Brussels Airport, 19 May 2016

Passenger and cargo transport at Brussels Airport is recovering after 22 March attacks

In March and April Brussels Airport has welcomed 1.2 million and 1.1 million passengers respectively, a 29.1% decrease for March and a 46.5% decrease for April on last year. The cargo volume dropped by 20.9% in March on the corresponding month in 2015. For April a 4.8% decrease was recorded. These negative growth figures are the result of the temporary suspension of operations at Brussels Airport following the 22 March attacks in the departures hall. In the last weeks of April the airport recorded growth in both passenger and cargo traffic. Less than a month after the attacks the confidence of the passengers and (cargo) customers in Brussels Airport is being restored.
