Flights at Brussels Airport will not resume until at least Tuesday in the wake of this week's deadly terror attack which destroyed much of its check-in hall, it was announced Saturday.

Two bombs ripped through the departure hall Tuesday, killing at least 10 people there and injuring scores.

Incoming flights have been diverted and airlines have scrambled to rebook passengers on flights to alternative cities.

The airport is one of Europe's busiest air travel hubs, and is the home base of Star Alliance member Brussels Airlines.
