Brussels Airport is to reopen Sunday, 12 days after its departure hall was wrecked by Islamic State suicide bombings, with chief executive Arnaud Feist announcing three flights.
"From Sunday morning, Brussels Airport should be partially operational," Feist told a press conference Saturday, adding that the resumption of services "plays an important role in our grieving process".
"This restart, even if it's only partially, is a sign of hope," he said.
The first scheduled flights to Athens, Turin and Faro will be operated by Brussels Airlines and start leaving from Sunday afternoon.
A total of 32 people were killed in the March 22 attacks on the airport and a metro station in Brussels.
