Brussels Airport struggles

BRUSSELS Airport handled 450,000 tonnes of cargo in 2009: a drop by 32.1 per cent from 2008’s 661,000 tonnes.The airport blamed DHL’s relocation to Leipzig for integrator cargo volumes, which suffered badly from the move, and the demise of Cargo B and the decline of imports and exports in general for the all-cargo traffic decline.Even cargo carried on passenger aircraft showed negative growth despite 38,500 tonnes being handled in December, a growth of 46 per cent.
