Liege Airport (IATA: LGG, ICAO: EBLG), previously called Liege-Bierset, is an international airport located 5 nautical miles (9.3 km; 5.8 mi) west[1] of the City of Liège in the Province of Liège in Wallonia, Belgium, mainly focusing on air freight. At the end of 2018, it was the 7th biggest cargo airport in Europe and the 22nd biggest in the world.[]

Overview

The airport is located in Grâce-Hollogne, Liege Province, north-west of the city of Liege, in the east of Belgium. The first terminal on the site opened in 1930.[2]

It is mainly used for freight/cargo operations, but also serves a number of destinations for passengers (mainly charters). Liege is located in the centre of the golden triangle Paris - Amsterdam - Frankfurt that handles 66% of European freight, and 75% when taken together with London. In 2018 it was the seventh biggest cargo airport in Europe. Liege Airport is the biggest cargo airport in Belgium, and the third-biggest for passengers after Brussels Airport and Brussels South Charleroi Airport.[3] It is the global hub of ASL Airlines Belgium (the former TNT Airways) and is also used by several other cargo carriers on a scheduled or irregular basis.
