Aviation industry in the Benelux - Statistics and Facts

Aviation is known as the development, production, operation and use of aircraft. The industry in the Benelux is home to leading international companies such as Boeing, Bombardier and contains Europe's third largest airport by number of passengers. It is a thriving industry, with a focus on civil aviation and air cargo transport.

For decades, the Benelux has been a main hub for air transport, which resulted in a strong market position when it comes to passenger and freight transport. This is partly due to its geographical advantage, but infrastructure and high quality services contributed to this status as well. When looking at the air freight transport from both KLM and Luxair, the Dutch Royal Airline saw its annual weight of cargo decrease to approximately 599,000 tons in 2019, while Luxair also had a decrease in freight to 893,000 tons in 2019.

Aviation industry in the Netherlands

In the Netherlands, one of the main airports is Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Owned by Royal Schiphol Group, it is the largest airport in terms of passenger numbers and one of the world's most important transport points in Europe. Schiphol saw their passenger numbers reach 71.7 million in 2019. However, this is more than the airports capacity could handle. It not only led to financial damages and logistical issues, but Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM), who are prominently presented at Schiphol, suffered from it as well. However, KLM's annual revenue increased to 11 billion euros in 2019.

Aviation industry in Belgium

In Belgium, Brussels Airport saw their passenger numbers increase every year, even though the airport dealt with a terrorist attack in 2016. If in 2013 there were roughly 19 million passengers utilizing Brussels airport, in 2019 the number rose to approximately 26.4 million. However, cargo flights at Brussels Airport decreased significantly, although it saw a little increase recently. In 2019, 14,600 cargo flights were registered, but roughly 11,000 more cargo flights were seen in 2007.

Aviation industry in Luxembourg

Looking at Luxembourg Airport, it saw its cargo volume increase from roughly 822,000 tons in 2016 to 957,000 tons in 2018 but decreased in 2019 to 893,000 tons. The airport is known for its larger volumes in air cargo transport, something Luxeair Group contributed to. In 2019, Luxeair Group's revenue amounted to approximately 615 million euros, an increase compared to 2018.

Outlook on the aviation industry in the Benelux region

The growing demand for flights, safety and crowd control management are subjects which became of crucial importance for the civil aviation industry. Furthermore, the rise of low cost airlines such as Easyjet, Ryanair or Wizair made its contribution to the growing demand by providing cheap flights. Therefore, the aviation market will become even more competitive.
