Official sources said Ganesh is an Infosys employee and hails from Bengaluru.

Two Jet Airways crew members — Nidhi Chaphekar and Amit Motwanai — were injured in Tuesday's explosions at Brussels' Zaventem airport and Swaraj said they are recovering well. Both Nidhi and Amit are from Mumbai.

"I have just spoken to Manjeev Puri, our Ambassador in Brussels. He has informed me that Nidhi and Amit are both
recovering well," she said.

Swaraj said government was coordinating with Jet airways to evacuate Indian citizens.

"The airport is still not open. This may take some time. We are coordinating with @jetairways on alternate plans to
evacuate our citizens," she said.

The airline, which has cancelled its flight services to Brussels till Thursday in view of the closure of the airport following Tuesday's blasts, also said its teams are closely working with the local authorities for resumption of operations.

Brussels airport serves as the Mumbai-based airline's European hub for its international operations, which is now
being relocated to Dutch capital Amsterdam from coming Sunday.
