The two airports are expected to serve a combined 150,000 passengers for the summer as demand rebounds.
Two airports in Belgium have seen passenger numbers rebound to almost pre-COVID levels. Ostend-Bruges and Antwerp airports, both in the Flemish Region of Belgium, have seen significant growth over the first half of this year.
The two airports expect a combined total of 150,000 passengers to travel over the next several months as customers look to regional and secondary airports to avoid congestion at major hubs.
Ostend-Bruges International Airport, commonly referred to as Ostend, welcomed over 100,000 passengers during the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 271% compared to the second quarter of 2021. The airport lies along the North Sea and serves the cities of Ostend (Oostende) and Bruge (Brugges), the capital of West Flanders and Unesco World Heritage site often referred to as Venice of the North for its network of canals.
