Despite a global economic slowdown, Liege Airport has achieved a new record with over 900,000 tonnes of goods transported in 2019.
Liege Airport continues to develop, with a new record of 902.480 tonnes (+3.6%) of transported goods compared with 870.644 tonnes in 2018.
The activity of the air cargo sector slowed globally in 2019. Brexit and the trade war between China and the United States considerably influenced world trade and, as a result, the transport of goods.
Passenger activity remained stable with 170,737 passengers passing through the airport.
Liege Airport, 7th cargo airport in Europe and 1st in Belgium, is the only European airport that prioritises full cargo (#freightersfirst). It specialises in express transport, electronic commerce, pharmaceutical products and perishable goods, as well as live animals. Liege Airport, and its brand Flexpress, is operational 24/7 without restrictions, offering a flexible and fast service, all less than a day’s journey by truck to the heart of the Amsterdam-Paris-Frankfurt golden triangle with its 400 million consumers.
