'Brussels Airport is once again seeing growth in the full cargo segment across almost all existing clients,' the hub said in a statement.
'New routes from Asia are a major contributor to this steady growth. Asia remains the most important region, followed by North America and Africa.'
Year to date, total cargo volumes increased 35.8 per cent year on year to 490,655 tonnes.
The number of cargo flights operated at the hub increased seven per cent year on year to 1,907.
'The number of flights operated by passenger aircraft used to carry freight only reduced slightly from month to month, due primarily to the resumption of regular passenger flights. In July, they still accounted for one-third of full cargo flights.'
