After the first flying events at the Wilrijkse Plein, work on a proper airport for the city started in 1921, under the impulse of pioneer aviator Jan Olieslagers and others. Sabena operated passenger services from 1924 from an old railway carriage as the only passenger infrastructure. A proper airport terminal was ordered by minister Maurice Lippens and inaugurated in 1930.
The airport was home to the aircraft factory Stampe et Vertongen until its demise after WW2.
During World War II the airport was used by the Luftwaffe, and also served the nearby Erla aircraft factory. After the German retreat in 1944, it saw brief use by Allied air forces, who called it B-52 (other sources state B-70).
BMI Regional announced the termination of their route to Manchester for 29 November 2013. The scheduled routes to London-City and Manchester accounted for 63% of the passenger traffic in 2011.
