The departure lounge at Brussels Airport, which was heavily damaged during the attack on the 22nd of March, will be used by 25 airlines from Monday. These include Brussels Airlines, Jetairfly and Thomas Cook, the airport’s internet site said on Saturday. Special signs have been put up for passengers to show which company they are flying with.
The temporary system that was put in place a few weeks ago will continue over the next few days. 34 companies, including Ryanair, Easyjet, KLM and Vueling, check their passengers in this way. Signs have been put up for these passengers to show which terminal they have to go to.
The list of companies that are using the two lounges can be found on the Brussels Airport website (https://www.brusselsairport.be/fr/paxinfo/halls1n2/). The departure lounges will partially open on Sunday. After a reopening ceremony, passengers on three flights can check-in over the afternoon.
In total, 111 check-in counters have been opened, as well as 36 others in temporary constructions. This will increase the airport’s capacity by 80%, compared to the number of passengers before the attacks. Brussels Airport wants to get to full capacity in the second half of June.
