Brussels - Dozens of flights were cancelled at Brussels international airport Friday after overnight snow falls and ice on runways, the facility said on its Internet site.

Around 30 outbound flights and 70 incoming flights were cancelled, while dozens of others were flagged with delays.

"The situation is expected to improve over the morning," airport spokesman Jan Van der Cruysse said, noting that two runways were back in operation.

Road traffic, after hundreds of kilometres of jams overnight, had returned virtually to normal early Friday.

Train services were barely affected by the snowfalls, although rail operator Infrabel warned passengers to take particular care of ice on platforms.
