Spaniards returning from Brussels report two-and-a-half-hour delays at airport security

THE first few Spaniards who witnessed the bombings have managed to make it home, starting with the young Balearic regional government worker Antoni Vicens, who has to make regular trips to the EU headquarters as part of his job.

He landed in Palma de Mallorca yesterday (Wednesday) having flown from Charleroi airport with Ryanair, and reveals that security checks are now extra-zealous.

Each suitcase is scrutinised one by one, and the entire security procedures between check-in or bag-drop and boarding are taking at least two-and-a-half hours.

Vicens arranged to get to the airport three hours before his flight as recommended by airlines, but had to walk the last 1.5 kilometres to the Charleroi terminal as the taxi driver was not prepared to get any closer.

On the same flight, equine medicine student Margalida, who is based in a town 20 kilometres from Brussels but was returning to her native Mallorca for the Easter holidays, says outside the capital nobody would know anything had happened other than the constant news reports.

She complains that no information is being given to air passengers and they are finding out second-hand whether or not their flights are affected.

Charleroi airport is fairly small, and is struggling to cope with all the passengers and flights diverted from the much larger Zaventem, Margalida reveals.
