Volumes of cargo transported continue to rise at Brussels Airport in September

The number of full cargo flights in September is well above the 2019 level, with a slight increase compared to the previous month. The number of additional flights by passenger aircraft used for freight-only flights remains constant. This does not, therefore, lead to an increase in night flights.

Freight transported by lorry is down again (-14.1%), yet the total volume of goods handled by the Brucargo logistics platform is still increasing, with a total increase of 11.4% to 56,748 tons.

Imports and exports are on the rise. As far as imports are concerned, traffic from Africa is doing particularly well. On the export side, Asia is highly valued.

Flights

The total number of flight movements decreased by -66.8% in September 2020 compared to September 2019, to 7,141 (compared to 21,533 in September 2019). The number of passenger flights decreased by 76.5%, while the number of cargo flights increased by 39.9%. The number of passengers per flight was 86.
