TUI fly will check hand bagage more strictly

TUI fly will monitor more closely whether passengers actually comply with the rules concerning hand baggage. More and more passengers are travelling with hand baggage that exceeds the official standards in terms of size and weight. Due to the limited space for hand baggage on board, it is almost impossible to store all this baggage safely on many flights. As a result, more and more of the hand baggage is forced to be loaded into the cargo hold, which often leads to dissatisfaction on the part of the traveller.

From now on TUI fly will always perform checks at the check-in desk to ensure that the boarding of the aircraft goes a lot smoother.

Year results 2018

During the year 2018 Ostend-Bruges Airport welcomed 420.000 passengers and treated 28.000 tonnes of cargo.


Compared to 2017, 420.000 passengers represent an increase of 15%. Almost equalizing the record of 2016 having 435.000 passengers due to the Terrorist Attacks in Brussels. The airport increased its cargo traffic with 20% compared to 2017 (23 500 tonnes).

This upcoming summer season the airport increases its flights to Alicante (6 times a week), Malaga (6 times a week), Ibiza (2 times a week and 3 times between July and September) and Corfu (1 time a week and 2 times between July and September).

Interest for cargo flights also increases since freight forwarders are in search of alternatives for the much congested airports of Liège and Schiphol. There were more occasional landings of the American cargo company Kalitta.    

Business and training flights have remained stable. In April 2019, the new Business Terminal will open.

Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp Airports represented at Antwerp Holiday Fair Jan 24th-27th

The largest holiday fair in Flanders will be held at Antwerp Expo this year, from Thursday Jan 24th till Sunday Jan 27th. Exhibitors at the fair will be divided in two groups: the close to home holidays and the far from home holidays. Our stand can be found in hall 4 at stand 4600 with the far from home holidays, meaning holidays for which you travel by airplane.

Airports invite professionals on opening day

At the opening, Thursday morning, we fly right into the action. From 10am to 12am all tour operators and other professionals will be welcome in the BLACK BOX in hall 1 (stand 1403), which has been rented out by the Airport. The BLACK BOX is an area that has been customized in order to  inform participants, in a private and very hospitable atmosphere, of current and future flight offers. TUI fly (with spokesman Piet Demeyere), Flybe (with marketing director Bernd Behrend) and new company La Nova (with CEO David Roman) will demonstrate their strengths and illustrate their cooperation with the regional Airport(s). Marcel Buelens, CEO of both regional Airports, will start things off.

Visitors will be pampered

Airline announces new route from Ostend-Bruges Airport

Airline announces new route from Ostend-Bruges Airport

Thursday 20 December 2018 – Pobeda, low cost branch of the Russian Aeroflot Group, announced the launch of three weekly flights to Moscow (Vnukovo). This is an important extension of the airport’s network as it is for the airline since it is their first Belgian route.

Flights will be operated three times per week as of March 7th 2019 on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The Pobeda airline fleet consists only of 24 modern Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Marcel Buelens, CEO of Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp Airport is delighted: “These new scheduled flights are great news for our airport but also for the entire region. Tourism in Flanders will profit from this connection, enabling both short breaks as longer stays. Besides the Belgian passengers we expect to attract customers from nearby North of France and the South-West of The Netherlands.”


Seats on the direct flights from Ostend-Bruges to Moscow are now available www.pobeda.aero. Please note: flights start as of 7 March 2019. When selecting your flight, chose departure airport Bruges (Ostend). Full details will follow mid January.
