"In a worst case scenario, I expect a loss of 80 to 90 million euros", Feist said. The airport was closed for two weeks after the blasts. Today, it is back at 80 percent capacity, and the aim is to have it back at 100% by the start of the summer holidays and the exodus of holiday makers to the various holiday resorts.
"We are optimistic", Feist told the VRT. Despite the various hiccups after the restart, including very long queues and two strikes, the CEO hopes that Brussels Airport can get back in business to reach the same level as before the attacks. "We see that traffic is growing fast the past few days."
Yesterday, it was announced that Brussels Airlines is also expecting a loss of 80 to 90 million euros.
