Brussels Airlines is also with Lufthansa Group and travelers can fly from Denver to Germany then to Brussels on Lufthansa Airlines.

In a statement on its website, Brussels Airlines said: “Due to two explosions at Brussels Airport this morning, March 22nd, the airport is closed until further notice. As a consequence all flights to and from Brussels Airport are cancelled today.

“Passengers holding a ticket for a Lufthansa Group flight (Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian Airlines and Germanwings) between today and 28 March to/from/via Brussels can rebook or refund their ticket for free.

“Passengers who booked their ticket via a travel agency are kindly asked to contact the agency for their rebooking or refund.”
