Brussels Attacks: Austrian Airlines reinstates flights to Belgium via Liège Airport


Brussels Airport still closed down, alternative routing to Lüttich (Liège) between 29 March and 04 April 2016

Unfortunately, Brussels Airport is not yet fully operational in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of March 22, 2016.

Lüttich Airport is located about 100 km from Brussels and can be reached in about one hour by train.
