Brussels, Apr 3 (IBNS): Days after militants attacked Brussels, the airport, which was one of the targets, reopened on Sunday.

Three Brussels Airlines flights were scheduled to depart from the airport.

The first flight departed from the airport for Faro in Portugal, reports said.

"1st passenger plane back at #brusselsairport, saluted by emergency services. Welcome back @FlyingBrussels," the official Twitter page of the airport posted.

"Happy to welcome passengers to #brusselsairport again today. Thanks to all staff & thoughts, forever, to the victims. #BrusselsTribute," read another tweet.

Militants had attacked the airport and a Brussels metro station last month which left at least 32 people killed.

Militant group IS had claimed responsibility for the attack which shocked the European nation on Mar 22.
