  • La fermeture nocturne de Bruxelles-National ferait perdre 457.000 tonnes de fret et 1,2 mia. de BEF par an
    La fermeture nocturne de l'aéroport de Bruxelles-National, comme l'avait suggéré Isabelle Durant, ministre des Transports et de la Mobilité dans son arrêté ministériel qui a été retiré mercredi dernier, entraînerait la perte de 457.000 tonnes de fret par an; l'aéroport passerait de la 5e à la 20e place en Europe. Les pertes financières nettes seraient de 1,2 mia. de BEF (pour BIAC, Belgocontrol etc) et il faudrait y ajouter une perte pour l'Etat de 2,2 mia. de BEF (impôts et sécurité sociale). Pour DHL mais aussi pour nombre d'autres transporteurs aériens et surtout nombre de leurs clients, il n'y aurait pas d'autre solution que de déménager.
