Cargo continues its growth at Brussels Airport with a 4% increase
During this first month of 2022, the cargo volumes at Brussels Airport grew by 4% compared to January 2021 and even by 10% compared to January 2019. The airport also welcomed more than 800,000 passengers, an increase of 183% compared to January 2021 but still down by 52% compared to the same period before the crisis (January 2019).
The month was particularly busy due to the high demand for air freight. This phenomenon was partly due to the disruption of global cargo supply chains. A month that was positively impacted by the Christmas holidays but was also marked by the more stringent sanitary measures in Europe. Cargo continued its growth with a 4% increase in total volumes transported compared to January 2021.
