airport it will be necessary to suspend flights until at least April 1st. The Airport is planning to re-open for some operations on the 29th but its likely to take a few days for things to get back to normal. Once flights return to service a further announcement will be made.

Further reviews of the situation in Brussels now suggests that some operations will begin within the next few days but right now the airport remains closed. We will continue to suspend our services until a full operation is up and running. With this is mind we will continue to cancel flights upto the 10th of April. Should operations begin and start to return to normal earlier than the 10th then we will look to resume service earlier.

Following on from last weeks partial re-launch at Brussels it has been decided that the airports current security and temporary facilities are now able to handle our daily Operation. All major North American Airlines have already successfully restarted service and we are pleased to announce that from April 10th we will resume flights 79 & 80 to and from Brussels. The timings of the service will remain the same as before due to the Aircaft being on the ground for 7hrs leaving enough time for a full turnround under the new security measures.
