Secutity Check lines at Brussels AIrport

Question

Last Thursday I had to wait for like 1 hour around 18 in the evening. (It was only one checkpoint though) I this normal, or was it something special about that evening. (Eve of a long week-end)?

As you say, it was the evening before a three day weekend in peak summer. I'm almost surprised that it was only 1 hour. You can easily get 45-60 minute waits at busy times at the airport.

There was a big police presence in town on the holiday due to numbers expected for the fireworks and bags searched so not just the airport and who knows what intelligence they have also peak time to fly so more people mean slower queues
