Delta Air Lines Resumes Service To Brussels
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines has resumed service to Brussels, Belgium less than a month after the terrorist attacks there. A flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport landed at the city’s Zaventem Airport Friday morning.
A Delta flight landed in Brussels just before two blasts went off at the airport and another at the Maalbeek metro station on the morning of March 22. 38 people were killed in the attacks, including the three attackers, and more than 300 were wounded.
In the wake of the attacks, Delta suspended all service to Brussels and issued travel waivers to passengers. Now that service has resumed, the airline says it will put a larger aircraft on the route to accommodate more passengers.
Delta’s service to Brussels from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is still suspended until March 2017 because of slipping demand for the route and uncertainty about when Zaventem Airport will resume normal operations.
