Bumper year for Brussels South Charleroi

Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) ended 2014 on a positive note and last year welcomed more than six million passengers, which was 6% more than what the gateway was expecting.

BSCA’s CEO, Jean-Jacques Cloquet, is pleased with the airport’s performance, which is obviously linked to its assets: "At the end of 2013, Ryanair’s announcement to reposition three aircraft to Zaventem Airport created havoc.

“Together with our staff, we worked on our methods and processes to best cancel out the impact of this announcement.

“Our efforts allowed us to not only reduce the expected loss of customers from 900,000 passengers to 350,000 – which means 5% less than the 11% initially announced at the beginning of the year, but to also generate a better aircraft load factor.

“We also welcomed two new airlines, Thomas Cook and Pegasus Airlines. Thanks to our airport’s accessibility, Pegasus is able to offer to our passengers faraway destinations like Dubai, Doha, Tel Aviv, through its hub located in Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen.”
