In Memphis, airport traffic is moving along normally.

Passengers at Memphis International Airport said the attacks concerned them, but they trust security to keep them safe.

Mark Troncosco has a job that requires him to fly around the country.

"I don't know what to think anymore," Troncosco said. "You could be anywhere and anything could happen just like that."

Memphis International Airport leaders said TSA did not issue any special security directives following the Brussels attack.

MEM leaders said they have a plan in place to make sure passengers stay safe.

"The Airport Police, including K-9 units, have increased their presence and number of patrols at Memphis International Airports."

The increased patrols are scheduled to remain in place at least through the end of the week.

Despite increased patrols, flights continued without any delays.

Passengers said they felt like attacks were part of the world we live in today, but they said that would not keep them from going about their business as usual.

FedEx issued a statement saying all FedEx team members in Brussels were safe. The company said deliveries coming through that airport may experience some delays.

"Operations and deliveries in the Brussels area and near the airport may experience some disruptions due to government security measures, but FedEx expects minimal impact to our operations across the region.  We will continue to monitor the situation and provide the best service possible under the circumstances."
