Obama in Brussels : delays possible at airport

Brussels Airport, 03 June 2014 – On 4 and 5 June the G7 summit takes place in Brussels. This summit will also attended by the American President. The arrival and departure of the heads of state entail extensive security measures.

For the same reason, the airport may be difficult to reach on 4 and 5 June. On both days access to the airport by road will be disrupted at several moments. Passengers are therefore advised to provide ample time to travel to the airport.  Arriving passengers too may meet with disrupted traffic when leaving the airport.

Passengers are requested to listen to the traffic information on the radio or check the internet for more details on the traffic situation on both days. (Brussels Airport)

Deal INTRO Aviation-VLM-CityJet closed

 The contract for the takeover of the CityJet Group and VLM Airlines has been signed Wednesday April 30th.
 Today Intro Aviation and VLM held a joint press conference at Antwerp Airport. Although VLM will remain an independent company within the Intro Aviation Group, it is not likely that you will soon see Fokkers in VLM livery. The company is mainly going to develop its ACMI carrier potential. (aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance). This means that they will mainly operate their aircraft on behalf of other companies and carry their brand. Main customer will be CityJet, but other companies will be looked for.

 However the management of VLM announced also that they will further develop on the charter market, where the aircraft will carry the Fly VLM of VLM Airlines brand. There is a good feeling and a strong believe that Antwerp Airport will play a prominent if not bigger role in the future of VLM and CityJet.

April beats all previous records

With nearly 1.9 million passengers handled, Brussels Airport records the best month of April ever. Air cargo volumes too continue to grow.
Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company explains:
“It is for the first time that we beat the historical record figures of the year 2000. A strong performance at the end of a very difficult economic period. In April of this year, we carried slightly more passengers than in April 2000 but with a third less aircraft.“

Passengers
In April 2014 Brussels Airport recorded 1.9 million passengers, up 16.6% on April 2013.  Cargo
Cargo too continues the growth pattern of the previous months. In April, the cargo volume carried again increased by more than 6%. Integrator traffic, e-commerce, the transportation of pharmaceuticals and perishables in particular are performing well.
Movements
With 19,665 flights, the number of movements grew by 7.1% compared to April 2013. Since a few years, the increase in the number of flights has been systematically lower than the growth in passenger number. Due the use of on average larger aircraft and the improvement of the load factor per aircraft, the average number of passengers per passenger flight once again increased. (db)

Parking more expensive than airline ticket!

The results of a recent study show that de Belgian airport car parks are very expensive. Parking at German or Dutch airports is less expensive than leaving your car at Brussels or Charleroi airport. Parking your car for one week at one of these airports will cost you between 80 and 90 Euro’s. And… so the airport car park is, sometimes, more expensive than a low-cost airline ticket !!

Tunnel at end of runway in new phase

As from 8/3/2014 all traffic on the R11 road (Militaire baan) will pass over a new parallel road. This is new road has been constructed so that work on the tunnel at the end of the runway can start. Work will be done mostly during the night as no large matrial such as cranes can be used during opening hours of the airport (7am-11pm). The construction of a tunnel became necessary as the airport needs to install a RESA in order to be compliant with safety regulations. The RESA zone will be implemented on top of the tunnel and will go as far as Fort III. (db)
