A series of explosions ripped through Brussels airport and a metro train on Tuesday, killing around 35 people and injuring more than 200 in the latest attacks to rock Europe.
Brussels airport serves as Jet Airways' European hub for international operations. The airline had, however, recently announced relocation of this gateway to Dutch capital Amsterdam from coming Sunday.
