Brussels Airport has this week announced the handling of 1.6m passengers in November 2023, with continued pre-pandemic growth on the cards.

The airport handled 10% more passengers compared to the same period last year, with the airfield reaching the 20m passenger mark for the first time since COVID.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

1,613,845 passengers were handled by Brussels Airport in November, with them noting that flight suspensions into Tel Aviv did have a negative impact on passenger numbers.

The airport continued via their statement:

“In November 2023, the number of flight movements increased by 6% to 14,783. The number of passenger flights increased by 10% compared to 2022.”

“As in November 2022, there was an average of 135 passengers per flight. The number of cargo flights dropped by 10% compared to November 2022.”

“The top ten countries visited in November were Spain, Germany, Italy, Turkey, the UK, France, the USA, Switzerland, Morocco and Portugal.”

“It should be noted that at the end of November, Brussels Airport for the first time since 2019 and the COVID-19 pandemic, exceeded the 20 million passenger mark.”

Overall, things do appear to be on the right track for the airport, as they aim to finish the year on a strong high and continue to work away from the pre-pandemic levels.

But for now, let’s see what their overall numbers will look like for 2023, which we will no doubt find out in the new year.
