Meanwhile, as the enormity of the terrorist attack in Brussels became clearer, Jet Airways issued yet another statement announcing the cancellation of flights on March 22, from Brussels to Newark, Toronto, Mumbai and New Delhi. Flights scheduled on March 22, from Newark and Toronto to Brusels and flights on March 23 from Mumbai, Delhi to Brussels have also been cancelled, the airline informed through a statement. Jet is on Sunday scheduled to shift its hub to Amsterdam, as part of an earlier network plan.

As per initial media reports, the "terror attacks" have already led to 10 deaths with an additional 30 passengers severely injured. Images from the airport showed shattered windows and smoke rising from the airport building. Video footage showed passengers fleeing the building in terror. There were additional blasts at several metro stations in the city.
