Toulouse Airport Reopened After Evacuation for Police Checks

The Toulouse-Blagnac airport in southwestern France was briefly evacuated Wednesday morning because of a suspect package, a day after deadly attacks struck Brussels.

“End of the security control. The airport has reopened,” the airport said on its Twitter account. “Flights are restarting progressively.”

Identity and ticket checks will be introduced at the entrances to stations and airports, France’s Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Tuesday after bombings on the Brussels metro and at the city’s airport killed at least 31 people. 

Security has been reinforced at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports, Aeroports de Paris, which operates the hubs of the French capital, said Tuesday. Controls have been at the highest levels since the November terrorist attacks in Paris.
