Traveling with Brussels Airlines, and connecting, starting or ending a journey at Brussels Airport, is now much easier again, after mask requirements have been lifted by the Belgian government.
While mask wearing at the airport is no longer mandatory, in view of the large number of passengers presently using the airport facilities, may individuals still decide to wear a mask for their own peace of mind and their own health safety and many in fact still do as could be seen over the weekend while at Zaventem.
On board the airline, or prior to departure in the Brussels Airlines lounges, is mask wearing also no longer a mandatory requirement but many individuals continue to wear a mask as an added measure of protection against the Corona virus and they are free to do so.
Adds ATCNews.org that an upswing of case numbers, despite the hot summer weather at present, can be seen across Europe and taking health safety measures on a personal level is the choice, and responsibility of each individual traveler.
It is also the responsibility of each traveler to be aware of the current health regulation and potential restrictions and requirement of their destination country, or a country where they transit through, to avoid any kind of problems arising from, for instance, lack of documentation.
Says the Brussels Airlines corporate website:
