An increasing number of travelers are finding their way to the regional airports in Belgium. The ease of access, short distances and a hassle free environment are major advantages of our airports, and are also the reasons why an increasing number of travelers are choosing to fly from our airports.
Results from our Delight survey for Antwerp Airport (861 respondents) in May 2016 also show why people are travelling from this airport.
The works at the airport terminal are advancing and are expected to be ready by the beginning of next year. Besides the fact that passengers will now enjoy much more space airside, the expansion works will also allow us to improve our service offerings for the travelers with a bar, shop and VIP zone. This is in line with the strategy of Antwerp Airport – to optimize the customer experience.
Following a yearly tradition, Antwerp Airport welcomed the holy man Saint Nicholas and his helpers at the airport on Sunday 20th November. Hundreds of children awaited his arrival on what must have been the most windy day of the year. This initiative is organized by a group of local businesses and receives the full support of the airport as part of our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) program. Events like these allow us to connect with the local community in a positive manner and is part of our strategy to enhance the interaction between the airport and its neighbors.
