CARDIFF Airport has assured passengers the airport is operating as usual following the suicide attacks in Brussels today.
Over 80 people have been confirmed injured and 28 killed in a double explosion at Brussels airport and on the city’s underground system.
In a statement Cardiff Airport said: “Following the events at Brussels Airport this morning we would like to reassure those travelling to and from Cardiff that the Airport is operating as normal and the safety and security of our passengers and staff remains our number one priority.
“Our police and security teams remain vigilant and customers may notice an increased presence in the terminal. The Department for Transport keep aviation security under constant review and will update all UK airports as necessary.”
Other UK airports have taken further measures. Manchester Airport has increased its police presence and Gatwick has confirmed it has also increased security.
Cardiff did advise people to check if they were flying to Brussels. They said: “As Brussels Airport is currently closed, passengers due to be travelling to Brussels from Cardiff via a connecting service should contact their airline for more information.”
South Wales Police have said they have made no changes to security arrangements in light the Brussels attacks.
