Economic centre connects people and companies
Airports are more than just terminals, piers and runways. Besides aviation-related companies, an increasing number of companies from other sectors are relocating to sites on and around the airport. Airports attract people and companies, due to their connectivity and inter-modality.
Airports also play an increasingly important role worldwide as economic growth centres for their country. Such an economic centre is:
- a network of various activities and supporting services that reinforce each other
- a modern and inviting place
- a centre on a human scale for passengers, visitors and for the surroundings
Catalyst for the economy
Brussels Airport wants the economy of our country to grow further and holds several trump cards to achieve this.
- Direct connections stimulate economic growth between companies throughout the world.
- The airport is a source of economic activity and creates jobs.
- Various means of transport converge at the airport. The range of public transport services is unique.
Reputable companies from various industries are already choosing to locate at Brussels Airport. Brussels Airport wishes to have both the cargo area and the area around the airport terminal expand into a corporate eco-system, that will, in turn, create more jobs
Deloitte Belgium resolutely wants to be the ‘Gateway to Europe’. With its location at the airport, Gateway is a strategic hub for our customers, who are frequently organised internationally. The connection with public transport is an additional trump card. Our staff can adjust their commute to work according to their needs and make use of the most efficient means of transport. In addition, the architecture of the building exudes openness, a working environment in which our staff can cooperate flexibly with each other.
- The cargo area Brucargo unites the various links in the logistics chain. In this way, Brucargo can offer high-quality service and, at the same time, respond immediately to new demands and innovate. Two crucial conditions for an open economy such as Belgium to compete more successfully.
- Brussels Airport is the international face of our country. Its allure contributes to the image of Brussels as the leading conference city in Europe and the second largest diplomatic capital in the world.
- Direct flights to the rest of the world facilitate cultural exchange and tourism.
An inter-modal hub will be integrated into the terminal, a building where train, tram and bus services interconnect.
In addition, space will be created for offices, a congress centre, hotels and service providers.
At Brussels Airport, a new economic centre is developing which offers the most modern facilities to companies and their employees. The direct connections with the rest of the world, the economic activities and the wide range of public transport services are attracting more and more companies. The cross-fertilisation between those companies is generating a new economic dynamism.
