It seems that the first of the new electric buses arrived this morning. Spotted at Melsbroek, in front of the entrance of airside:

Refurbishment of customs zone in baggage reclaim hall: Work commencing on 25/03:
The baggage reclaim hall zone in which customs and the passageway to the arrivals hall are located, is receiving a thorough makeover.
Specifically, work is being carried out on various aspects:
- Inviting new look & feel
- One central exit for all passengers: no longer a distinction between passengers who have travelled inside or outside the EU.
- A wider passageway that will ensure a smoother flow.
- Increased privacy for travellers who are approached for a customs inspection.
- Improved customs offices

The works will commence on 25 March and be completed prior to the summer holidays. The zone will remain accessible and passenger flow unaffected throughout the works, although certain parts of the zone will be hidden behind a construction site wall.
Revised signage will be provided.
A storage area for luggage trolleys is also located in the area that is undergoing refurbishment. The trolleys will be distributed throughout other parts of the baggage reclaim hall.

This morning, the automated passport scanners at Brussels Airport arrivals level were broken (again). The queues were still ok but the - most likely - expensive things should work.

The future extension of A-Pier West will not be within 5 years. There are many delays due to bureaucracy and external factors. Latest update

That's a pitty, because the airport is lacking gates during the morning hours!

Any update on what exactly is holding back the start of the construction works, Atlantis?

I’d wager it’s more likely the other way around. Doubts exist whether SN will keep on existing at all. EW isn’t exactly doing well, and since SN will be integrated into that group, who knows what will happen if it goes belly up.
Big if, of course.

Hi Inquirer,

The parties who are creating the delay, I can not mention by name due to the ongoing status. But there are several. But to receive the needed permissions and approvals is taking soooo long. Politics ;)
We are one of the few countries where it takes so long to receive permissions. But like I wrote, this is only one of the few issues

Nature hates vacuum. If SN disappears, many vultures are ready to swallow its remains.
