Like all passengers they must pass a prescreening check upon entry to the airport. Brussels Airport announced on Monday (13 June) that the halls of departures and arrivals have become accessible again for people accompanying passengers. They had been denied access to the halls following the terrorist attack on 22 March.
During the first weeks after the attacks, the airport was accessible only to people who had to take a flight. They had prior to show the boarding card, which is no longer required.
People accompanying travelers can now access the building after going through a mandatory screening.
The arrival hall is open to the public, via the stairs that connect the different levels of the terminal (railway station, bus stops, arrival hall and departure hall).
Persons wishing to wait for their relatives to arrive must pass first through the departures hall and the controls that are installed there. They can leave the arrival hall at the same level.
