Flanders International Airport or Flanders Airport (IATA: KJK, ICAO: EBKT) is an airport located in Belgium, in the town of Wevelgem and partly also in the Bissegem section of the city of Kortrijk (2 nautical miles (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) west.[1]

Origins[edit]

The airport was created in 1916 by the Germans during the First World War.

Features[edit]

The airport runway is 1,900 m × 45 m (6,234 ft × 148 ft).[1] Alongside a section of the airport is a business park, some of which is restricted to enterprises undertaking airport related activities: several of the business park tenants have paid for direct private access to the runway. The aerodrome used to offer IFR ("instrument" or "blind flying") procedures, but as of June 2017 these had been withdrawn from the AIP. In 2019, an RNAV approach, GNSS based, is given in the AIP.

Uses[edit]

It is mainly used as a business airport. One of the main users of this airport is Abelag Aviation, though it is also used by flying clubs and schools. According to its official website around 100,000 passengers use the airport every year.[2]
