Brussels Airport extends its deepest sympathy to the friends and relatives of the victims of the explosions in the departures hall on Tuesday.

Following these attacks, there will be no passenger flights into and out of Brussels Airport today and tomorrow Thurday 24 March.

Brussels Airlines passengers who have checked in their luggage at a foreign airport and were unable to retrieve their luggage upon arrival in Brussels on Tuesday, we kindly ask you to file a missing baggage report here. Please use token BRUMAR22 to complete your report.
