Test-Aankoop asked the opinion of over 11,000 travellers about airports. The international airports of Antwerp and Ostend-Bruges both received an exceptionally good appreciation for quality.

On average, Flemish airports received the highest score from all Belgian airports, with Antwerp even being ranked top five after Singapore Changi, Tokyo Narita, Porto and before Doha International Airport. Both airports scored far better than average in terms of safety, signalling and security control.
