Belgium airports - Air Charter

As the lockdown is gradually being lifted and the economy is picking up, here is an update on airport capacities in Belgium for air charters. These flexible air freight services can prove essential to secure supply for factories resuming or boosting their output (data correct as of 28/05/2020).

  • Ostende-Bruges (OST): operates 24/7 – note: overnight sound restrictions for certain aircrafts.
  • Anvers-Deurne (ANR) : open 08:00–18:00.
