On Friday Belgium’s largest airport received 51,600 passengers, according to figures from the company which runs Brussels Airport, in its busiest day since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Exceeding the 50,000 mark is important and it serves to motivate the whole community at Brussels Airport that has been hit hard by the coronavirus crisis since March 2020.Brussels Airport
Typically, the last weekend of July is a busy travel day, particularly at airports and on the roads, as many people return from their annual July summer holiday and others depart for their August holiday. However, despite the high number of visitors, passenger numbers at Brussels Airport, located in Zaventem, figures were still just 54% of what they were pre-pandemic on 30th July 2019. Meanwhile there were several days during July where the number of visitors at Brussels Airport exceeded 45,000.
In a press statement on Saturday morning Brussels Airport said they were pleased with the number of people who passed through the airport on Friday and that it was good motivation for the airport going forwards.
