Trying to confirm status of passengers, staffers: Jet Airways

New Delhi, Mar 22: Jet Airways said it is making efforts to confirm the status of its passengers and employees at the Brussels airport, where two explosions ripped through the departure hall during the morning rush hour today, leaving at least one person dead.

Brussels airport serves as Jet Airways' European hub for international operations. The airline had, however, recently announced relocation of this gateway to the Dutch capital Amsterdam from coming Sunday. [Brussels attack: Shout heard in Arabic before blasts, says Belgian news agency]

It also said that as per the first information, its aircraft at Brussles were safe. Jet Airways operates daily flights between Brussels and New Delhi and Mumbai in India and Newark and Toronto in North America.

The Naresh Goyal-promoted airline started using the Belgian capital as a hub in September 2007, when it began flying to Europe, making it the first Indian airline to have full-scale operations outside the country, besides national carrier Air India.

Jet Airways has two hubs in India -- Mumbai and Delhi -- while its equity partner Etihad Airways operates through its hub in Abu Dhabi.
