Brussels, Apr 3 (IBNS): Days after militant attack hit Belgium, Brussels Airport is all set to restart passenger flights on Sunday, officials said.

For first time since the bomb attacks on Brussels Airport, 3 symbolic passenger flights will depart on Sunday.

In the days following, the number of flights will be gradually increased and passenger flights will also land at Brussels Airport, officials said.

The airport will resume operations with 3 symbolic flights on Sunday.

"These flights are operated by Brussels Airlines, and will fly to Faro, Turin and Athens. In the following days, the number of flights will gradually be increased to the maximum capacity of the temporary structures, that is 800 departing passengers per hour. Other airlines, besides Brussels Airlines, will also recommence their operations at Brussels Airport in the days ahead," the    Brussels Airport said in a statement.

“I am very pleased and proud to be able to announce that tomorrow, Sunday 3 April, Brussels Airport will be able to welcome its first passengers after the devastating bomb attacks. I am extremely grateful to all airport staff, federal police and the federal government for their efforts and commitment. These flights are the first hopeful sign from an airport that is standing up straight after a cowardly attack. That we are able to make this start only 12 days after the devastating attacks is a sign of our collective strength at Brussels Airport”, said Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company in a statement.
