Belgium: Brussels international airport to partially reopen

The international airport in Belgium’s capital, Brussels, is set to partially reopen amid tight security checks after a 12-day shutdown of passenger flights due to the deadly attacks claimed by the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group. 

Zaventem Airport chief executive, Arnaud Feist, said the facility would resume services on Sunday with three “symbolic” Brussels Airlines flights. The first flight is expected to take off for the Portuguese city of Faro around 2 p.m. local time (1200 GMT).

The others will be bound for the Greek capital, Athens, and Italy’s Turin. “These flights are the first hopeful sign from an airport that is standing up straight after a cowardly attack,” Feist said.
