The previous agreement was particularly unbalanced. Belgian airlines were entitled to operate 28 flights per week to China, which had to be divided between passenger and cargo flights. The airlines operating from China were allowed more than double, with 60 flights to Belgium.
The office of Mobility Minister Georges Gilkinet confirmed that a new agreement has been reached, which “is the result of a discussion conducted autonomously by the BCAA, in accordance with the current legal framework”.

L’Echo understands that connections have been expanded with immediate effect to 50 flights per week for airlines based in Belgium and 70 flights for airlines based in China.
From the summer season of 2025, this should increase to 60 and 77 flights respectively. From the summer of 2027, this would involve 84 connections for the two countries.
