9-Jan-2013 1:29 PM

Belgium’s Brussels South Charleroi Airport reported (08-Jan-2013) the airport’s passenger traffic growth of 10% year-on-year to 6.5 million in 2012 is in line with the airport management’s forecast “despite the difficult economic circumstances”. During 2012, 12 new destinations were added to the airport’s route network including Nice and Palma de Mallorca by Jetairfly, Wizz Air’s scheduled service to Ljubljana, and Ryanair’s services to Alghero, Budapest, Chania, Corfu, Münich-Memmingen, Rodez, Turku and Warsaw Modlin. The most significant raise in passenger numbers was realised on services to Budapest, Palma de Mallorca and Pula due to frequency increases. Looking ahead to 2013, the airport maintains a “conservative” forecast, adding it “does not foresee a significant increase in passenger numbers although new routes will be opened”.
