“We are expecting a large number of passengers for Tuesday and Wednesday, after the rebooking of reservations initially planned for Monday,” Brussels Airport said in a series of tweets. The airport advises departing passengers to arrive 2 hours in advance for flights within the Schengen area, and 3 hours in advance for trips outside the Schengen area.
