Delta Air Lines, which suspended its flights from Atlanta to Brussels, has begun selling tickets for the route that it will restart in March 2017.

Delta stopped flying the Atlanta-Brussels route after the terrorist attacks in Brussels in March, which included bombing at the airport.

As flights resumed at the Brussels airport after the attacks, Delta in April resumed its New York-Brussels flights, but said it would suspend its Atlanta-Brussels service until March 2017.

“It has been a difficult few months for the local community but we remain committed to Belgium,” said Delta senior vice president Dwight James in a written statement.

The flights will be on Boeing 767-300s with 225 seats. The Brussels-Atlanta flight will arrive at Hartsfield-Jackson at 2:45 p.m. and the Atlanta-Brussels flight will depart at 5:40 p.m.
