BRUSSELS – The board of management at Brussels Airport has given the green light for the construction of a pier and terminal specifically for low cost airlines at the national airport.

Brussels Airport has long had the ambition of attracting more budget airlines to Zaventem. Low cost carriers are growing rapidly and Brussels Airport wants to get in on the action. That is why a new pier and terminal will be built, exclusively for low cost companies. This new structure will be built near the demolished southern pier.

Passengers travelling by low cost airline have very specific demands. They not only want to pay less, they also want faster service and more flights. The new terminal and pier must be able to meet these demands. Extremely low operation costs will make the use of this terminal and pier less expensive than use of the rest of the airport.

The first estimates say that about EUR 15 million will be needed for the construction and renovation work. Brussels Airport wants to put the terminal and pier into operation in 2009 at the latest.

Several budget carriers already service Zaventem, including both Easyjet and Ryanair.
