The Belgian travel industry is able to look back on a stable summer compared to last year, says Claude Perignon of the Association of Belgian Tour Operators (ABTO) in De Zondag.
Never before have there been so many Belgians deaths reported from holiday destinations abroad.
The number of passengers travelling through Brussels Airport so far this year increased by about 6,000 per day compared to the same period in 2013.
Travel company Thomas Cook plans to introduce a new “fast track” check-in procedure this winter, promising them a wait half as long as other passengers.
Passengers travelling from Brussels Airport yesterday were faced with longer queues than usual because of industrial action by staff at Belgocontrol, the national air traffic control agency.
Record numbers of passengers are expected at Brussels Airport from Thursday, 26 June, the day when the holiday season kicks off in earnest.
Nearly half of the Belgians planning to go on a trip this summer had not yet booked their trip by the beginning of May. Of those opting for a camping holiday, 70% did not yet have any set plans.
