Brussels Airport has released an update on its recent cargo operations.
BRUcargo, the division responsible for cargo at the airport stated: “Brussels Airport update As the global air cargo volumes are showing good growth, also at Brussels Airport it has been very busy.
We expect to close the year with more than 10% growth in our cargo volumes compared to last year.
This is the result of both increased volumes of existing customers but also some new customers at our airport.
In September, Atlas Air together with DHL Starbroker started a 3 weekly operation. And as of the start of the winter schedule, we have Hainan Airlines starting a new route to Shanghai and Emirates adding a second daily B777-300.
Emirates also added 2 weekly full cargo flights while Singapore Airlines is adding 4 weekly full cargo flights to its operations.
With some other airlines, both full cargo and passenger, in the pipeline or confirmed (for example Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong end of Q1 2018), we expect this growth to continue in 2018. Several infrastructure and operational projects will be announced very soon to coop with this expected strong growth in the years to come.”
