Nidhi Chaphekar, a Jet Airways crew member who was injured in the Brussels airport bombings, has been discharged from a hospital in Mumbai.

Nidhi (42) was discharged from the Breach Candy hospital in south Mumbai on Monday. She has made significant recovery and has been asked to take rest, a Jet Airways official said on Tuesday.

Nidhi had arrived in the city on a Paris-Mumbai Jet Airways flight on May 6. Since then she was undergoing treatment at the hospital.

On March 22, three bombs went of -- two at the Brussels airport and one at the Mallbeek metro station -- leaving 35 people dead, including three suicide bombers.

She was on her way to board a Jet flight for Newark when the explosions took place.

Nidhi had suffered 15% burns and fractured an ankle.
