Antwerp International Airport (IATA: ANRICAO: EBAW) is a small international airport serving Antwerp, the second most populous city of Belgium. It is used for some scheduled and charter flights as well as business and general aviation and served 110,320 passengers in 2012. The airport is also home to a maintenance hangar of CityJet.

History

After the first flying events at the Wilrijkse Plein, work on a proper airport for the city started in 1921, under the impulse of pioneer aviator Jan Olieslagers and others. Sabena operated passenger services from 1924 from an old railway carriage as the only passenger infrastructure. A proper airport terminal was ordered by minister Maurice Lippens and inaugurated in 1930.

The airport was home to the aircraft factory Stampe et Vertongen until its demise after WW2.

During World War II the airport was used by the Luftwaffe, and also served the nearby Erla aircraft factory. After the German retreat in 1944, it saw brief use by Allied air forces, who called it B-52 (other sources state B-70).

BMI Regional announced the termination of their route to Manchester for 29 November 2013.[1][2] The scheduled routes to London-City and Manchester accounted for 63% of the passenger traffic in 2011.[3]

Infrastructure

Facilities

The airport consists of one small passenger terminal with basic facilities including service desks and a restaurant. The apron features ten stands for smaller aircraft such as the Fokker 50. As there are no jet bridges, walk-boarding is used. Due to its short runway length only just over 1500 metres, it is not possible to operate larger aircraft than the Boeing 737 at the airport.

Operator

The airport is operated by the Department of Mobility and Public Works of the Flemish Government which made an agreement with the French engineering group Egis Group to operate it starting 2014 for a duration of 25 years.
