    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — Brussels airport is likely to resume full operations by June, following the recent terrorist attack, airport CEO Arnaud Feist said Friday.

    On Thursday, the airport was given the go ahead by the relevant regulatory bodies to partially restart passenger flights to and from the facility. However, according to the airport's management, the facility will remain closed up until and including April 3.

    "We will do everything possible to be ready by June. The priority now is the opening of the airport and security," Feist told Radio 1, commenting on security requirements.

    Two suicide blasts ripped through the departures hall of Brussels Airport in the northeastern municipality of Zaventem on March 22. A further explosion occurred at the Maelbeek station near the headquarters of the EU institutions. A total of 31 people, including 3 suicide bombers, died in the attacks. More than 300 were injured.
