Brussels Airport has increased its testing capacity in recent days. Despite some initial hiccups, everything went well this Saturday, the airport spokesperson said on Saturday.
Since Thursday, anyone who has stayed more than two days in a red zone abroad has the obligation to quarantine. Travelers must be tested immediately on the day of their return, as well as seven days later. To this end, it was notably decided to extend the existing test capacity at Brussels airport.
500 tests per hour
Some 7,000 incoming passengers were expected on the Zaventem tarmac this Saturday. But not all of them have been tested.
The screening capacity has quadrupled in recent days at the airport to reach 500 tests per hour. There were some problems at the start, at the start of the weekend. For example, not all passengers received an activation code allowing them to be tested. But after discussion between the airport and the authorities, it was agreed that passengers could be tested for free, without an activation code, via manual registration, explains the spokesperson for Brussels Airport. “And in the meantime, the code activation issues have also been resolved,” she says.
