Cargo flights resume at Brussels Airport but passenger operations remain suspended

Brussels Airport has said cargo operations will resume today (March 23) following yesterday’s terrorist attacks that left 11 people dead.
The airport said in a statement issued at 18:30 local time: "Partial aerial activities will resume tonight. Cargo flights and private flights handled by General Aviation can resume as of now. Passenger flights are suspended until Friday included.
"At the moment the crime scene investigation is still ongoing at the terminal of Brussels Airport. Until further notice, the perimeter around the airport remains as it is.
"We are unfortunately unable to give any indication on further timing about when the terminal will be cleared and ready for inspection by airport staff to determine the damage and to start reconstruction.
"A wake will be held this evening by airport staff in remembrance of the victims.  Our management will be present at the wake. Out of respect for the victims, their family and our employees, interviews will not be given. Thank you for your understanding."
