This page contains the recent statistics of Antwerp Airport. For more detailed information, the Statistic Yearbook can be requested : firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Antwerp International Airport achieved an all-time record in terms of passenger numbers and welcomed 276.311 passengers in 2016, an increase of 24,9% compared to 2015. In the meantime, the number of movements decreased by 8,6% compared to 2015.
Top month 2016: april (33.576 passengers)
Top destination 2016: Alicante (TUI)
In 2016, the airport welcomed276.311 passengers, an increase of 24,9% compared to 2015. The previous record in passenger numbers was in d 2001, when 273.208 passenger were recorded. Several factors have had a significant impact on these results. First of all, the 440 extra movements and 20.000 additional passengers during the months of March and April have had a significant effect on passenger numbers.
An important trend is the decrease in the number of flight movements. This decline has several explanations: the bankruptcy of VLM Airlines, fewer training flights and the higher occupancy of TUI aircraft. The decrease of the number of flight movements is also due to fewer charter flights with Fokker50 aircraft of VLM.
