Antwerpen International Airport (IATA: ANR, ICAO: EBAW) is located 2 km from the city of Antwerp, Belgium. In 2005 it served about 105,937 passengers with scheduled, business and charter flights. In 2010, the airport served 162,840 passengers. The airport is also home to a maintenance hangar of CityJet.
The airport is operated by the Department of Mobility and Public Works of the Flemish government. The Flemish Government made an agreement with Egis Group to operate it starting 2014 for a duration of 25 years. Due to its short runway length only just over 1500 metres, it is not possible to operate larger aircraft than the Boeing 737 at the airport.
