Brussels Airport celebrates its 60th birthday

This year Brussels Airport celebrates its 60th anniversary. On this occasion, last week, 60 free cakes were given to passengers and staff.

The airport has been officially opened on July 5, 1958. Currently, Brussels Airport serves 238 destinations, sends and receives about 650 planes every day.

Throughout the years, the airport has undergone extensive change and expansion.

Today the airport welcomes 238,000 flights a year and has 30 bar/restaurants and plenty of shops. Federal transport minister François Bellot said: “In its 60 years of existence, Brussels Airport has become a major economic player in our country and accounts for tens of thousands of direct and indirect jobs.”

About a third of the airport’s revenue comes from its restaurants and shops and the airport claims to sell the most chocolate in the world – about 800 tonnes a year, or 1.5kg per minute.
