What you may expect at the airport
Leave on holiday safely
Travelling during COVID-19 is a bit different. At Brussels Airport, we do our best to make sure your journey gets off to a safe start. With this video we show you what to expect. We will keep you informed of the current corona measures at Brussels Airport.
With plexiglass, ground signs, compulsory face masks and disinfectant hand gel, we ensure that our operations are as safe as possible. In addition, we would like to give three tips to travellers at the airport.
1. Only passengers are allowed
During COVID-19 only passengers are allowed in the airport building. Please note that you cannot pick up a family member in the airport building. Your boarding pass will be checked at the entrance of the terminal.
2. Keep a safe distance and wear your face mask
At Brussels Airport, we adhere to the general security measures of the Belgian Government. It is important that all travellers respect the following regulations:
- Keep 1.5 metres away from other travellers
- Wear the mouth mask correctly at the airport and on the plane.
- Wash and disinfect your hands regularly.
Next, it is best to look up the applicable corona measures in the country you are flying to. These may differ depending on your destination and travel period.
