*The amount of passengers that used the airport of Antwerp in 2017 has decreased by 1.2% compared to 2016. However, if we exclude the impact of the attacks of 2016; the total number would be up by 6%. In 2016, there was a peak for the months of March and April with 20.000 additional passengers. Several airlines, including TUI, operated in that period quite a few flights departing from Ostend as an alternative to Brussels Airport.

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.
