Obama visit to cause disruptions at Brussels Airport

On 25 and 26 March the American president Barack Obama will be visiting our country. His arrival and departure entail extensive security measures. These measures may have an impact on the scheduled times of both arriving and departing commercial flights. Although the airport operator does not expect any flights to be cancelled, delays at certain moments are very likely. For more information about their specific flight, passengers are advised to contact their airline.
On 25 and 26 March the airport may be difficult to reach for the same reason. Both rail and road traffic to and from the airport may be disrupted at certain moments. That is why Brussels Airport advises all departing passengers to provide ample time to arrive at the airport. Arriving passengers too may meet with traffic disruptions when leaving the airport.
Traffic information on the radio and the internet may provide more exact information on both days.  Brussels Airport itself will inform the passengers through Twitter.

Tunnel at end of runway in new phase

As from 8/3/2014 all traffic on the R11 road (Militaire baan) will pass over a new parallel road. This is new road has been constructed so that work on the tunnel at the end of the runway can start. Work will be done mostly during the night as no large matrial such as cranes can be used during opening hours of the airport (7am-11pm). The construction of a tunnel became necessary as the airport needs to install a RESA in order to be compliant with safety regulations. The RESA zone will be implemented on top of the tunnel and will go as far as Fort III. (db)
