DFW Airport remaining vigilant after Brussels attacks

- American Airlines says none of their employees were injured in a deadly attack at the airport in Brussels.

Despite initial reports that the explosions happened near the American Airlines ticket counter, the airline said it operates at Row 8 of the departure hall and the explosions did not occur near Row 8.

Most people traveling through DFW Airport Tuesday morning said they were not overly concerned about their safety.

A spokeswoman for the airport said at this point all flights remain on scheduled as the security team closely monitors the developments out of Belgium. She would not discuss any specific security changes, but said officers are remaining vigilant.

FOX 4’s Shannon Murray saw several armed officers walking through the terminal and some travelers said that was reassuring.

“I’m sure this will increase security. They’re always on alert,” said Todd Anglin.

“I’m glad to see that additional police are out here, but I think it will be a fine day. I think everything will be okay,” added Ashley Olinghouse.

American Airlines flight 175 from Brussels to Philadelphia has been canceled for the day. That flight was scheduled to continue on to Dallas.

People planning to fly to and from Brussels can call the reservation desk at 1-800-679-8215 or 32-070-300-300 in Belgium to get updated flight and airport information.
