In order to avoid confusion in the interpretation of the statistics, it is useful to know that these specify the number of aircraft movements at the airport, not the number of flights operated. So a flight always consists of two movements (one takeoff and one landing). This is important, especially for training flights which regularly execute “touch-and-go” maneuvers. A touch-and-go is a specific training maneuver for which an aircraft flies on, shortly touches the runway with the wheels and then takes off again. Each touch-and-go maneuver consists of two moves and each individual touch-and-go is considered in the context of the airport’s environmental permit as one flight.
After every calendar year, an activity report is published. This report provides, among other things, a brief presentation of Antwerp International Airport, an overview of the highlights of the past year, some general statistics as well as an explanation of the different activities of the airport.
