At best one hundred passengers took the bus service introduced three weeks ago on an average day, while some 35,000 people usually fly in and out of the airport. Brussels Airport's Jan Van der Cruysse says that he had expected far more passengers to use the shuttle, but that clearly many people had made other provisions.
On Sunday the shuttle will operate for the last time. Brussels Airport has given a commitment that it will re-introduce the service in the event of an emergency e.g. if the airport becomes inaccessible due to a traffic accident.
