I have planned a trip to Berlin with a friend. We are leaving from different airports, he has planned leaving from Brussels (Zaventem airport) with Ryanair on 25th march.
Due to the recent events, Zaventem is closed. According to this communique Ryanair is moving flights to Charleroi. It is unclear whenever all the scheduled flights will be moved or just a part and at what time. It seems that only the departure airport was changed and nothing else.
However Charleroi is a small airport and I find it hard to believe it can cope with all that new air traffic. Also there are rumors that the lines at Charleroi are so huge that it is very hard to leave.
We cannot find official information, we contacted Ryanair (by live chat) yesterday and they had no information for the flights on 25th, only for flights on 23rd and 24th. Currently the chat service is down. As you can imagine, since we need to meet in Berlin, and this is a short trip, we'd like to be able to do some planning today or know if we should to give up.
Has anyone any experience with booked Ryanair flights from Brussels Zaventem scheduled on the past two days? I know this is a question that cannot be answered but: Can I reasonably expect my friend to be able to leave from Charleroi on scheduled time?
