Ostend-based freight forwarder Flightwatch will open a new office at Brussels Airport next year as it looks to be “in the middle of the action”.

The company, which specialises in the transport of live animals and special cargo, said the new office would be situated close to airline offices and handling agents.

“We are convinced that by opening a branch at Brussels Airport, we will be able to establish an even better relationship with the airlines and handling agents,” said company co-founder Francesca Braet.

Co-founder Nathalie Desimpel added: “By being in the middle of the action, we are closer to the air cargo activity, which allows us to provide our valued customers an even better service by monitoring their shipments even more on the spot.”

Sven Corthals, sales and reservations, added: “Being present at Brussels Airport will also help us attract customers from different industries, allowing us to broaden our horizons.

“With our many years of experience in shipping precious cargo, such as Day Old Chicks and Hatching Eggs, we are very familiar with a close follow-up for our shipments.

“This expertise will surely offer an advantage in our search of new business.”
