On Wednesday 12 October, the Aviation Press Club of Belgium and Luxembourg has conferred the title of “Man of the Year 2015” on Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company.
Arnaud Feist received the award for the remarkable development Brussels Airport underwent under his leadership in 2015 and for the good contacts he entertains with journalists.
“I am very honoured to receive the Man of the Year Award from the Aviation Press Club. 2015 was a remarkable year for Brussels Airport, with the opening of Connector and a record 23.5 million passengers. This year, Brussels Airport is facing different challenges. After the 22 March attacks, we had to rebuild the airport and regain the confidence of passengers. The award may have been conferred for 2015, but I would like to dedicate it to all airport staff who, in 2016, gave it their best to make Brussels Airport even stronger and better than it was before,” says Arnaud Feist.
Although the members of the APC had decided to award Arnaud Feist "Man of the Year" before the attacks on Brussels Airport on 22 March, the presentation of the award was postponed until now because of them.
