Travel Alert: Brussels Airport
Authorities have locked down the Belgium capital Brussels, after its airport and subway system was hit by two explosions. One blast hit Zaventem airport, and another explosion struck Maelbeek metro station an hour later. Belgium has raised it’s terrorism threat to it’s highest level.
The Terminal has been evacuated and flights have been rerouted to other airports close by. Airlines have cancelled flights to and from Brussels today, and are issuing flexible travel policies that allow customers to make changes to their reservation without penalty. Security has been increased at airports in the UK, France and the Netherlands.
Our tour partners like Trafalgar that were scheduled to visit Brussels today, have arranged for alternative transportation to bypass Brussels and proceed to the next city on their itinerary.
If you are concerned your travel plans may be affected by the incident at Brussels Airport, please contact your Flight Centre travel agent to find out change and cancellation options.
We make it our job to provide updates on travel advisories from airlines and will take care of rescheduling your flight to fit your needs as best we can.
