First Flight Leaves Brus­sels Since At­tacks

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Brus­sels: A Brus­sels Air­lines plane head­ing to the Por­tuguese city of Faro took off from Brus­sels air­port on Sun­day, the first pas­sen­ger flight to leave the air­port since sui­cide bomb­ings on March 22 ripped through its check-in coun­ters. Se­cu­rity at the air­port was tight with com­pletely new check-in pro­ce­dures for pas­sen­gers. Two other planes were sched­uled to leave later Sun­day — Brus­sels Air­lines flights to Athens and Turin, Italy. The three flights were a test run for a Euro­pean avi­a­tion hub that used to han­dle 600 flights a day and plans to slowly climb back to nor­mal ca­pac­ity. AP
