During an event at the Sheraton Hotel near the Brussels Airport terminal, Brussels Airport presented a new photobook. The book contains many unique photos all made by Belgian photographer Tom D’Haenens.

It is his second photobook of Brussels Airport.
After a reception, all guests were welcomed by Mr. Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport. He was more than grateful towards Tom D’Haenens and everybody who assisted in the making of this new piece of art.
Few moments later, Mr. Steven Decraene held a short speech. Steven Decraene is a Belgian journalist and an expert on aviation matters. He has a true passion for the airport and has already written a few books on the Belgian aviation scene, including ‘De Crash Van Sabena’ (2002) and ‘Turbulente Tijden’ (2011). For this photobook, he contributed by writing most of the photo captions and other texts in the book.
Finally, it was time for the speech of the photographer, Mr Tom D’Haenens. He stressed out the beauty of the airport, the dedication of all of its employees after the horrendous attacks of 22 March 2016 and his gratitude towards the many people who assisted in the making of this new photobook.
