Since its creation 20 years ago, LIEGE AIRPORT has focused primarily on FULL CARGO, but has now decided to take the next step and set itself the goal of becoming The Flexport ®. The title represents services tailored to the needs of cargo operators and a real alternative to congested, restrictive and prohibitively high cost large airports
Open, accessible and fully operational 24/7, LIEGE AIRPORT stands out from competing main international airports thanks to:
- No congestion.
- No imposed time slots.
- No curfews.
- No time losses in ground operations.
The airport’s infrastructure and organisation are designed to avoid any loss of time in the supply chain.
- Customs, veterinary and phytosanitary controls operate night and day, ensuring rapid goods flow.
- Direct access to aircraft parking positions in immediate proximity to the first line significantly reduces transfer times.
- A large number of actors operating at the airport guarantee a perfectly tailored and optimised treatment whatever the operator’s requirements.
Via an ongoing dialogue with all site actors, LIEGE AIRPORT offers constant improvements to ensure efficiency, flexibility and simplified operational procedures: all departments are committed to respecting a quality charter and negotiated service levels at all points of control.
The best location for accessing the European market
LIEGE AIRPORT occupies a central position at the heart of the golden triangle linking Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt. Nearly 66% of European freight transits within this area. Thanks to an excellent, uncongested motorway network it is possible to reach the largest European cities in less than one day by truck, and therefore reach a potential of almost 400 million consumers.
Taking advantage of this excellent location, the whole region has developed a specific expertise in logistics:
- Liege Logistics is a multimodal platform situated in the immediate surroundings of LIEGE AIRPORT, dedicated to rail-road transport, as well as distribution and logistics.
- The EURO CAREX project, developed in partnership with the airports of Paris, London, Amsterdam and Lyon, is opening new perspectives in the field of freight transport by high-speed train.
- Liege is also the third largest inland port in Europe and situated in the direct hinterland of the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam.
