Of course there are a lot of connecting passengers on CDG-BRU, these flights are only bootable as connecting flights... But a significant portion of these passengers traveled from Brussels to Paris by FlixBus first because CDG-BRU-FIH is cheaper than BRU-FIH. Often the ones who check their bags in the evening before.
From Brussels Midi train station AF is often cheaper than SN as well.
It would be interesting to know how many pax from Brussels Midi connect at CDG.
From experience, the AF agency@ Bruxelles Midi is where I book all my AF long haul, but it is not a scientific study obviously, the agency is often full of African customers who go to Douala, Yaoundé and Kinshasa via CDG and AF.

For the moment it will be for events. Now majority of it is outside of the airport territory
In future it can be partially also for pure aviation related business, but all options are open for the moment

Will there be an official inauguration with an invitation to the press (and the VIPs of course) ?

Yes of course. On the 27th during the day is first for all employees who can see it as first. Later that day, I think evening, is for press

The facade of the terminal, departure hall, is under renovation.

The side wall, next to this one of the Deloitte building, is already finished. This is done in the same stone as the Deloitte building.

Now the front part is under renovation

Renovation of the facade?

Is there any global plan/new design for the terminal? What architect designed it? Where are the renders?

Instead of an overall ambitious plan they will 'renovate' bit by bit without any global approach?


Please tell me I'm wrong.

Pictures available ??

Hopefully it will be more than some 'make up'.
And hopefully in harmony with rest of the Terminal buildng ??

It is in harmony of course. The front side will be in the same style as the Deloitte and KPMG building.

Thats why from the air side we also have the same style. Dark blue windows in the new renovated Skyhall, like at Deloitte and KPMG

Regarding the terminal itself, there will be a prolonging of the terminal in the direction where the former DHL building was. But this is still under reservation.

Interesting!

You mean where the current (old) Swissport builing is located?

Does this mean that the entire front facade (everything we can see on below picture) will have a unified, 'glass' look?

I would say: finally! But I would add a beautiful roof structure like this one below. This would give the airport a much needed, modern look!

A little change in the shareholders of BRU. Two new shareholders are added to the portfolio. We have now for the first time a Japanese investor and a second Australian shareholder.
The Australian State Investor TCorp and the Government pension investment fund of Japan took over a part of Ontario Teachers. They claimed that they are still the biggest shareholder.

More variety and new chances.

Beautiful artistic rendering, Boavida. Congratulations !
I would just extend the roof a bit to the left, so that, when it rains, I am sure to be able to cross the "noman's land" between the parking lot and the entrance of the air terminal when I park my car in P1. ;)
