Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

I've seen this in Bruges in a Bank (Axa), When you have an appointment at the bank, you get a free ticket for 1h parking in "'t Zand". When leaving, you insert this 1h free ticket before paying and the 1h is deducted from whatever you need to pay... It was already a couple of years ago, I don't know...

Re: Reopening Brussels Airport after the 22/03/2016 terror attacks

Last friday, I passed security at bus station level and I did NOT need to go through the screening. There were +/- 30 people waiting at the screening, so the police let everyone enter the building with no check. So it is not so that everyone is checked always. Maybe the procedure must be explained a...

Re: BRU infrastructure: future

I'm already pleased that tents will be removed and that there will be an INSIDE structure for the precheck. Thus no more waiting in the outside (although there is not that much waiting anymore). And if wit a descent structure and max 5 minutes waiting (in case of check), I don't think people will co...

In 'Het Laatste Nieuws' of today it was stated that theire is now also a precheck on arrival level. A quick translation of the important part: the necessary equipment and infrastructure on arrivel level has been installed to ensure a precheck by the police. This check is not for departing passengers...
