Brussels Airlines says airport shutdown costs it 5 million euros a day

FRANKFURT, March 29 (Reuters) – Belgium’s Brussels Airways, 45-percent owned by Deutsche Lufthansa, is chalking up 5 million euros ($5.6 million) in daily costs from the closure of its Brussels hub after last week’s attacks. Both the expenses from rerouting passenger traffic and lost revenues are weighing on the bottom line, a Brussels Airways spokesman said. Belgium’s regional airports in Antwerp and Liege offer only limited short-haul capacity as an alternative, he said.
