BRUSSELS: June 11, 2018. Brussels Airport recorded a 6.9 percent year-on-year jump in cargo volumes carried during the first six months of 2017. 

Brussels airportDuring the first semester of 2018, Brussels Airport carried 6.9% more cargo than in the first six months of 2017.

The fall in full-cargo volume (-7.9 %) is to be attributed to some of the full cargo air carriers leaving or withdrawing because of the stricter noise restrictions imposed by the Brussels Capital Region at the start of 2017. This fall is offset in the first semester of 2018 by a strong rise in belly cargo (+18.4 %) and in trucked air cargo (+22.8 %).

In June 2018, cargo transport at Brussels Airport witnessed a strong 14.6 % increase by comparison with June 2017, courtesy of the strong growth in the full cargo segment (+14.3%) and in the volume of belly cargo carried by commercial flights (+24.3%), with new routes and new flights taken into operation by Hainan, Emirates and Cathay Pacific.

Air cargo went up by (+9.9 %). Exports are continuing to grow (+11%), half of which goes to Asia. But more than anything else, it is imports (+24%), largely hailing from Africa, North America and Asia, that are making a big forward leap.

The amount of trucked air cargo showed a spectacular 29 % boom compared to the same month of last year.
