Ostend-Bruges Airport announces satisfactory year results 2017

During the year 2017 Ostend-Bruges Airport welcomed 365.345 passengers, registered 22.708 flight movements and treated 23.369 tonnes of cargo.

Results
Although 365.345 passengers in 2017 represent a decrease of 16% compared to 2016, the overall result is remarkable. Following last year’s Terrorist Attacks in Brussels, the airport welcomed 120.000 extra passengers unable to fly from Brussels Zaventem. When excluding these passengers from the total result, Ostend-Bruges Airport would achieve in 2017 an increase of 15% compared to 2016. 

The airport increased its cargo trafic with 5% compared to 2016, with the strongest growth during the last 3 months of the year.

Future
This upcoming summer season the airport offers four new destinations with TUI adding flights to Sharm el Sheikh, Hurghada, Corfu and Djerba. TUI will now operate a total of 25 summer routes from Ostend-Bruges Airport.

Interest for cargo flights also increases since freight forwarders are in search of alternatives for the much congested airports of Amsterdam, Liège and Brussels.    

General Aviation is expected to grow due to the construction of the Business Terminal. Private- and business flights will provide a new boost to Ostend-Bruges Airport starting with the official opening of the Business Terminal next year.
