Freighter fillip for Brussels

Cargo at Brussels Airport grew across all segments in January compared with the same month last year – including the first increase in full freighter traffic for four years, said the airport authority.
A 3.8 per cent rise in all-cargo aircraft tonnage (excluding integrators) at the Belgian hub contributed to a 9.4 per cent overall growth in freight. Bellyhold traffic was up four per cent and integrator-operated freighter business rose 9.4 per cent.
Figures were boosted by the arrival of Ethiopian as a new cargo operator in mid-January, and Qatar Airways. Existing customer DHL also showed strong growth.
Food and pharmaceuticals remain the airport’s main cargo focus.
