Boarding and departure

That's it! You've checked in, passed security screening and border control, and now you're quietly waiting at the gate. The next step is of course to take your place on the plane, although in these COVID-19 times your boarding will be slightly different than what you are used to....

For everything to run smoothly, it is important that you arrive at the gate at least half an hour before the departure time of your flight. You will find your gate number on the flight information displays throughout the airport. If you have installed the Brussels Airport app, you can also find the gate and the departure time of your flight in the app.

To guarantee a smooth boarding, it is important that you listen to the announcements in the terminal. As soon as you get permission to board, you need to keep your boarding pass and ID/passport at hand. You will need to scan your boarding pass yourself and possibly show your ID/passport to the boarding staff.

Don't forget to keep a distance of 1.5 meters at all times. Queuing barriers at the gate will help you observe social distancing.

Each airline has its own health measures. Are you curious as to how your airline will handle it? Then make sure to take a look at their website before your departure.
