In November, Antwerp Airport welcomed 20,532 passengers and that’s an increase of 32.4% compared to November 2018 (15,499 passengers). The reason for the new record month of November – a record since 2001 – is three-way: the success of Air Antwerp’s 16-weekly flights to London City, a higher occupancy rate on the charters towards e.g. Tangiers, Morocco and an increase of business jets (+13%). The airport highlights its on-time performance: almost 99% of the flights left the airport on time.
In November, Ostend-Bruges Airport welcomed 21,936 passengers, an increase of 3.9% compared to November 2018. A series of charter flights of Belgian and foreign football clubs, more training flights and a higher capacity of TUI fly Belgium aircraft on the existing routes. The business jet movement increased by 30%.
