Strong passenger growth of 7.5% at Brussels Airport in January
Cargo volume down with departure of Ethiopian Cargo

Brussels Airport received almost 1.5 million passengers in January, which is a significant increase of 7.5% compared with January last year. On the other hand, the number of flight movements rose by less than 1%, which means that the passenger load factor was much higher than in January last year. Freight volume declined by 2.4% compared with January last year. The decrease can be attributed to the departure of Ethiopian Cargo, which did not obtain the necessary traffic rights for Belgium.
