Bomb threats have been reported on two passenger planes which have landed at Brussels Airport.

According to broadcaster VRT, currently two aircrafts are on the runway at the airport in Zaventem, Belgium.

Fortunately, both planes landed safely. The planes are now being inspected.

It is known that two planes involved were: SAS flight SK4745 from Oslo and SAS flight SK2591 from Stockholm.

 

Local media reports flights have been diverted from the travel hub following the bomb alerts. Air traffic control reportedly received the bomb threats directly from the planes’ pilots who received the threat around 20 minutes from landing.

However, Brussels remains on high alert after a series of attacks in Belgium and across Europe and says threats to be serious enough to take measures.
